Swing up, sweet door

Swing up, sweet door

As evidenced by all the cars sporting them at SEMA this week, Lambo door hinges are all the rage amongst car modifiers. About a quarter of the show cars I saw there had these door mod kits, from trucks to sports cars. Originally seen on Lamborghinis, the doors come out slightly, then lift up. The one seen in the picture here are from GT Factory, which also makes a Gull Wing conversion kit. I've found it's too easy to knock your head on the edge of the door, but they do keep you from slamming your door into other cars or walls in parking lots. However, they don't keep other people from knocking their doors into your paint job.
