That makes 6. Steve never responded regarding a price. I was told he was moving, so I will try to contact him via email and let you know what he says.

82Sharkman, your vette looks good.

I really like the mod I did on the air filters. I should send you a picture. Got the idea from this site. It takes it away from stock, but I don't car. I ripped all the emission crap off because in MD, once the car is 25 years old, no more emissions testing.

Obie,

Hey thanks. It has been a labor of love and I am still working on her.

I would be interested in seeing your set up without the emissions. We aren't that far apart. I have been trying to get a few of us together in this area is you are interested.

Jeff

Put me down for one set. Yes I will pay the price as this is one of the remaining issues for getting my car fully functional and cutting down the wind noise from the back glass no sealing with the weatherstripping.

Thank you for your efforts and let me know where to send the money.

I would like one black pair.

Jeff

I was e-mailed a link back to this forum. I don't follow this forum, but I notice some new members, so in addition to searching on 'hatch hinges' on the corvette forum, here's the brief history;

First, I am NOT a vette parts vendor. I'm an engineer with prototyping experience so I made a set of hinges for my wife's CE. Others wanted me to do the same for their cars, but it wold be too expensive to custom machine hinges for sale. However, since I did so much design work on the hinge already, I though I could help out the CE community by developing a CNC version of the hinge that would be inexpensive, but there was no enough interest, so the CE guys quickly snapped up the few protototype sets I had made and I had no intention of making any more.

A group from the Corvette Forum (not this CE forum) got together and pre-paid for a batch of 8 custom made sets. Now these were interesting guys with interesting cars, so I agreed to make the simplified CNC design for the $300 price even though several of the guys said they didn't care what the cost was.

So, there are 12 or 15 sets in existance, a first and second prototype and the rest are the very sleek CNC design (links at end of this post). There are no extra sets for sale, and it takes too much time and is too expensive for me to make a single set.

I've answered e-mail inquiries by offering to make another batch if another 8 serious owners got together. I have a few other guys who have been chomping at the bit for hinges for a ong time. I know they are serious, so if all of you CE guys are also serious, then I'll set up and make the hinges. I just moved to Texas, and my machines are not set up.

Don't PM me or expect I will see posts on this forum. Interested parties willing to pre-pay $300 should contact me at steve@thecubestudio.com If I get enough serious buyers, then I will commit to making a specific number of sets for specific people. Like last time, once I order the material, the offer will close and there will be no 'extra' sets available.

At the beginnignof this thread, there are links to the very first prototype which is still on my wife's car. New sets will be different. Still hand made, but of the CNC design:
