Default Vertical Door Kit

I am very interested in finding a made for make and model LSD kit but have yet to find one. I have found universal kits and I have found CD-roms explaining how I can do it myself. The amount of money these companies want for a hinge kit is just insane ($1295.00 - $2004.00). I have found one person who has a LSD kit on his PT but have yet to here back for him at Supie.com. It's a couple of multi directional hinges and struts not an on-board computer navigation system. Can someone explain the extreme cost of these kits to me. Till I find a kit for my car that someone will stand behind for the life of my car I can't bring myself to buy a set. I'll just keep looking.

The lambo style doors just do not seem to open far enough to actually enter and exit the car without doing some kind of "lambo-limbo". When the doors are fully open, how much of the opening really is OPEN??? I never see pictures, close up, from the rear of any PTs with this option.

I'm the one who owns the Dream Cruiser most seen on the internet with Lambo Doors. I've had them for over two years and never had a problem. They open about 18"-20" which is plenty of room for me to get in and out. If your are a larger person it would probably be easier for you to get in and out by lifting of the car.

I think your asking if vertical door hinges from another car (87 Caprise ??) will fit on your cruiser. If that is your question, I thought that each door kit is made especially for a particular car, so it wouldn't fit on your PT, unless there is such a thing as a "Universal" kit for all cars.

just out of curiosity, isn't there a way to convert the hatch door to open vertically? I'm 5'2" and trying to reach the hatch door after opening it horizontally is a PITA (pain in the a$$).

if that's the case it's possible, what am I looking into in regards to cost, part and labor? or can it be a DIY project?

I've seen a cruiser with the rear hatch split in two, where the glass lifted up and the rest of the hatch went down like a tailgate but I'm sure that cost a bunch of $$$$. As they say, anything can be done with the right cash thrown at it.
