hinge it at the bottom and use a winch attached to some chain and drop it open like a castle door!put a smooth skin on it and you can just slide right down, hehe :rofl:
Split it just above the door handle. The bottom 1/2 flips down and has steps built into it, the top just gull wings.

Joe, I wonder if rear barn doors are the right width and curvature as the slider. Or maybe you could modify the slider and then put barn door windows in it.

Sorry, I would have written "House of Kolor´s" Sunset Orange Pearl.

Link:"House of Kolor"
Ok, I see. That's a little pricey but I do like that color. I may just have to buy another van since I do like my black one. :think:

They are wrong all over, not the right height and more curv. I think it´s easier to modify the slider.

I seen suicide sliding door been done with "ordinary" Suicide Hinge Kit somewere on the net. It can be that darkblue and gray in this topic.

This is a nice suicide hinge, Buuuut........ with the stock design on the VW rear door, you can not open it before you open the front door. :think:
