JaxPT,

There's an old saying...if you have to ask about the price...your can't afford it! Only kidding, but this mod is real expensive...we are talking a couple thousand after all the work and painting. The real reason I'm posting is to caution you against a scam that was on eBay. Someone or persons unknown was selling the suicide door kits for a couple hundred dollars and it turned out to be screws, bolts and a couple regular home door hinges and a couple lines of instructions.....so keep on doing what your doing...ask question and see the examples of anyone doing the work...it pays to take your time and shop around.

Agreed. You get what you pay for. There are a lot of locals who know more about it...go here:
www.teameci.com/forums

They are an import club and their forums tend to be quite informative when it comes to custom body work

PTeazer has done one PT Cruiser. The job that they did is fantastic.




It isn't a kit because the work is very extensive. It has to be done "in house." I have no idea what the cost for this mod is except to say that the owner of PTeazer couldn't believe that someone was willing to spend that much money for the mod.

thanks for the pics and the links. it was more for future reference,I saw this hinge kit http://store.yahoo.com/streetbeatcus...ikitfor2d.html
and just wondered how much fabrication was involved on an install like that. I've just always loved the look of the doors like this http://www.cardomain.com/memberpage/329976.

JaxPT, here's the PT with the Lambo doors, but the rear doors are not suicide.
