Re: suicide doors

Don't.

Just... don't.


1) Your wiring harness for the door will have to be changed.

2) you're probably going to shake the bejesus out of the side mirrors, as well as bash them off anything within 4 feet of the door.

3) door latch and lock mechanisms will all have to be changed.

4) hinges will have to be put into the b pillar, which most likely won't support the weight of an open door for long (whats the point in doing ricey doors if you dont leave them open to show off?) The stock doors bolt to the cowl which is designed for the weight.

5) with the window frame and mirror on the door, itll look even more like ****.

6) think resale value/exit strategy.


Don't be that guy, who takes what was (and can still be) a really nice car, and make it lame and ricey. There will be no props or accolades. Just bitter scorn and alienation.

Re: suicide doors

Wings and camber are also lame.

Don't do any of that stuff.

That crap takes zero talent. Anyone can buy something in a kit, and stick it on. Thats kiddie ****.

These days, if you want to have a unique car, you have to put real time and effort into it. You have to put yourself into it. Build it, restore it, restomod it. Improve on what the car was designed to be. You don't always have to buy stuff either. Clean it up, fabricate something unique if you have the skills. That is what turns the heads.

Check out some of the build threads on the forums here. There are some stunning projects in the works.

Re: suicide doors

if you want unique do gullwing doors. no one ever goes wrong with gullwing doors and no ones probably ever done it on a prelude so no one car say anything cause youre the first.

The roof would surely be able to handle the weight of our heavy ass doors right?

How about something really cool like humvee-style lift off hinges? If it gets really hot just leave the doors at home.
