suicide door hinges

Dwip,

Are you interested in original external hinges, or the hidden hinge kits offered by many vendors ?

Mike.

I'm interested in reusing the hinges on my present project car, if possible. It's a 1974 VW Beetle, with the usual exposed hinges. I'm ok at welding, and have access to a sheetmetal prototype shop. Any advice?
