    Can Am type door hinges

    I am working on an Diablo SV and would like to install Can Am type hinges on the doors. So far the only ones that I can locate are for the MB Mclaren and the Ferrari Enzo. Unfortunately they are both $$$$$$. Has anyone else run across something that would work, (even with some minor mods), or that they have designed/built? To make it clear as to what I am trying to achieve here, I want the doors to "butterfly" up & out at 45 deg instead of "scissoring" up.

    That style is refered to as "gulwing". They are hinged on the roof. They werealso used on the Briklin, Cimbria and MB 300 (the cool older ones). What I am looking for is like the Fer. enzo. Thanks for the try though.

    Yes, that's right 'Gullwing'.... When you had stated 'butterfly' my brain blanked at the word Gullwing!
    I would entertain some of the 'sissor door hinge' companies and see what they might suggest. Have an 'open' wallet though

    look in any sport compact magazine. there is a company that makes suiside door kits,lambo door kits, and the enzo style that you are looking for. its the same place that sells flame thrower kits and hide away license plate kits.i cant remember the name but they are always in several magazines
