Thanks for sharing that information about the 82 CE hinges simpson36. The history I have on my 79 has the hinges being developed by Cars and Concepts. They are steel and haven't stretched any and works fine. The #4 frame mounts rusted out and resulted in the glass to seal gap open. I repaired that and re-shimed and the seal is now fine. I believe this kit was pricey back in 79 and the reason not many cars received the mod. Thanks again for sharing the information and making parts available. This is the best photo I have of my hinges.
Please tell me more about your weatherstripping problem. I'm having one currently. Where was yours located, and please tell me more about the repair process.
I see that Steve chimed in. I assume he talked with you about the struts he makes. Great Guy!:thumbsup:
