Model A Trunk Hinge Installation

Hello HotRodders,
I have a 31 5 w coupe. I have new hinges to convert the rumble to trunk. Does anyone have pics of the hinge mounting on the deck lid?

Appreciate the help.

All they are is a flat flange along the side of the lid and a bolt goes through it from the gutter to make a pivot point. The simplest hinge ever.

As already stated the hinges are very simple in design. Below are a few pictures of the hinge and support bracket. One of the pictures is taken from the inside/back of the hinge. Left click on the picture to view a larger picture.

The location as to where you mount the hinge is critical as to the gap of the decklid to body.
