lambo doors
Can someone give me an estimate of how hard it is to instal the lambo doors. If not how much do you think it might cost for a professional job. thanks

imo, it shouldn't be that hard. if you get the decah modified hinges (from carexcess or springmans) it's just a bolt-on. but you will probably have to roll the fenders. phatcellygt has the decah vdc modified by carexcess and jamey has the vdc modified by springmans

for more info on the decah vdc modified by carexcess, you can try to get in touch with phatcellygt (he is not currently accepting pm's though)

for more info on the decah vdc modified by springsmans, you can send jamey a pm

leaking and whistling wind have to do with the weather stripping, not the doors. sure the doors could play around with the weatherstripping...but all you have to do is glue it on more sturdily (toyotas factory weather stripping job is basically just stick-on--you can peel it off and put it back on at will)

it is too good to be true...they are probably autoloc hinges and they SUCK. VDC should cost you anywhere from 1500 to 1900...Install should be NO MORE than 500. I charge 300 to install Carexcess hinges cause they are so easy to do.

***why in the hell can't I recieve PM's? It says I can in my options...:(

installation prices varie,many and i mean MANY shops try to screw you over ,like if they make you pay for 8 hours of labor, they might have only worked for like 4 hours so its pretty much smarter to do it yourself as long as your not mechanicaly challenged
