Gull-Wing Door Upgrade

Does anyone have an idea how much it would cost to do a Mod like this if possible on our Cars?

I think it'd be freakin sweet!

I can tell you that it aint cheep, they have to cut, grind and paint the car to do it in many cases, I know on some cars its anywhere from 1500 to 4000. every one I have seen it's also a MF to get out of.

i think the heading should not call that chop an "upgrade" since that is an opinion. i think "modification" would be more like it.

i dont think adding weight to the car in order to look kewl getting in and out (if the body is limber enough to not look like a fool) is in upgrade. now boosting the power while keeing driveability and increasing mpg, that is an upgrade.

stripes, paint, $5 superchargers are all modifications.

cags eliminator, that is an upgrade.

LOL. You are right I should have wrote Mod.

And the weight can't be that much of a factor, and If I was really concerned about weight I would strip the car down.

I saw this done to a new 350z - a dealership in St Louis had it sitting out front. I didn't have my camera or I would have taken a pic of it. It looked sweet. I should have stopped to see how much they added to the price of the car for it.

Looks like piss on a GTO.

And by the way... they're "lambo doors" not gullwing. Gullwing doors might actually look good (but would probably still come out rice).
