I pity you my friend. Its sad that you'll have to convert a handsome 3 door to a hideous 5 door. Try not to make it as bad as the one I posted in the weird mods' thread.

Never seen a good looking or even average looking 5-door Sierra. It's a 100% spoilsport. That's my opinion. In the end, the customer only will become joker in front of others with his ride being wacky. He might not understand now, but after the mod it will get place in wacky mods thread in most forums. What will he do then??? Also the wackiness will ruin i-cars's reputation. So its good for Ilango and the customer to make it decent as much as possible.

All the best for your project [thumbsup].

@Ilango,all the best for your project,if the customer wishes for gull wing doors,then the looks differ from other cars.
This can turn out to a perfect modification,if there is a color change and few good modifications on it.

Hmmm Ilango apart from the Xenon lamps all other mods , i don prefer them on a Sierra!

Anyways as you said its customer's wish , but try to change his mind![evil]

Atleast do something like wing doors , i have seen few Sierra's which looks good with wing doors!

Even though its an 18year old car i bet that the build quality will be great , even better than some of the new cars on road now! Any rusting anywhere?
