Just got these on ebay from Czech Republic. Very well made. I know they won't be everyone's cup of tea but horses for courses!
Brings me to my question, could someone possibly give me some dimensions for hinge positioning please? Once painted and fitted I'll post some pictures

They're in 2 pieces rather than the arc angels type and tapered to allow the door to open without fouling the hinges.

It would be rather ironic if they didn't allow the door to open.

Only approximate measurements but from the top of the sill lip to the bottom of the hinges, mine are 4" for the bottom hinge and 163/4" for the top one.

I always think if doing this mod, then the bottom front edge of the door should be rounded like a MK.1 & 2 door, even if it is not the same radius but slightly less.
