How to choose what type of door conversion to install on your vehicle

Sometimes car enthusiasts know exactly what they want to do to their vehicle, and sometimes it’s more of a process that happens overtime. Like any modification there are pros and cons to consider when deciding what type of door conversion to install on your vehicle.

Suicide Doors tend to be a popular modification with older, classic cars and trucks as they lend well to the era. However, many new car manufacturers are reintroducing the Suicide Door hinge to current production models so even new body style vehicles can be well suited to the subtle look of a Suicide Door Hinge kit. Suicide Doors can be installed on two or four door cars and are often chosen as a rear door modification when installing another style of hinge on your front doors.


Lambo Door Kits are modeled after the Lamborghini, and are designed to allow your doors to lift vertically in the air.  Originally the lambo doors were installed on sports cars, however any vehicle can be modified to have Lambo Door Hinges. Because the Scissor Door Lambo Door hinges can be adjusted to open to different angles or degrees, they can be tailored to suit the body lines of your vehicle. More boxy, square vehicles (like SUV’s, muscle cars and trucks) look best with a more perpendicular 90 degree opening.  Curvy, sporty vehicles (coupes, convertibles and low profile trucks) tend to look better with a slightly lower degree of opening, mimicking the actual Lamborghini.

Gull Wing Doors are probably the least common type of door modification as they require the most work to install, however this also makes them more popular among car owners who really want to stand out in a crowd. Gull Wing Doors can be mounted in several locations to give you a different look when the doors are open. The traditional mounting point is along the roof line of the vehicle; however vehicles without window frames can install their Gull Wing hinges along the windshield pillar to give a slightly angled Gull Wing look.


Regardless of what style of door modification you chose, they most important thing to consider is quality! Scissor Doors Inc backs up all of its conversions with a Life Time Warranty and stands behind their products and customer service.
