Door Hinge info

Pawty PePoz!! Well im wanting to make my own suicide door hinges like on suicidedoors.com . I think if I can take measurements cut some square metal bars to the size I want. Then get a small sheet of 1/4 inch steel. Cut it to the size I need. THen measure the 1/4 inch steel and find were I need to bend it put it in a vice heat it up and bend it till I get the right angel. I know it will be tricky to get it right but im up to it.

The question I have is how do I actually make the hinge portion? Anyone wanna share thoughts and help me out please. Maybe I can cut some hinges off of a different car and weld them on mine. I don't know please help Thanks, Chris

Yea lol I think I studied that a million times. I need a hinge that will actually push the door out as it opens. Im also planning on making it a suicide lambo door. So I need to door to come out and go up and fold toward the roof of the car. I aint fixin on paying close to 400 for hinges when I can make my own for less then half. I guess I might just have to experiment a little.
