Well, the hinges are too large for the Capri.  Soooo, I have a set of universal lambo door hinges for sale.

Any update on this? I've been designing my own hinges in CAD, but still have to run FEA's and find a shop to cut the metal...

Maybe a source for Capri Lambo doors:

http://www.xtreme-doors.com/

They say they will make a custom design for any car in any quantity.

I am friends with the owner of a shop that does lambo doors in my area and we are looking into doing lambo doors on my capri. I'll have to let you know what I find out from him when I go get my truck back (needed body work) and drop off my capri.

TimmyGT-
Welcome to the group!! You'll find the vast majority of the people here very helpful, and friendly!  Any questions you may have, feel free to ask! I, for one, am interested in the progress of your 93 XR2 restoration!!
Couple of questions for you-how much did the engine from Jasper run you, and is it stock, or is it beefed up?
I would also be interested in the Lambo doors, as I am sure a couple other people on here would be. The Twin cities aren't all that far from me, and if the price was right...........    
Also (just curious) how did you hear about TeamCapri??

the engine is just a stock Mazda engine from jasper. I will do a performance rebuild on it after the car is completely restored. other then that I am just going to do some light modding to make it as fast as it looks! I am not 100% sure how much the engine cost because my parents flipped the bill for me as my dad was the one who blew up the engine by driving it when it overheated on him! I think it was around $2k with getting it installed. sadly I didn't know about this site or I would have done it myself as I have with my mustang.

the company that I will be working with is called Never Satisfied Customs, my friend is the owner and has already done a few other jobs for my family. he will also be the one helping me with the headlight conversion kit that I am going to try and make.

I found out about the sites when I was looking on cardomain for some ideas on what to do with my Capri. I found robs (I think he is zxtuner) Capri and he had a reference to this site from his page.

keep an eye on my cardomain page as I will try to keep it up to date with the mods that I do and the whole restoration project!

Oh man, my third nipple just got hard hearing that there is a place within a couple hundred miles that will have some experience with Lambo doors, headlight modification and whatever else that my come down the pike.  If these things come to fruition, I'll be keeping my toy.

well I think I am dropping off the Capri this week to have him go over it with me and start the restoration project. I am just waiting for him to finish my F150 that needed a little body work.

so after looking into it and the amount of modifications needed and the weight that will be added to install lambos I am going to put them on my 97' Tbird instead (show car so I don't car about the weight as I am riding 20"s). the capri would look good with them but it just doesn't work for this type of car.

things kinda came to a stop with modding the capri because I stepped up and took over my dad's 61' fairlane restoration as he has had this thing for 8+ years and he hadn't done a thing to it.
