Report Stainless tailgate hinges in Interior/Exterior/Lights/Glass/Alarms/ICE/HVAC Posted November 19, 2017 · Edited November 19, 2017 by Roberto Esprit Tired and no memory....and Hey Guys. Since there is a lot of interest yall dont mind waiting till after christmass do you? Ill buy a proper brake. I was going to hand bend them which is fine for a small batch but repeatability is an issue. but with so many people wanting them I can shell out for a brake. Stainless if I dont do anything special for the hinge most likely I can meat or beat OEM. Especially since the JPY is much lower then the euro and pound at the moment. I will be attempting a hand bent set on my 1990 as a prototype but I wont be shipping anything hand made since there is so much interest. I would rather do them in a brake. I need the brake for my hobby anywho. Again an issue is drilling the brackets but I can drill them I just would rather you guys who have a drill press do your own but that will be up to the individual. Supplier is looking like china not that steel as of late has been coming out of anywhere decent. If anyone knows a good german supplier I would much rather use that stuff. But its all dollar per dollar or euro per euro. Also furthermore I dont live in hongkong... I live in Japan. Dunno how the profile got that way. Anyways guys this will happen and dont feel bad to poke me with a PM if you want your set sooner. EDIT: Forgot I to mention I am shooting to use 2 mil but well see once I get it prototyped how it fits. Someone get me a few photos of their brackets off the car. I want to confirm a few things.
