My street is a half mile long, and is a dead end, with only 5 houses on it, so folks taking their kidlets around don't come up my street. Other streets go through or have end-connectors so those houses get visited.
Same here, 2 1/2 acre lots and most driveways are well over 100 ft long. No street lights either. Very few kids, if any.

They go one block over where there are more people handing out candy first, then by the time they come up our street they just walk past. Probably too tired to go up to one more door.
Its because the words out :Brians gives out healthy stuff like apples,Kids want candy and not the crap candy corn either,they want the good stuff like snickers bars ....we tried everything to keep the little teenage mutants away nothing worked until we stsrted giving out apples...Now we get one or two and I get to keep the whole bag of snickers for myself...

according to the makers of these suicide doors it's a "bolt on" part...besides having to cut into the upper apron. Two things to consider when doing these things... you need more harness room to swing the wires around the arm and out of the way and you have to know whether or not it's a true "bolt in". Doing a little research on the particular car and hinges are important before throwing out any numbers, but it's ok, the techs will deal with the horrible managerial decisions.

Those "kits" are hilarous! It's like a gallon of paint and hardener is a paint "Kit". Yep, all you need is someone to apply it that knows what they are doing! LOL

The paint "kits" can be a cheap option, if the person buying it is experienced. They're very misleading for the average new guy who wants to try his hand at shooting a car.
I prefer to go to my local supplier and pay a little more to get supplies and their expertise in choosing what else I need.

Aww that painting stuff is easy. All you got to do is remember two things. Long smooth strokes and shake the can until you hear the marble rattling!

Had to cut out a huge chunk out of the apron for these hinges and it's right at the joint where it meets the a-pillar. Butchery. You can either make it stronger or weaker, it's not gonna ever be the same. Rather make it stronger, but mostly rather send these junk hinges back and tell them they're idiots.

What kind of car Henry? The funny part is you will have one side done in 40 hours and the other side in 10.

Same song second verse. Tonight I cut out the other side of the B Pillar mounts. Overall this is the rustiest side of the car and I notice this quarter is getting a little springy when you close the door. The RH side is amazingly solid still.

BTW, I ordered a box of 3 inch cut off wheels from Amazon.com and they came today. They were 58 cents a piece and came in a plastic tray. They are made in the USA and I cut this brace out with about 1/2 of a disc. I am cautiously optimistic they were a very good buy.
