Hi all,
This is my first post, i have been watching for a while but decided it was time to speak up. I have a 62 chrysler valiant ( australian ) and i want to suicide the rear doors.

The only problem is that where the hinges would mount is a curved section, ie it follows the curve of the wheel tub.

Is it possible to suicide these doors and if so how do i go about it??

Thanks
Richard

The wheel tub is pretty much flush with the door jam, so there is no room to fit a set up like
dr chop, even if it was curved, unless you put it inside the wheel tub. I am thinking about making it a two door with suicide doors, as this would probably be easier. I don't know if it would suit the body style but. I am putting the car on air bags and will hopefully run 20 inch wheels.

This is a link to a pic of the car(not mine):
