      I'd like to see some more photos of how you added the 4th door.
      Looks pretty low [IMG]http://*****************.com/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Isn't the 4th door stock on a Trisatar?

      I think he's just created that site to upset Horrido

      Patrick-
      Looks like a clean install. The back edge where the door latch is, how did you go about installing that?

      This is a 1990 Volkswagen TRISTAR . What makes this doublecab a Tristar is the fact that it has 4 doors. The factory also added an luxurious interior. And it has side sliding windows, has special interior lights with grab handles,has captain`s chairs with armrests,comes also with a padded dash.
      The extra insulation under the headliner, rear panel and und the floormats makes a ride in a TRISTAR very quiet.
      This is our projekt with AIR RIDE its only 3" high.
      Wheels are 17" .
      There is only 1500 made. . Now they are very unusual. You can take a look at my homepage.

      I've been thinking about this one lately, and haven't found much on the web. I have a Multivan which is factory lowered, and I'd like to lower it a little further with H&R springs.
      I do enjoy going camping in Baja and elsewhere every so often, and so am looking for a way to raise 'er back up fairly easily & quickly.
      Thinking about air suspension. Anyone have any experience with this??
      Cheers

      I often thought about lowering my van, but it's just too impractical.
      I think air bags would be neat. Not to show off, drop in the weeds, or ride drrty three-wheelin in my eight-five...
      Just to be able to easily raise and lower the thing when needed would be nice.

      like when you need to be cool
      I wish this guy would update with some progress, it's a killer project.

      From the 4th door pics, it looks like you don't need to graft the whole door frame in.

      true...but for me, I'm skipping it. more money and time for stuff like stainless mufflers nicer subie install...etc. I can't afford it all.

      It was very easy too do that. But it take some days.
      You can see more pictures here.
