Doors installed with welded GT Factory Diablo Lamborghini door System with 4 hydraulic lift cylinders.

You can see the advantages of welded Lanbo hinges; the doors can be lifted much higher and they are much more vertical to the body rather than tipping away from the windshield. With the doors lifting higher it is much easier to get in and out of the car. Do not buy cheap hinges, they will make you miserable. The welded hinges are a bit less expensive than the bolt-on’s but are more difficult to install. And unless you own a body shop, I highly recommend that you find a professional that has install several Lanbo doors. You should budget approximately $5,000.oo to just do the doors.

Thank you, my son and I ran a back roads road rally (more like a treasure hunt with 40 questions to answer) this weekend. One of the questions was “on this leg, what kind of fence is a 108”, my son saw a mailbox with 108 on it with a placard, invisible dog fence. A guy in the yard shouted at us “why are all of you antique and fancy cars stopping at my mailbox”?
