Suicide doors...?

Has anyone made or done suicide doors on 60's model trucks? preferrably on 60-63 with rap around windows.. If anyone has some pics of theirs that they did, or have a pics or something that would be cool. Ive been tossing it up, not quite there yet but ya know just thinking about it..

Thanks, Scott

Wow thats crazy. the 66 burb in that other thread is my old truck. It wasn't really that hard to do the suicide on it. I also worked on Barbee's 63 too.
