I was looking at the universal kits and noticed that they werent realy all that universal and where over priced for the amount of work that have to go in to get em to work righte....

I was told that guys have bien doin em for years on lowrider show cars just not exactly the same as the kits ..

any one know how or know a place with less expensive kits? I've never done anything this extreme as far as body work but I have a car I only have $200 invested in so far and I wanna try it out .....it I fuck up too bad I'lll just snatch the engine out and sell te body to a salvage yard...

also the tail gait on my wagon hinges sideways like a door any one every seen one open vertical?


also a guy told me he could lambo the front and do a suicide lambo on the back doors but didnt have an example to show me.........anyone believe this shit?

anything can be done...........


suicide doors are easier than lambo doors i have played around trying to make my own hinges for lambos and the hardest thing you will find is the ability to adjust the damn doors with them........


as far as the tailgate opening sideways........i believe it was an 83 chevy impala wagon that had this as an option it would open up sideways from the outside and vertical from the inside


good luck

Yes I remember seen this in a jap car tv show.........They had an acura sedan with both the front and rear doors lamboed and the rear suicide.

I'm sure you can engineer something up, but you won't be able to escape from cutting into the rear querter panel

hmm so it is possible? I'ma check take a look at the rear and see what the damage would be to do somthing like this....


this isnt gonna anything close to a show car just somthing I can hit the higheway in and draw a little atention in so hell I I would like to keep the rear in tac and the door gaps straighte but as long as i can get smoot and safe operation I'd be cool
