Question Front clip hinges?

Hi all,

Anyone out there know of where I can get a set of hinges for my front clip? The RCR has adjustable bobbins which are great for setting up the position of the front clip, but I would like to be able to fully hinge the clip for ease of access and practicality.

Thanks guys,

Graham.

Re: Front clip hinges?

Hi Graham,

Like you - I wanted a bit of functionality not found on the originals.
I found nothing that was readily available so I made my own after having studied a few different methods used by others here in the forums..

You can see my work here;
GT-Forty.com

Note that the hinges I made have not yet been finalized (fully welded, cleaned up, powder-coated) so you're looking at a bit of ugly there....

Randy,

I checked out your build site - that's nice work! If only I had a Mig welder and some skill

Cheers,

Graham.

Thanks Gents....

Next to the Door handles and Anti-Intrusion beams - It was one of the longer tasks on my build...

Re: Front clip hinges?

Sorry Michael - I no longer have the templates... I do have a pretty good explanation of the process on my build site here;
GT-Forty.com

Do you have an RCR GT40? Not sure if the front clips are all the same or not..
