      The install took 4 days. Got it done at Professional's Choice in West Babylon, Long Island, installation was $2800. 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'm a bit confused about why it took your installer 4 days install time because the manufacturer of these doors state that the install only takes 1 day.

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

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

            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! 👍👍👍

              Heartbeat , I have to admit I am waiting for additional videos from you. (Like a nice distance shot). Have someone take a video of you exiting and entering the car would be great.

                Ok, I can get that done. Stay tuned, I won't be able to do this until Sunday or Monday at the earliest - I'm currently away from my car, I'll be wrapped up with work until the weekend is over. 👍👍👍

                    They look awesome. Additional videos displaying their functionality getting in and out would be much appreciated.

                              NO Offense ... really, but what is Award is me, 6’2” and 59 YO getting into my Vette in a Two Car Garage

                              ... and many times it hurts trying to not ding your doors while getting into the car.

                                I think it looks cool. Clearly, you had a good installation. It's not the door option for everyone, but that's ok. It's your car, so enjoy it! I bet it draws a crowd every time you get in and out
