    or do you want gull wing doors like a delorean...


    when cut open, the rambutan unfortunately fails miserably to deviate from its outwardly testicular appearance, revealing an inside that looks for all the world exactly how you'd expect the contents of a scrotum to look.

    And also do a search for lambo doors on beyond.

    I have never understood why those kits are so expensive, I've seen the parts and they arent that impressive. 2 specialty hinges, 2 heavy duty shocks and 2 harness extensions. if a guy could get his hands on a set, a copy shouldnt be too hard to make. can anyone fill me in?

    I agree with you, but I think it's because it's such a low production item. I mean yeah, they are quite basic as far as parts go, but they do have to go through all the design, prototyping, production crap for every car, and turn a profit doing it (and by the looks of it, quite a good profit). I mean should an AEM CAI (admittedly not a low production item) really cost as much as it does?

    Why don't you buy one and do it then? Make a little cash and make some deals for the beyond guys so everyone can have cheap Lambo doors? You could make a pretty penny if you sold high quality shit for less then other places.

    I have thought of it, I have the machines to do it, the liabilities, and the risk have so far deterred me. lol.

    just to get an idea, who would be interested in a kit?

    I'm pretty sure many would be interested in a kit, let me know if u need some help in R&D or scouting products out to use and sell for a package.

    well after talking to a number of people who are interested in a vertical door conversion I decided to design one. I am half way through the prototype stage, and if everything goes well I plan to have a working version by mid february. I'll post here when everythings ready.

    that was quick . Design and Prototype within 2 months = risky, give it alot of time and work everything out. Having the littliest problems later = biggest bitches of the whole project.

    I've spend 10 hours a day on it lol. things are slow at my shop.
    but like you said about the little thing, seeing is believing, they are going on my car first for awhile and then when I'm convinced I'll offer them to others. not only that but the base for my design comes from the other kits out there, so I started a bit ahead.

    Thats true I would offer my vehicle to test them on but not to many people want vertical doors on a Camaro so it wouldn't be worth the time. Are you making the kit universal or vehicle specific?

    I have a 99-00 civic, so I am making a kit for that to start. I have heard that it should also fit 94-01 integras 92-01 preludes, and del sols, and crxs, as wel as 88-00 civics. the kit is gonna get tested on my car and an integra.
