Hi,has anyone out there turned their 4 door commodore into a coupe? I'm just in the planning stage i've got the panel side of things sorted as lengthing the doors etc but i'm a bit stuck on whitch glass to use as i would like to have windup windows in the rear 1/4's as well .. Any ideas??
There were a few VH's turned into 2 doors way back in the 80's. None of them looked quite right. I'd say hacking the back doors off a VL and scrapping them is a great start but you sill have the rest of the car to go.
I've got no pictures but have thought through the project , it all hinges on what glass i can sorce , an auto glasss mate suggests that i try and use a two door glass of a jappa that has the same angle up the a piller , it has to be done propperly as i will have to get it cert ed
Why not buy something off the shelf instead of reinventing the wheel, have a look at an opal Monza, get the complete doors etc off one problem solved.
Loads of VB-VK information, All you need to know about EFI 5L Conversions Ultimate EFI 5L Conversion resource "
Wanted 85 VK manual boxey type manual side mirrors not the VL looking ones
why not just buy an adayer sportiff (vh 2 door) and put a vl front on it.
I appreciate you're trying to do something different but this just seems like a bad idea.
I'v live in nz and never seen a two door commodore, so thats why , my mate's chopping a mark one cortina s/w to a two door but my comma will look better after all its a holden!!
just weld/smooth the rears closed.. get front seats that fold in-half so ppl can get in the back
Done and Done
Look at some Opel Monza's, plenty of parts/ ideas to copy.
Plus they look like sex on wheels
