I have said this else where as a response to this announcement, but this has got to be a great upgrade for those of us with older Tigers. I have repaired white metal hinges twice, a hassle and a half! So a solid brass hinge is going to make a world of difference. An excellent thing to have produced 8)

Hi Steve, thanks for your kind comments this was only made possible with the kind permission of Dave Dibb so our thanks must go to him, I do have to agree that the brass hinges will add a great deal of strength and will allow owners to drive with the hatches open, the only amendment I have made is the ability to use M2 or 10ba screws to mount the hatch hinges to the hatch to add more strength.

Brian Thanks for your kind comment.

Simon you have a PM inbound, thanks.
