Doors & windows in Fiberglass body

Hi Everybody

I'm pretty new in the field of composites . I intent to construct a race car body out of fiberglass. I've a problem imagining how Doors can be made since I think that when a cutout is made in the body it'll cause large deformation that the door will not fit in . also i think that the door itself will be very elastic if it is cut directly from the body. to make it short , could anybody give me a short explanation of making Doors in fiberglass body . and if there is any resources explaining the process in details i'll be grateful .

If you're making a race car and you want to maximize structural rigidity, then don't make any doors in it at all.
