If you are buying an off the shelf suicide door kit to suicide the rear doors on an xB, you are going about it the wrong way. Sure, you can probably make it work, but you are going to spend so much time customizing and fabricating you might as well fabricate the hinges yourself. You'll be better off in the long run that way anyway.

Still a very big bill if you aren't doing it yourself. If you can do the labor yourself you are talking less than a couple hundred dollars in materials.

Yup suicide doors invloves alot of fabrication regardless of whether some universal suicide hinges are purchased. It invloves a lot of structural welding and also repainting at least the doors and 1/4 panels inside and out.

Lambos are easier especially with a bolt in kit made specifically for the vehicle. In this case the install is not particularly expensive just the cost of the hinges plus a few hours labor per side. Here is a link I found for at least 1 available kit http://www.body-kitz.com/enter.html?lmd=39066.565278 there are I bet others as well. They all seem to be in the $1000-2000 range.

woot, yep i am starting them as of today, i have been measuring for about 3 days. the reason why i am doing them? 1)cus i am at a school that does just custom hot rod mods. WYOTECH. 2)with doing them here i am saving a crap load of money. here is the add up, suicide doors.com hinges and bear claws 400, cost of metal dealer price 50 , autoloc's auto deadbolt kit(make sure they cant open when it is in drive) 100 , and autoloc door poppers 200

that is pretty much what i am spending, 750 this does not include paint and wires for the door, with that price i will be shaving the door handles and the rear hatch.


tegan

i am making a video of every thing i do, and will post it up when i am done

They say it is bolt on. I have no idea whether it actually is or not. It is simply an example I found of a price and a possible availability. Vertical doors I have been told makes good hinge kits. They list a TC kit but not one for the xB:/. If Vertical Doors was an option, from what I have seen and heard from owners of their hinges, is what I would likely buy if I was going to do this conversion.

I want to make my back doors suicide. And I was wanting to know if there is a lot of cutting and patching involved in it. And what's the best site for me to go to and get the parts from. Thanx

LOTs of cutting and adding in metal to do suicides.....i was gonna do it..then decided to hold off on that project. itll cost alot of $$$ if you dont do it, and lots of time if you do it yourself, good hinges themselves i think are $300 a peice.
