I got to witness first hand the amount of work that goes into installing Vertical Doors.
First Up, the SKy's have some advantages over the Solstice in regards to cutting/trimming.
On the SKy, the quarter panel is Fiberglass and not metal. Second, for some reason, the Sky's hood does not require any modification at all. The solstice requires that a square patch be cut out to clear the hinge when the hood is closed.
As such, there is no need to get touch up paint for the sky's body work, but you will need some black paint to paint the support for the quarter panel.
The install, even with some cutting, is not invasive at all. I can say that it is very tedious and takes a Looooooooooooooooooong time. 3-5 hrs is normal.
The time comes into play when the installer is lining up the door and checking for clearance. A lot of little tweaks need to be done so that everything works smoothly, does not have the door contact the hood and everything lines up. I was blown away with how exact and perfect [email protected] and Joe[DeepBlueGXP] were in their adjustments. This level of detail had my PinStripes EXACTLY aligned by the time the install was completed and they were not even using that as a gauge.
So Bottom line is this.
The Price of Install is worth every Penny!!!
Hey Elff, do you have any plans or idea's on how to hide the hardware you can now see when your door is up. You can see all the brackets by the front fenders.....looks a bit unfinished. It would be nice if someone designed a panel so you cannot look into the fender. It would look way more finished. :thumbs:
