If the guy wants to do it, let him do it. Its unique. I like the idea, then throw on those lambo hinges. It would probably be better with those lightweight doors. As for the price, you would have to check the shops in your area. Good luck.

You can get anything in carbon fiber. Fenders, hoods, interior pices, engine pieces, etc.

Invest in a roll cage first, the replace all your body panels with Carbon Fiber smile
I've seen some Carbon Fiber hoods you can litterally kind of bend. Not fold in half or anything, but they do bend. You'd have to have a way to lach the door closed with like a locking pin or something as it wouldn't have the weight left to close itself... hmm just lots of stuff smile
