do a search...

we said it can be done, but is VERY VERY hard, and for one door, look at $10000, 10grand for it to be done if you want a professional doing it.

tiburon's doors don't work well... find the post and re-read it, you had a slight misunderstanding

No, Rav...you're thinking of Butterfly doors. Suicide doors are VERY easy to do on a Tib. And no way does it run 10 grand. Butterfly doors will run that much, but not suicide doors. You're looking at around 2-3 grand without paint to do a set of doors. But that's kind of on the low to intermediate side. Normal pricing would be more like around 3-4 grand for a set of doors. It doesn't take as long to suicide a set of doors like it does to butterfly them. For a shop that's actually knowledgable and has done it alot, you're looking at like 5-6 days total with painting to do them. I can do them in 3 days tops since I've done so many, but that doesn't include painting. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/tongue.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

ok, my bad, i should have checked before asking a stupid question, so i will re-phrase the question: how close are you to suffolk county long island? would i have to drop the car off to you, or is it something that could be done in a couple of days in my driveway/

I'm in upstate, NY (Rochester). I'm only going to be here for a few short more months though and then I'm moving back home to Cali. So this will have to be something relatively planned shortly. As far as price, I can do it, but I'll need help with it. It's better with 2 people working on it. It will take me roughly 3 days to do the doors for you. Without paint of course.... As far as price goes, I'll do it for $500 (total). Let me know what you want to do.....

seeing as how i only want one door done does that mean it will only take 1.5 - 2 days? or is it 3days for the one, and 500 for one? what month are you leaving? my car is off the road right now until aug. so i would have to have it trailered up there, unless you will still be here after that. or you could just swing down here to the island this way when you drive back you can say you drove from coast to coast<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0>

Sorry dude, I'm out of this place in Sept. So chances are there's no way I'll have time to swing down in August to do the work for ya. If you're only looking to do one door, I could probably have it done in 1.5 to 2 days. I don't like doing single doors on other peoples cars. I would do it on my own, but I would prefer to do both doors on other people's cars. If you decide to have it trailerd up, then let me know and I'll give you directions to my shop. One thing though, if you don't like getting your hands dirty, then don't come up. When I do things for people, I have them help and I show them how to do it for themselves. It's better to pass on the knowledge than to keep it to all of one self. <img src=/images/forums/snitz/wink.gif width=15 height=15 border=0> <img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>

you can also check with any hotrod/classic type mucel car shop, some of them will do it cause they get a kick out of seeing old school stuff done to new cars.

are suicide doors where they take out the handles and you need a controller to get into the car?

Suicide doors are when the hinges are where the door normally opens, so it opens the other way, the thing u need a remote to open your door is when you shave the handles
