Lambo door rods for car shows and parades - Buy them here.
« on: January 30, 2011, 08:16:53 PM »
For those of you who have purchased VDI Hinges from Dave @ DDM Works or if you have custom door hinges that open as lambo doors, then you will want a set of these.

I originally developed these based off a simple design that I saw in the 2nd Nationals.  It was a simple design as it didn't lock into the latch or door.  After a several hours of bending and adding more bends and then starting over etc...  I came up with a design that locks in and won't move.

If you went to the Nationals in Canton OH and saw Go-N Def's car.  The rods were installed on his car.

The rods will be on sale for $50.00 plus shipping

Info on what you're getting:

    * There are no moving parts to the rods.
    * Two rods (one for each side)
    * Locks in to the latch and once latched into the door, they cannot be moved until released by pulling the door handle.
    * Latching into the door turns off the inside mirror lights.
    * Can be used in parades with the doors up (did this at the DC St Pattricks day parade)
    * Great for car shows - keeps people out of your car.
    * Ends are dipped in black tool plastic gel
    * Rods are painted red (except dipped ends)
    * Labeled for which side
    * Instructions for installation and removal


When placing an order, I ship 3 days after receipt of order (it takes a few days to make these)

If your friends (non Kappa) have lambo doors and would like a set.  Contact me via PM.
I'll need a few measurements so I can build a pair for them.

Joe, the pictures here are the un-dipped and non-painted? Nice job! With all the work to put that together, for $50 for a pair of them it's a steal.
Just trying to do my part...

Thanks for posting the pic.

Look great!   Anyone in the North Texas area have VDI hinges installed?  I'd really like to see them in person - although I like the look, the Mrs is adamant against them.    If I could see them in person, it might help win the argument!

Be careful with the plastic ends. They're highly flammable whilst drying!

Joe, I didn't send a PM because I already have a set, but I will PM you later to let you know that I already have a set.  I will post on this thread after I have sent the PM to let you know I sent it because you obviously don't have any idea that you have PMs in your PM box when your PMs are delivered to your PM box....

But everyone please keep the rest of us up to date by posting that you made PMs. :kwh:
