Matt,
There are several different kinds illustrated on the CJ2A Forum. Use their advanced search and look for, "half doors" to see several.

I personally like this version the best as it uses factory hinges vs. attaching other brackets/other attachment points.

Not sure how important the arm rest angle is as that may be up to personal preference.

I once did a set for a friend:

... the inside has a pocket:

... he bolted the curtain to the tub on the bottom and used turn buttons in front to open the curtain.

If you look at the third picture, you can see that the inside has a flap that drapes over the tub edge. I have found that if you make that flap 5 or 6 inches long, it will hold the bottom of the curtain up against the edge of the tub in most situations and you don't even need fasteners on the bottom.
