I agree that they'd LOOK KOOL James! Twisted Evil

From the Kits I've seen they look like a fairly straight forward fit up and suited for your Van.

I look forward to seeing how you go.

I've got suicide doors on my HT and scissor doors on my VY.
Both were difficult and a lot more work than first imagined. Of course if it was "easy" they would be everywhere.

My Son bought some Hinges for his Honda from The States.

He thought it was going to take a couple of hours to do on a week night.

Needless to say it took a lot more than that and sorted out a lot of bugs.

Phoenix has a Custom Built Radiator Support among many other things.

Summer Magic 2 uses relocated, original Bonnet Hinges on his.

looking at putting the catch in the middle.. I am not overly fussed. It will have bonnet pins anyways but will look at it next week once i get the headlight buckets done and get the guards removed one last time to install the inner guards before finally putting the nose back on and starting to join it all together hopefully.............. in regards to a how to i can put some close up pics on next week with a how i did it sorta, lol.......

Excellent Thanks Chad.

I was just looking at Summer Magic 2. I don't think he has a Catch. Might rely on the Gas Struts over centering to hold it closed.
