    It would have been nice to get mine quicker, and I obviously can't speak to the time claims made by other companies or the quality of their work. That said, I'm extremely pleased with the work my installers did, and hope that everyone who installs the vertical doors is as happy with theirs as I am with mine. Best of luck with everyone's mod decisions! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

    Vertical Doors will install mine and I think they told me 6 hours to complete.

    Yeah, I got the preorder deal from Eikon Motors with home installation, they also claim only 1 day to install.

I purchased the kit directly from the manufacturer Vertical Doors Inc for 2K - not sure if that price is still available, I got the deal from them in late June. Took about 5 weeks from the order to manufacture and get the kit to me, seems like they do small batches at a time. You could purchase from the manufacturer and DIY and save the install $$$, but be sure you get the door lift adjustments right and insure that all the panels line up properly ( the nose and fenders need to be removed to access the door hinges). Alternately, the Eikon company can sell you the kit plus installation (their website states that they have installation shops around the country or can send an installer to your home). Also, I believe that Eikon may offer financing.

    I have to say that I was not a big fan of the vertical door mod, but after seeing the way your car looks (gaps etc) and the operation of the doors, you have me reconsidering. Thx for posting the pix and vids.

    Good luck with your mod. Not for me however since it rains in my area of the NE. Had a verticle door car and it is an annoying PIA when you get in and out in the rain.

    Interesting mod. Do you have any videos of the doors in action? How far do they first swing out is what I'm looking to see.

    Heartbeat congratulations sir, Yes when you have some time please post a video of your car. I Pre-Ordered the ZLR doors in June to get the discount which will include installations from the guys @ Vertical Doors. I can't wait to get my C8, but I am happy to receive it in 2021 now due to COVID, it's my hope that it will arrive in Jan or Feb. at the latest.

    Thanks! The C8 was a real draw before, the attention now is next level πŸ˜… On my way home from the shop I stopped to get gas and the mechanics emptied out and asked questions for 20 minutes. I stopped to grab some lunch back in NJ at my favorite chili dog place and the reactions were pretty funny.
    i enjoy talking with folks about the C8, and welcome folks to take pics when they ask, and I’ll allow well behaved little ones to sit in it so their parents can get a pic. Makes me feel like kind of an ambassador for our favorite car. Lots of smiles, and if I can give a bright spot in someone’s day it’s all well worth it πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜‰

Just a quick observation for anyone considering this mod, if you or your co-pilot/ better half have shoulder issues/ range of motion restrictions then this might not be the best mod for you πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸΌ
    Seriously Considering ... for hopefully this time Next Year πŸ˜‹
