Yes. Thus avoiding unscrupulous venders.

Edit: I own pg. 7, hehe. I need a new pic to start the pg. off.

Madcurl, do you do VDC for a buisiness or just a hobby. I want a set on my GT but I don't think I could do the conversion myself. I wish there was a direct bolt on set for the Fiero, I would by it in a heartbeat.

The of the member in Canada has an GT Factory kit and it's similar in design as the Autolock. One of the issues are the weak struts to which you can only use one of them per door due to the limit space, but he may have fixed these issues? Somebody else might chime-in since I've never used them due to these issues.

Can you get the stronger struts and adapt them to this kit ?
what struts do I use ?
Also FYI I have plans to do a chop top and when I do I am going to try to lighten my heavy doors.
I have the front end off the car now redoing the front end and it seams to be moving farther back on the car
with more stuff. I guess that is how it always starts.

You'll need to pm fierogtrouge for answers regarding the GT Factory kit (GTF), but AutoLoc should be the ones with the correct info since it's they're kit, right? Besides, GTF may use a different set-up vs. AutoLoc.

Pg. 6

Replace it with a heavy duty strut. Fiero doors are hevery then H2 doors. What I like about the GTF hinges they go stright up (90 degress). The one problem besides the weak strut is the lack of a block to avoid slaming the door on your car when it's half way down. This might me solved in the new version of the hardware.

Street Dreams VDC kit (Ross)


[/QUOTE]
Sorry Curly,
Actually this is a home made deal and I was a part of it. It is not a Street Dreams VDC kit.
We wanted to get the most height we could and I think we did a pretty good job. We plan on making this a bolt on kit. Jesse (88lambofiero) go ahead and chime in. It's your car and you designed them.

Sorry about that . The car and VDC looks just like Ross's made several years ago and was later sold on Ebay (I think) Either way, your kit looks nice. Any additional close-up pics? Its operations? Cost?

No pic but they work great. Going to the 25th, you can play with them there. Hoping to have a set to sell or just show off .They will be about 600 to 750 depending on matierals. Rich and I need to figure out the final cost with time and labor .
