Archie said that the hinges he is working on will be a little different than the ones before. there will be no need to clearance the door from the fender because he moved the pivot point out farther. this is why sometimes it is better not to go first. LOL
I can't wait to see her with wings and mine will not be far behind.

NICE!! I'm thinking those are the "good" hinges right?

Have you planned any exterior mods or are you still looking around?

Yeah these are the good hinges, modified and installed by Archie's team.

My next modifications will be Archie's widebody kit.



I will also be doing custom decklid and hood modifications, just have not decided upon what style yet.

Can the doors "close" when they are up? Or is that built in to the mechanism so it doesn't happen?

NO. There is a metal pin or bump stop that prevents the door from opening or closing until it reaches pass the bump stop.

Please forgive me for being ill-informed, but who's car is this?



Looks a lot like FierociousGT's but not quite... Unless he's changed his since the build thread I read...
Can anyone help me out? I really need some info on this rear hatch. Thanks!
