Post An idea to transform my Suby a bit....

Is it possible to transform the doors into Lamborghini style...I saw an RX7 like that..looked pretty cool. How much would it cost....What about DeLorean gull wing style?

Sure it can be done. Its expensive though. I saw a CRX with Lambo doors once. It was kinda cool.

Useless unfo, if you go to www.beaterz.com (it's a riceboy page) and look in the archives you should be able to find the link to the CRX on E-Bay with the Lambo doors...

Delorean doors on a frameless? that sounds either impossible or a whole lotta work. The lambo thing sound kinda cool though...i'd give you props if you pulled it off. then i'd ask to see a pic of the money actually flying out of your butt

A friend of mine did this on a Ford Ranger pickup. He had to reinforce the windshield supports and add a gas strut. The locking mechanism had to be completely redesigned so he went with shaved door handles and a "popping" system. It was always a real pain in the a*s to get into since the strut had to be mounted at such an angle that it gave the door a decent amount of resistance. The door opening is completely different on the Subaru's since we don't have door frame's etc.... I'd be interested in seeing how this works out for you.

Don't forget to add a flux-capacitor on that thing too! "21.7 JIGAWATTS!"

I'm not gonna do it, I'm just wondering how it would look. Like I could afford something like that (just starting college and no summer job as of yet). Even if I got a summer job I wouldn't be able to afford the conversion.
