Have actually got round to doing a bit ore to my Revel Jag! Made a working hinge for cut out rear boot door! Works quite well but I needed to do a lot of trimming for it to fit!

Door hinges and plates fitted. They work quite well although I had to be very careful not to get glue on the moving parts.

nice work John :clap: :clap:
the metal strips look great in the rear luggage area and you've done an excellent job on the boot door.
