Retro fit barn doors

Post by rodmax » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:23 pm

Hi
I've found a 2007 caddy with a great spec and in really good condition. But it has a tailgate and i'd prefer barn door's .
How difficult would it be to swap to barn doors.
Thanks Rod

Hi mate, I’d imagine it’s quite a bit of work to do a conversion, and not too cheap by the time you’ve sourced the doors.
The majority of vans have barn doors so you’re bound to find something that will fit your criteria. I’d say leave it and keep looking personally.

Hi
Thanks for the reply, I know what your saying , but the van is in perfect condition and has a mega spec plus some nice mods ;)
I also know of a caddy with barn doors which is being broken , so i do have the chance of getting the used parts.
Really i was seeing if anyone had gone through the process and which parts were needed.
Thanks again Rod

Ahh ok mate. In that case I hope you can find some useful information about a conversion then. Don’t forget to take lots of photos for your build thread too
