Lambo doors are sometimes called Vertical Doors or Scissor Doors as we typically refer to them, but in the end, the basic design and function is the same. Basically, a Vertical Door opens by swinging horizontally and then lifting vertically into the air to mimic the look of a Lamborghini. The origin of the name is pretty obvious, your doors are literally vertical in the air when open!
Here’s what we’re referring to:
There are two styles of Vertical Doors, a weld on hinge and a bolt on hinge; b0th will serve the same function, but the installation process is different.
With the Scissor Doors Inc brand of bolt on Vertical Door Hinges, each hinge is custom built to fit into the existing hinge mounts on your vehicle. The new vertical door hinge will literally bolt into place of your factory door hinges. A direct bolt on Vertical Door hinge is typically easier to install and has the added option of being reversible, which makes it safe for a leased vehicle! Another bonus to choosing the bolt on vertical doors is that if you’re handy, you can do the installation in your home garage. All you will need to install bolt on vertical doors is regular, everyday hand tools.
The weld on Vertical Door Hinges are a great option for customers with hard to fit or rare vehicles who aren’t interested in having custom bolt on hinges made for their vehicle. Weld on Vertical Door Kits are also a better choice for older vehicles that came with the factory door hinges welded on rather than bolted on. This eliminates the need to drill new mounting points and makes the installers job easier. The only down side to a weld on Vertical Door Kit is that most people will require a body shop to do the installation since an experienced welder is required.
Most people only think about modifying their front doors when they’re considering vertical doors, but you can actually convert your rear doors to Vertical Lambo Doors as well! Although most applications are weld on only, we do offer a few select styles of Rear Vertical Doors in a bolt on application.
Not only do rear lambo door look great on cars with front lambo doors, but mixing and matching different types of door conversions, like Suicide Doors, Gull Wing Doors, Butterfly Doors, makes for a real show-stopper!
Now, just to make things even more confusing, we also offer Suicide Vertical Doors that can be installed on two or four door vehicles. The Suicide Vertical Lambo Door is a weld on hinge kit that mounts on the opposite side of the door from the factory hinge (the side where the door handle is) but lifts up vertically like a lambo door does. Sounds crazy right, well it is, but the result is pretty awesome!
So basically, call them Vertical Doors, Lambo Doors, or Scissor Doors, the end result is a still the same….. a kick ass ride!
