Lots of structural strengthening will eb needed so the doors won't sag after a while.

I hope this isn't an obvious question...but why are they called "suicide doors"?
Since the doors open with the door jam to the front they catch the air that is rushing by at speed. If going fast enough, this can cause the passenger holding the door to be pulled out if opened while the vehicle is moving.

We have a Two-Toned 300C limo sitting out front of my work with Lambo front doors and He wants me to Suicide the rears. I told him that it would be around 10K. We are going to order the hinges to see how much work it's going to be for strenghtening the quarters and such.

buddy of mine, tegan (goes by "wackblackxb", not sure he posts here anymore) did his own suicide doors while at autobody school.
said he would never do it again, even if he was getting paid. it was a hella lot of work to strengthen everything so the doors wouldnt sag when open.

only 2 pics i could find:





i believe he used the hinges from suicidedoors.com, but it isnt as easy as buying a kit and slapping it on. i think tegan said he had about 20-25 hours of work PER DOOR to get everything to work out.

good luck to anyone who attempts this. big bucks but baller as hell.
