hidden hinges

Hello, I was wondering if any of you folks have installed hidden hinges in a Model A 29 Ford roadster. I have check out some of the hinge manufactures Hagen, Rocky but they are to big so I have decided to make them my self. I thought perhaps if some one has done this they could give me a little in sight and perhaps a few pictures.
I would really appreciate any and all help in this matter.,

Also look in willy's journal as I believe he has been there done that and do a search on the topic and a bunch will come up..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I bought a set of plans off E-Bay for $10.00 and have around $40.00 total in mine...

OMT provided a link to my journal but I thought I'd zero in on the door hinge entries so you don't have to search through all those pages. These links should give you an idea how I did mine.

Here is how I designed the hinges:



Here is how I made and mounted the hinges:
