It's possible but not easy as there isn't a bolt on kit readily available so your looking at a far bit of cutsom fabrication and a little trial and error in getting it to work properly.

Common ways of doing it use robin reliant or transit hinges.

Have a word with roadrunna who had a go a few times or come and find the Fun lovin Flat fours at bugjam and take a look at targa bug which in my opinion has the tidiest suicide door conversion i've ever seen.

Fair bit of hassle but definatly worth it!
