Anyone have Lambo Doors? Issues, Concerns?

I know the post "Lambo Door, No Lambo" has been done a few times. People are all gonna have their own opinions. I have a few questions for anyone who has these Lambo hinges.

1. Are they strong? Do they seem strong enough while the door is up or feel flimsy?

2. I know they swing out, then up. Can they be shut incorrectly on accident? Like possibly swinging in before down, causing damage to car or hinge?

3. When sitting in car is it easy enough to reach handle to close the door?

4. Do OEM door handles hold up ok to the pulling up and down of door?

Im sure I have more. Please feel free to voice any other concerns, comments or experiences with the use and quality of these hinges, good or bad. Not wether YOU like them or not. Thank You

my only concern would be if anyone has these and is a daily driver. How long the hydrolic will last before it starts wearing off and need to be replaced...

also, are there any kits out there that allow you to open the door normally, and then veritcal if you wanted.

Yes most kits open normally also. Im not sure if they open completely normally but enough to get in and out of without opening vertical.

I have seen this question many times before so I took some pics to help with the answer.

Here is the door at its max opening:





It is about 23" wide so if you can't fit thru that they you'll have to lift the door.



I have had the Vertical Door kit since last Memorial day and my car is a daily driver with more than 35K miles. I average at least 20+ shows a year (with the doors open) and they are still good as new.

Hope this helps.

hello bro, did my door last august.
doors are holding up, zero problems, holding alignment perfect. i have them up every week for weekly meets, i have had them up in windy conditions, they move but hold very well, nothing worn at this point. you will not lift them to get in or out. you can lift them when you are seated in the car, but it will take good arm strength to pull them down. i always pull them down before i get in. the door really cannot be closed when they are up because of built in stops on the doors. once down they need to be closed straight and not putting pressure down on the handles. not a big issue as everyone that gets in and out know this, so no problems there.

Hello bro, the door kit is from vertical doors inc. The hood kit is from revolution styles. Talk to dean or Tommy at revolution. I'm on the road now. Google them. Thx

when you are at a car show do you just turn off the dome light or un hook the door button that tells the car the door is ajar? or just leave it alone?

@ciscobee did you use vertical doors inc also?
