I guess this wont be any help it is just a thought.As you are finding out hinges can be a major pain I got into this on a t-bird kit car some years back and it took forever even with a print to go by.I am sure this can be done but it will take some heavy duty trial and error.Good luck!!

I am not clear about whether you want specific hinge info for that car or hinge info in general. If the latter is what you want, I can advise that you want to snuggle the hinge pin pivot location as close to the trunk opening edge as you can get it. The farther it is from that location, the more likely you will bind when trying to open the lid. Of course, if you design a fancy 4 link hinge, that advice doesn't apply.
