I listed a pair of good used hinges on Ebay at http://www.ebay.com/itm/150689770650?item=150689770650&viewitem=&vxp=mtr with a starting price of $40.

what was your final price.  I found a set in my garage off an 82CE with 30K miles.  just wondering what kind of price I could get for them.

I would not touch a set of used hinges if there was a workaround and there is if anyone is interested I will point them toward that workaround.

I replaced mine and have the old ones but will not sell them.   I also have the old original struts and could sell those if someone want to have them rebuilt.  

On the hinges it only take about 1/4 spread to give you some serious trouble and 1/2 will prevent the hatch from working.  I know I saw where they were bent back into specs.  All that tells me is that they were bent twice and once installed will be on their third time.  I also don't know how much pressure it took to bend them to the correct spec.  Were they over corrected and then bent a inoperable. 

If I wanted an original set I would want to get them bent correctly myself.  For $50 they are throw away so I guess it does not make any difference in the big picture.
