914World.com _ FS/WTB: 914 Parts _ GB: Front & Rear trunk GT style hinges

Posted by: ValcoOscar Oct 4 2018, 04:14 PM

PRE SALE

Well…I am converting my stock front & rear trunk hinges to GT Style. I have tried several hole patterns and I’m close to making 5 sets for my cars. I am willing to make a few more as a GB purchase for fellow members. I’m only doing ONE limited run. I can offer outright or with core exchange.

$165/2 fronts and 2 rears…outright

$100/2 fronts and 2 rears…core exchange

I will deburr and bead blast after machining.

PayPal: friends and family only!!!

Add $12.00 shipping

Those are pretty badass, I think I am in for a set.
I am curious as to how much wight it saves, not that it matters
-Andrew

Posted by: mepstein Oct 4 2018, 05:06 PM

It only saves an ounce or two but it does look great.

Posted by: mb911 Oct 4 2018, 07:19 PM

I know I could do this myself but might want you to do a set only because it's all about the pattern. Looks great.

Posted by: sb914 Oct 4 2018, 07:40 PM

Those look sweet! I'm in.

Posted by: Retroracer Oct 4 2018, 08:02 PM

These look really nice Oscar. When I drilled mine I was way too conservative (especially with fiberglass trunk and hood). As a friend said when I showed him the hinges post-powder coat: :"Mmmm, should've kept drilling...."

COOL !

Cant wait to see the bumpers !

Posted by: johnhora Oct 6 2018, 12:47 PM

Oscar,
I like the pattern you have used...looks good.
I've done many in the past on race cars with fiberglass lids.
And yes every ounce is golden in a race car...
I have some notes around somewhere when I did a weight reduction count of every part removed on a race 914 and it is amazing what it all adds up to....just like the balsa wood gearshift knob and drilled key on the 917s every little bit helps...

Thom, I prefer cores but not a must.
At this point I'm only offering these hinges RAW (glass bead blasted) or Yellow Zinc plated. I can also epoxy prime coat at no extra charge.

PM me once you are ready.

Thank you
