    It is way too easy to make them yourself. To answer your question...no. They are not even close.

    If you go to a steel store and buy 9/16" solid COLD rolled steel...get about 15 inches of it.
    Grab some DOM steel tube 1" O.D. X 9/16" I.D....about 10"
    Grab some 2" X 3/8" hot rolled flat bar...about 2 feet.

    This should cost you around $30.00 or so.

    With this you can easily make door hinges for the Diablo or Countach.

    This is a picture of the hinges from http://www.scuderiamarinelli.com


    They look the same as the ones from naerc. The hinges I got from naerc seized and I could hardly open the door. In fact, fiberglass was flexing they were so bad. The hinges from MM are not made like that. Naerc would assemble them then crush the assembly in the middle to make it tighter.
    I ended up having to make my own hinges and replace them on both sides after the car was painted.
    If you weld the pins one the outside and drill center tube for grease like the picture, they will last forever.

    Hey Jim, I have been looking for a good set of dimensions for hinges. I have the dimensions from lambolounge, but people said that the dims are flawed. Thanks, Jarod

    Plus the fiero lambo hinges feel pretty floppy as a result of having to push outward before upward. My lambo hinges feel real strong.

    You need to cut the round tube (DOM) into the lengths you want, clean them on a lathe to ensure a smooth action when moving, insert the pin (solid round bar) and weld. That's your hinge. Now weld on a pieces of flat to match the hinge above.
    If you want I can make a simple drawing that will show how to make a hinge similar to that of naercs (only better).

    If you are not going for exact accuracy this style will work just great and be very solid.

    Let me know.

    I made my own but I have a bridgeport mill and a lathe which helps to make a nice hinge. I have an extra set. $395/pr plus shipping from Michigan.



    The separation between genius and insane is the time it takes to complete half of your kit car!
