u wont have to cut much on the doors....u just weld in the new hinge were the striker was....then u switch the latches...it should only take a day tops if u are doing this one deep....holla

p.s. dont forget to have a floor jack or a friend because car doors are kinda heavy :biggrin:

it is pretty easy if you know how to weld then you know its not that hard to do...the most he will have to do is weld in some square stock inside the door to give strength to the new hinge...then he will saw-zaw a hole for the new hinge on the body...weld in a piece of plate...then weld the hinge to it, now doing the strikers is all he will need anyone for...its not a 2 day job the kits they got no are so simple to install...i remember when suicide doors use to be hell to do cuz u really had to flip all the old mounts and custom make your brackets....shit shops in town with do your door and have u ready to go by the next day....holla
