Lamborghini/Scissor Doors

Just out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen a Capri with Lambo doors? It should be possible, as far as I know. Is there any reason that a Capri shouldn't have Lambo doors?

I also want to do doors.  I got some information from decah (the best door kit on the market)  If we can get 10 people to pay 1G each, they will design to fit specifically to the Capri.

The Decah doors will flip either up or out like normal.

if and when i have a grand....aslong as that 1 grand gets me the doors... fitted and painted.. everything... i'd do it....

but... why stop at the doors... euro-style the way the hood opens, and get a new window-opening thing, like darqeyes's hydraulic system

I know for ZX2s, the best way to do it is to just get a Civic kit, apparently it fits really well. It might be possible to do this with the Capri, also. Someone should do a little research.

I wonder what it would cost to put Lambo doors on the car?  I think they would look good on a Capri.  

Does anyone have a picture of a Capri w/doors?  

Now this is not a general question.

I would like people to call someone in their area who does this stuff, and get a price, then let me know.  I want to see if I can afford to do it for next years gathering.  

Maybe then get a source who could do it in the area, and maybe have them put on a demonstration of how to do it, and if the process is not too involved, do a couple cars that day.  For a price of course, but if we get costs, it would help us to negotiate a good price, and make it worth their while.  Or for those intreped folks, maybe they can add the doors and just follow along with him with the body guy there to assist and teach.  

Just some thoughts.  

I would like to get prices as soon as possible.  Not someones idea of what it might cost.  Actual numbers.

No prob Yuri, if you can afford the other doors, then by all means lets discuss them.  

 I was trying to be serious for a moment.  Very seriously thinking lambo doors, and am curious if anybody else has.  Or has priced them.

Well I can say this - it really isnt a "one day" mod - usually stuff has to be cut/welded, your wiring has to be relocated/extended...

There are "universal" kits available, I wonder what it would take to install them

there's also a simple(r) modification, suicide doors. I left gullwings out of the list, no matter how good they look on a time machine, they just wont work on a capri

I bought some hinges.  DAMN ARE THEY HEAVY.  I think they weigh more than the door.  I will be taking it to a local body shop within a few days just to see if it can be done.  there is not alot of room.  And the hinge is large.
