making doors on a 27 Roadster glass body

Has anyone opened the doors on a glass body 27 roadster that doesn't have opening doors ? is it possible to cut the doors on a glass body that has molded doors and fabricate inner panels. Do you need to fabricate inner structural pieces, install hinges and door handles, striker plates, etc. I know you might be saying why didn't you just buy a body that had doors and a trunk? Well, honestly, it never occurred to me, but it is a little difficult to get in.

Speedway makes a kit for their late model buckets, passenger side only. If you have an older or different manufacturer body you can call them for their older kits.

Thanks for the pics. Can you give me an idea how you did it ? I've done some fiberglass on one of the corvettes I've owned, but nothing like that.

Thanks, I'll check that out. I don't remember seeing that in their catalogue.

Thanks brading. I tried to message you my email but the forum says I don't have permission or I'm not logged in. I know that I am logged in, so I guess I don't have permission. LOL.

We don't have any permissions thing for email contact, maybe yours or his profile settings are set to not allow email.

Or maybe it's a Tapatalk thing?
