I'm new to the site and this is my first post. I have a 1982 CE that I'm in the final stage before I send it off to be painted. I'm the need of two hinges for my rear hatch. I don't how many hours I have searched the web or on the phone trying to locate a set. Does anyone know where I can locate a set that has not been stretched.

There is a person on EBAY who sells new remakes from time to time.  I eventually found a pair of NOS but paid through the nose for them.  shortly after this guy popped up on EBAY for much less and his are made of newer material that does not stretch like the old original sand casted ones.  may have to be patient until he reposts another batch.

copy and paste,   this guy Steve Simpson was making replacement hinges but they we machined from solid steel and not cast like the originals.... the copyright on the website is 2008, so not sure if they are still in business but worth a try to email and see.... their email is steve@thecubestudio.com
located in dallas, so maybe someone in that neighborhood might have a little more info on them.

A while back Pete (PJK82CE) found a place to get replacement hinges for his 82CE.  Drop an e-mail to him to see if he still has that contact info.
