Might be easier and cheaper to create suicide doors for the escorts... for those who don't know what a suicide door is.....check out the Hot Rod industry....you'll see plenty of them...it's not very hard to do....but i guess it wouldn't be that easy on an escort....

SDO NDO

SDO= Suicide door opening (on those, the rotating part is on the back of door)
NDO= Normal door opening ( on those, the rotatiing part is on the frond of the door)

drawings dont work well on this forum ;)

all suicide doors are.. the open the opposite way of normal doors.

so if ur flying down the highway.. and someone decideds, there door isnt shut.. and tries to slam it shut again... ur door goes flying off into the abyss of traffic..

i personally dunno why there called suicide.. im sure they'd cause more homocides than anything!

Think what happens when you are getting out of your car while you are parallel parked and a car clips your door?

Now think what will happen if the door opens the other way....you get severed in half! :?

Suicide doors are more expensive and harder to do than lambo doors. the electricail lambo doors are more a pain to ajust when it get miss alligned. to get the stander lambo doors and installed is around 2,100 $ and easier to ajust your self. The that is different in each kit is the hole pattern on the hinges but you can modifi it your self> 8O

Umm...I don't know about you guys, but I would NEVER buy a universal lambo door hinge kit....ever.

And Ive read that they call em suicide doors because of how dangerous they are, you would have to be suicidal to drive them.

Hmmm ok, so it worked for you...cool. I only said that because I figured it took a lot of modification...am I right? I don't know, I guess im just all go, no show, and its way too expensive and too much of a hassle for me to do, but Im very glad you got it to work and it looks really cool.

The hinges actually work pretty good on the escort's. Because our fenders have a curve and not flat so the new decah kit can open either way normal or up. Yes the universal kit is the way to go for our car you have to drill the holes to match. BTW there is more to it than just that. Just giving a general idea
