suicide doors are more than just hinges dude!

the whole locking mechanisim needs to be moved!

as for flip doors again it is not just as simple as adding hinges, i think u can buy them off ebay but i would be very weary of them

plus would look crap on a 4 door

if u wanted to do a door mod the suicide doors would be cool

i think the things on ebay are actually just selling a generic set of instructions, not actual parts. so be careful if you look on there.

yeah the ones on ebay are just instructions.

Suicide doors have been done on a e-series, but i havent seen one done on a AU as yet. i thinkg lambo doors on a AU ute would look alright. seen the lambo doors on a 4 dooor commy, looked very much out of place.

Suicide doors would look alright on a 4 door though.

how many lambo door conversions look crap? even if you could get them to line up properly, close smoothly and look half decent, most of the time theres no access into the car as the door is placed so awkwardly that it covers half the opening. whats the point? wank factor 10

Thats a good point.I guess you could always try to find a place with 2 spaces side by side and angle park it.Be polite and stick a cardboard sign in the window saying my doors don't open straight therefore I need these to spaces.Lol
