    Deft Racing VLS HInges

    Have a set of used Deft Racing VLS hinges I picked up awhile ago but never installed. Always wanted these but need the money for other things. They open bother normally and vertically which is the best of both worlds. From what I remember one fo the struts is weak but you can get these from Bill rather cheaply. Looking to get $800 shipped which is a great deal at more than half off. Link to his web site about these hinges.

    no cutting required? can still open the car doors either normally or vertically? you say one of the shocks is bad? like doesn't work at all, or just doesn't hold pressure any longer? deft advertises these with hi-pressure shocks...which is what i'd want.

    wiring extensions?

    Yes open both ways. You can see on Deft's web site how they are install. From what I was told when I got them they're the 1st run which were the better of the two runs. And one of the struts is bad, how bad I'm not really sure as I never installed them. No wiring extensions but I can get you some wire no problem, I was going to use multi strand instead of individual wires. I do know Deft sell the newer high pressure shocks that last.
