Hello all, 

myself (Matt Steck) and a fellow Eagle owner (Rich Comer) have been working with a metal fab company in the US to re-create new and improved hatch hinges for our cars.  

They are already somewhat far along, using a pair of good hinges I sent them as a model.  They're looking to see what the interest is in order to estimate what numbers to produce.  There is an option to chrome plate, which, from the feedback we've received, is the path we'll likely go, for originality and durability.  We've posted in a few groups on Facebook but I realize that isn't the end-all-be-all of the internet, so I wanted to check in here.  If you'd be interested in a new set please leave a comment here.  

Sadly there is no price point at this time, but I did explain the Rambler Mentality as best I could.  So far the plan is to make a casting, however with more sound materials than the original pot metal and with attention paid to the weak points of the structure.  As many know these hinges are not available anywhere new and have notable problems with failure after new struts are installed.

Again, these will fit Hornet / Concord and Eagle Wagon models.  I made sure to mention the provision for rear wiper wiring space as well.

Thanks!

Hello ,could you  tell us with Eagles & Concords a updated status of the manufacturing of the hatch hinges? I await the time I can put the rear lifts on & take away the hold up rod.

Thank You for taking on this problem.
