Suicide doors? (HX P-van)

Hey guys and gals, Im new here so be nice )

My friend has asked me if I could suicide the doors on his HX panel van. I dont want to go about buying an expensive kit or anything like that so I'd like to use production car hinges. Does anyone know of a car with nice strong (low profile?) hinges to swing the doors backwards? Can I use the standard catches and just reverse them from side to side? What should I use as the "deadbolt" lock, so the doors don't fly open and get ripped off? Has anyone had experience with them?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
-Dan'
