People been asking me how did I do the door hinging on my Volvo V50. Here is a concept picture of the idea. Please read the notes for better understanding. Please feel free to use this idea. On it's own this system is not very strong, but once you add the side skirts, the doors stay in place when opened pritty well. Dark (bluish) grey parts are actually fragments of doors.

    Far more complex than I had ever imagined, quite clever! Thanks for sharing

    This is indeed a very clever hinging system.
