Hi all,
 
We now have stock and are selling our hinges. These allow you to open the bonnet right up to 90degrees and benefit from improved access and visibility (and no more sore heads). They're laser cut stainless steel so won't rust like everything else.

hi, i have fitted sound proofing under my bonnet so ut is a fair bit heavier than normal, would these hinges be strong enough to support it up at both normal and vertical positions?.

I'm sure there would be atleast 20 forumites who would be part of a group buy

Glad you guys like it. Absolutely! A group buy is totally feasible. We usually give 10% off for 10 or more orders. One guy, Richard, has already emailed asking about organising it so hopefully he'll arrange it for you all soon. In the mean time, any questions please let us know.

Sounds great. Maybe a tiered group buy like the recent A-Series spares. I reckon that would go down very well.
