Lambo/Vertical Door question

I am going to get a set of Lambo/Vertical doors for my 2011 Synergy Green Camaro and have been doing a little research but would like some fellow Camaro owners opinons on this. I would like those of you that know about these to let me know what you think of the following distributors and why I should choose them or not choose them.

1. Vertical Door Inc
2. Scissor doors Inc
3. Dream Car Creations. who claim there is no need to remove fenders.

Thanks; Brian

I can't tell you about the others, but I have vertical doors inc hinges. They have been in great shape even after a year or so. They also come with a lifetime warranty which is nice.

I would recommend their products after seeing how good it turned out on mine.

Thanks ihaveacamaro, I have been leaning towards using that brand due to previous reads. I have also found them at www.andysautosport.com for 1299.99 and they also have a coupon for 250 off of that. I called VDI direct the other day and they said that they would match that price as well so I am looking to see where I can get them at the lowest price.

I can't recall exactly, but I know some of our local members have gone with Vertical Door Inc.

OP, 925 shipped is a pretty good deal too. I don't think any company will match that.

I got INSANELY lucky and found one for 550 shipped, but that was one in a million.

Since then, I have seen 750 up. But again in about 10 ads, the lowest was 750. The average tends to be around 1000 if it's a private seller, and about 1200 if ebay or online.

Good luck, VDI makes a good kit and I wholeheartedly recommend them

Awesome, post some pics when you're done.

Btw, you *most likely* will have to go in after 2-4 weeks to get it readjusted. It's just the hinges breaking in, and after one time, you shouldn't ever have to go back.

My door was slightly off after the first month of use. Got it readjusted. Over a year has passed and now no issues

I'd just use the same wax as you use on the rest of the car.

Just received my vertical door kits from VDI. Now I can not wait to get
Them installed. Taking them to my mechanic tomorrow for him to look
At them. He owns a frame off restoration company so I know he is capable
Of helping me to install these.
I'll post pics when complete.
Also my technostalgia sequential lighting is now installed.
Project coming along. Trifecta tune next maybe
