Convertable Doors on a Hatchback? Is it possible?

I am about to tear into my '91 LX Hatch 5.0. In this rebuild, I do not want this car to be 'just another mustang'. I plan to do some unique things that I have not found in any magazines etc. One of those is to retrofit doors from a convertable on a hatchback. Has anyone seen this done? Is it possible?

By doing so, I would eliminate the window frame on the coupe/hatchback doors and have better looking mirrors (in my opinion). My concern, of course, is weatherstripping and sealing out the water! If anyone has seen this done or has any advice, I'm all ears! :cool:

I doubt that the door frames add very much structually, but subframes aren't that expensive, I think everyone should have em.
