would it be possible to put a gull wing door kit onto a brat? I've been looking around and they make bolt on kits for other kits. I emailed one company, but they said they had to custom build a kit for lots and lots of money! I would also think that you would have to cut a little off the fenders because of how the door opens normally, it kind of hinges behind part of the fender. Wouldn't that be way cool though?

I doubt it could ever be done, just for the fact that all Subarus have frameless doors...

Gullwing wouldn't be possible without seriously rebuilding the doors. However, scissor (Lambo-style) doors are easy and relatively cheap. Bolt-on kits run in the $1500 range installed.

If that's the look you're going for, it's easy enough.

There are also SLR-style door kits available, but they require significant fabrication and are very espensive.
