Prelude doors

I don't know why, but for some reason I really like the look of those types of doors that that don't have the full frame around the windows. You know like the Porsche doors.






It would be really cool as a custom mod for a Prelude.

Re: Prelude doors

your talking about a lot of fabrication work there... a professional job needed, and not the best design ever.... might as well look into lambo, suicide, or butterfly door kits if your gonna do something like that... ( and i mean instead of deleting the top portion of the door frame)

Re: Prelude doors

The problem with no frames is it's much easier to break into the vehicle, not that it matters anyways because if they're going to break in they're going to break in but I'm not for helping out thieves by making anything easier.

Re: Prelude doors

I don't know I just think those types of doors look cool. Lambo/scissor doors look a bit douchy on cars that aren't a Lambo. Everything is possible, but it would be quite expensive to do something like this. What are those types of doors called?

Re: Prelude doors

One thing you need to think about is the upper portion is part of the track. So you have to custom fab a new track and stopper as well as some way to keep a seal from allowing the elements to the inside this morning.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.

rx-8's are complete garbage. they require regular dealership maintenance. plus none of those engines have lasted past 90k miles

OP, if you want doors like that, get a WRX
