Hello out there in the GT world:)

I’m trying to find the nostril hinges used on P1016...

Have bought Triumph TR2/3 bonnet hinges, but they are slanted and not possible to use. Mini Classic ones are all different angles and slants too.

Any suggestions?

Kind Regards
Morten

On the Cobra replicas I've built, there was a Right and Left side trunk/boot hinge. Put them on wrong and it will break the pot-metal hinge.
I looked into doing hinges on my MK1 RCR Car, but they simply would not work with either the single or double nostril panel unless I cut away a good 6" from the bottom of the nostril to clear the radiator..

i believe the originals had a hand formed alloy plate that came up from the bottom of the radiator to meet the bottom of the nostril panel. This was about the 6” high you speak of. Only going of photos I have seen.
