Lambo Door ?'s Answered

Ok, hate to sound like a douche but I am tired of the questions about the lambos haha so I figured I would put up some info.

The kit I got you probably won't find, I am amazed I got it. I purchased it from a company or individual or whatever for a nice price. I have no idea if they are still around or what.

Install, its not for the beginner or faint of heart. You have to remove front bumper, fenders and all that. You than have to take off the stock door hinges and things. Than you have to get the kit and put it on but not tighten or weld, you have to spend alot of time aligning and getting it right so the doors close with ease. The kit I got had to be modified alittle cause it do not fit flush which meant gaps between the door and the car which would be result in massive wind noise and all that. Also have to take the door panels off and do some rearranging of the wires and such, in some cases you have to cut and splice to make the wires longer.

After we got all the aligning and stuff straight it was time to cut the fenders and cut the fender well(black guard) you can start to put the car back together. It took almost 10hrs total to do, 2 nights, shops can do it in shorter times I am sure but you pay alot. It would have cost me more than the kit did to have it installed, so I got the courage and with the help from my dad we figured it out.

The doors do not open all the way, I can get in and out not too bad since I am of the small stature but bigger people well have to open and lift them up all the time. They are lifted by hand and some muscle, maybe in the future I well see about having them mechanically able to raise themselves but that is alot of money. Whole reason i did it was the price I payed. Usually lambo kits are sold for over $800. And yea, you get what you pay for, but I enjoy my kit, it turns heads whenever I got out and decide to raise 'em up.

Do I recommend it, eh, not really. If I had to pay normal prices I would of said no myself and used that money for better mods.

^Best way if you have no idea or anyone who is mechanically inclined enough. Forgot, definitely a two person job. One to hold door on and the other to do the work and all that.

yea they are not cheap, like I said, if I had not gotten them for under $500 I would of said nah. The only thing I want to spend over a grand on anytime soon is either a killer system and tv setup or a TVS supercharger.
