That would be hard. To do gull wing doors you would have to cut sections out of your roof and weld them to the doors. Then you would have to hinge them to some form of roof support. I don't know what all that would do to the structure of the car so you would probably have to come up with some new supports. It would be hard ,but with a good fabricator ,could be done. I doubt that there is a kit out for it.

Yeah, gullwings would definitely be a custom one-off job. They might be able to make a hardware kit but it would still require a lot of cutting, welding and repainting afterwards, nothing like the lambo or suicide doors where you can install the whole kit in an afternoon with a drill and some wrenches. And even after all that trouble it most likely wouldn't be worth it because I'm sure the roof section attached to the door would spring a leak (or several...)

www.autoloc.com and www.wingdoors.com should have kits if you are really interested....but plan on parking at the back of the lot.....takes about an extra space to open your doors up
