    hinged 512 decklid

    anybody have any tips about hinging a tr decklid i have an old heritage and my buildup manual says to bolt it to qtr panels i think heritage was the first with the tr kits im real happy with the quality of my kit but i dont like the bolt it to qtrs. concept ive seen many trs. lately with the hinged decklid i bought the molds from a man that got them from heritage and he says the molds were splashed off the first tr that came into theU.S i dont know for sure but i can tell by looking that it is the most accurate kit ive seen im pretty sure ck3 and some of the other big 512 players copied it but im not sure but my car looks like a ck3 but i know its not anyway how bout some decklid hinging tips does anybody need bodypanels? reasonablly priced

    MIKE, does your outer hatch panel have an inner frame with
    the hinge plates in the top near the upper roof,mine hinges
    at the point where the hatch panel meets the extended fiero roof panel,and the pivot point os actually up under the extended roof panel so the hatch rotates around it,i'll try to draw a picture tomorrow and scan it,then e-mail it to you.

    no madmike mine doesnt have any inner framework . but i think what your saying is that yours hinges like a late model firebird at the roof not at the base of the decklid id really like to see how you did yours im pretty sure thats how i want to do mine

    MIKE,Isplit my 512 hatch to open in 2 parts like a real 512 tr,
    but the hinges i made would be the same for a reg tr,i haven't pulled the molds from the hatch areas,and mr-2 rear window
    area yet,becouse i'm finishing the windshield area to get the parts ready for the guys on the forum.i'll e-mail you a pattern for the hinges when i pull the hatch off again in the next week or two.

    Are you talking about Heritage A & F Ltd. from Illinois? Do you have any photos of your car? I bought a car from the, a couple years ago. I'd like to see a shot of the manual if it's possible. Thanks!

    I am VERY interested in seeing what they put out for a manual. If at all possible, I would really appreciate a copy. I'll be glad to pay you whatever costs you incur. Heritage is still in Illinois, about 45 minutes from me. Since buying my car in Dec 2000, I have become their friend & web designer. My hatch opens like the Fiero's, and I fabricated hinges to simutaneously lift and hinge.

    Have you used other usb devices on your computer? If not, it's possible that the drivers aren't loaded.
