i've got 350 bucks burning hell out of my pocket and i haven't done anything to my car in days!
my friend suggested i gullwing my doors but that's like a 2-year diy and prolly over 10 stacks to that
so anyone know how much to reverse my rear doors (like the mazda's) or anywhere with instructions?
i know it'll prolly be more than 350 but at least i'll know where to start
if not i guess it's gonna be new paint (currently candy blue)

the problem w/ BIG diy projects is that you usually need another car to drive while you're doing it, and if you htink it'll take 2yrs, you've got a problem then....

and sorry....but how do you expect to get a new paintjob for $350?!?

Dude you can do the vertical lift without having to do any welding, all you have to do is replace the stock hinges with a new set that open out and then up.

I was talking to Nuke Da Bomb and i was helping him look at lambo doors. And after looking at a few other forums, they said its not worth it at all for everyday driving. They are really heavy to lift.

2. Paint Jobs should cost thousands. Anything under 1000 will be cheap and done badly. The only one you could get is Maaco which SUX.

Give us what mods you have currently and we can give you some ideas on what your next mod should be for 350 bucks.

oh your talking sucide doors?.... like with the OG cars form the 20's and 30's?

the door opens backwards having the inside of the door face the front of the car instead of the back?

There are kits for those too, you will have to modify one to fit your ride... your best bet is to look in the Hot Rodder and Custom Rodder magazines they have them for sell in there all the time... basically any car mag that is about hot rodding classic cars you will be able to find them in it.

I believe he wants information on suiciding the REAR doors, so it will open like the 3rd door on the RX-8 (not sure if the RX-8 has 1 or 2 rear doors)
