Does anyone know how to make a set of suicide door hinges?

I was wondering if anyone has made a set of suicide door hinges, or knew where to buy plans for them, or anything like that. I know there are hundreds of web sites that sell them, but I want to make my own. Hope someone can help me out and thanks in advance for any replies.

Hey Minitrucker,
I bought a set of plans for hidden/suicide door hinges off of ebay for around 10 bucks. It's a couple pages of CAD drawings, with specifications for all the pieces you need to make, and pictures and instructions on how to install them. Here's a link to a set that's up now from the same guy I ordered them: Suicide door hinges
good luck!!

Here's how I design and test my hidden hinges (see entry 159 & 160)



Here's how I fabricate hidden hinges and make the mounting boxes. (see entry 147-149)

A completed hinge.



Hinge mounted in the door pocket.



Suicide doors mounted on the sedan/delivery/pickup



More pictures and detailed description of fabrication are in these two journals. Both have an index at the beginning so you can locate the door and hinge fabrication sections:
