Billet bonnet hinges


Hi everyone,
My name is Russell from Bundaberg in Qld 4670.
I have 4 sets of billet alluminium bonnet hinges for sale.

The hinges are CNC machined aircraft grade 8mm aluminium. Also supplied are gas struts, to replace the old springs, and all bolts, washers and mounts required (mostly stainless steel).

No cutting or welding required, simply remove the old hinge and spring and bolt these straight up, The gas strut mounts to the same body lug as the old spring.

This kit greatly enhances the look under the bonnet and is quite visible with the bonnet open.

I am only asking $200 a set, this includes postage within Australia. Please Email me on
Revmeup79@hotmail.com
with any intereset or questions.
Thank you.

First batch have all sold. Thank you everyone.

UPDATE: New batch available now!!
Please get in touch with me via Email.:yes:

They look awesome. have u tried to fit them to a superbug? If they could fit I wil buy a pair. Would be nice to have some bling under the bonnet, especially when I drop the kids at school & they get their bags out of the front.
regards
Jak

Hi Jak,
I've just asked a guy in the Biz and he said the hinges change for the later beetles. If anyone can tell me different or agree with that please do! I'll send VVW a msg and see what they say.
Cheers.

I know this is late, but do you still have the last set left? I have a 1970 Baja that they would look kick arse on. Only new to the VW game and just found your post.

No sorry, as far as I can find out there is a difference between super and late beetles and all others. I can't get my hands on a super to find out though.
