Beetle Suicide Doors

Post by sdudum » Fri Sep 13, 2019 10:20 pm

Greetings team, I need to find somebody who can do suicide doors using the stock hinges on a beetle. I want this look on my car and frankly couldn't care for the expensive invisible hinges.

is there somebody you could point me to who could do this conversion for me ?

regards

This is an example of what I want to do. I just need somebody who can understand and engineer this on my car.

In the old VW Treds magazines was how to do it

Easiest is to get the Bottom A pillar and fabricate it in the rear
