Remove the doors and hinges and the electrical wiring and connectors from the doors, which might involve a lot of labor or might not depending upon your technical expertise, tools, work tables, benches, etc.. Torque values for hinges with proper bits and torque wrench all likely needed. There are outfits in Forida, Texas, Arizona and California that are directly involved in the installation. Go to EikonMotorsports.com of Arizona (1-800-339-6544 and ask for Jessica, if you would like information from the same company that will be installing my vertical doors. Tim is one of the main installers at Eikon. Temecula in California Wine country also has a Vertical Doors location which is their own business. There are maps that show that there at now qualified installation sites all over the United states, so anyone who wants these, can get them done. Thanks, Alex

    How long did it take to do the update?
    Where did you have it done?
    $$$?
    Is the kit available for any DIYers?

    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

    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.

    This is a solution to us Guys who are getting older and less flexible.

    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. 👍👍👍
