Has anyone modified the roadster trunk hinge? Seems it can be made so that it will not go down into the trunk space as far as the stock swing hinge does. I'm in the process of using some heavy duty cardboard that I can cut on the band saw for mocking up the hinge shape and it looks like I can cut about 1 to 1-1/2" off the part that sticks down into the trunk space when closed.

My thought would be to use 3/8" aluminum plate instead of the 3/8" steel that FFR uses.

Your thoughts are welcomed.:)

Thanks, George

Factory Five did away with the big "horseshoe" like was used on your early Mk4 about 7 years ago and superseded them with these. They would be a direct swap of you want to retrofit.
