    WOW! Those things are definate crude.
    There is a plate inside the opening of each fender that the hinge will bolt to. You might have a problem with these because there is no offset on the door side of the hinge plate. Those hinges are poor examples of Diablo hinges, and even though they MIGHT work on a Diablo kit, its going to be alot of work to make them work on a G28L. I'll look through my pics and see if there's something I can post to show you what needs to be done. Stay tuned..........

    Yeah, I wouldn't trust those things to hold up a screen door, let alone a car door. Those are from the infamous IKR, need I say more......
    I'm still looking for pics Rob, hang in there.

    What amazes me is that people will put out a product like that... Post a pic of your hinges M.M. for all to see what a correctly done hinge should look like.

    Don't you even install a grease ZERK nipple on yours too?

    WOW everyone is yelling at me lol, well MIKE send me some damn hinges and I'll through these in the trash. I paid zero, made a trade, it cost me about 100 on the trade. I'm a man of my word so I'll send out what I traded for and eat the loss if they won.t work. I would just rather have Mikes hinges so I can get these doors on.

    MAYBE he shipped them over here , since his work is the only work that will do for you ,Rob send them back , I WILL PAY POSTAGE BACK BUT ATLEAST YOU GOT THEM an not a BS story AFTER WAITING so long

    This is a Pair of OEM Murcie door hinge

    SEE THE OFFSET MOUNT on the front edge OF THE DOOR , for the OEM hinge maybe the kit is missing this little hump

    Maybe this is what you want ,this style DOOR hinge




    In the USA if you pay a company / person to start a plug, then it,s your plug and work ,it is not theirs to sell or trade !!

    When Gegam finds out you're posting pics of the work that Juan did on his car he's gonna kick your @ss! I'm beginning to think IKR is JVD's brother! Maybe they took the same welding class together!
