This Lambo door installation is considered one of the more time consuming and complex. You will have to cut a section of the frame of the vehicle to allow space for the hinges to sit flush against the car. You will also have to trim most of the excess fender flair to allow free movement of the hinge ad you lift the door.
The key, important thing to know about installing doors on this specific vehicle is that you will have to cut the frame of the car, fender and extend the wires by 3 inches to both doors.
Fender removal takes about 20-30 min on each side. One bold is removed from behind the fender and two behind the front fender. Two dummy nuts hold the side skirts on at the front bottom of the fenders. There are about 14 various nuts and bolts that have to be removed from each fender to free and remove it.
Once you have removed the fender, you will remove the factory hinges as well as discard the one bolt fender bracket that will not be used. Will will have to cut and remove about 6 inches of the frame of the car that extends behind the fender. This is time-consuming due to the multiple layers of sheet metal stacked on top of each other, (7 to be exact)
Between cutting the frame and extending the wires, you are looking at about 5+ hours of labor.
Be sure to not bump the bolts coming from the door side that attach the hinge to the door. You will add a lot of time and headache having to remove the whole door and paneling because at this point, you have already removed the factory hinges and taped the door up so you would then have to remove the whole door from the car and that is not fun nor easy and a pain when it comes to alignment.
Then once you have made all your adjustments to the doors, you can reassemble the vehicle!
