    lamborghini lp640 hinges

    Ok, someone please for the love of god post a pic of where the hinges mount so they swing up over the top of the fender, I've welded them in three places and they still hit. When I welded them on the Orange car the worked, what the hell.

    Rob,

    I think it's important to mention that you are using the style of door hinges that Mike Chase made since all the hinges will mount up differently. On the orange car I've switched to another style hinge so my hinge mounting points have been completely changed.

    I can't figure out where they mount so the top of the door clears

    Rob,

    You lucked out.. I was going through my build pictures and found some pictures of the old hinge mounts.

    I sent them to you in an email.

    I swear I mounted these the same way as the pics you sent to my email, I can't understand why its hitting.


    WHO KNOWS WHERE THE HINGE POINT SHOULD DRAW A PICTURE OR SOMETHING

    The hinge pivot pin must be high as possible in the fender. Use a spacer if needed to shim between the door and the hinge.
    The pivot pin should be approx 1 inch forward of the door gap. You can play with this distance until it's right.
