OK, I have decided to get vertical doors on my Tc, but before I spend the money, I was wondering if I could get some advice on them from people that have/have had them. Please, leave the ricer/queer comments outta this, I think they are awesome and could care less about any one else's opinion lol.
I love mine. I got the JT BONN kit. Yes, you do have to worry about alignment or you can slam the door into the jam, hear wind, yada yada. I just took mine to a body shop and had them install it. But yes, the doors limit the distance you can get in and out of the car, roughly about a 2 foot gap. Any questions you have about them, let me know! I'll be glad to take pics of he hendges, anything you need, I'll take pics and show you! And yeah, it's a HUGE headturner... At times, a pain in the ****, but well worth it!
Also, you GET what you PAY for. In other words, spend the extra money.
*Cough* ricer/queer*Cough* Haha just kidding, referencing your first post. One thing that i hear, is that the doors can't handle the weight very well and will start to bend the door. You have to get a really good kit with a big enough mount to evenly distribute the weight so the doors don't crimp. I don't have a kit so i don't know this to be true for a fact, i have just heard it before

The clock of life is wound but once,
And no man has the power
To tell just when the hands will stop
At late or early hour.
Now is the only time you own.
Live, love, toil with a will.
Place no faith in time.
For the clock may soon be still.

Yes, they all wabble, but to a certain point. You got to remember, these doors go out, then go up. There is that certain small point of play it's going to have due to that. But it's not a drastic wabble though. I personally would not recommend driving with them up, nor leaving them up on a terribly windy day. I imagine THAT could damage the doors/henges.
When I was looking at them I read alot and researched which one I would get, however I didn't go through with it for various concerns and money was a factor..but Id go with JT or VDI and you would probally be very happy.
yeah that would be cool im trying to save up for them....but i also want alot of other stuff. i want seat covers, good sound system, neon, and possibly lowered and verticals.....so my total price is high...lol
