It won't be cheap to do the conversion. First, the doors have to come off, then the old hinges are either removed or relocated to the new kit...in any case, there will be welding and bodywork to do there. THEN, you still have the wiring umbilicals to worry about...these will need to be extended a little bit if there is not enough service loop. And if it isn't done right, the doors could leak, and make that god awful hissing noise when at highway speeds. In other words, it ain't worth doing unless you make this nothing more than a showcar that will be garaged. But to each their own...
