    Me too. That's why I said I'll likely change them for black ones, even though they're not seen with the radiator cover on. They looked fine with the primer, but don't go with the orange.

    Today I decided to make sure I could get all the wires I needed through my door hinges. I need 9 on the driver's side and 10 on the passenger side. I thought I tried this when I made them but I forgot what the result was since it was so long ago.

    Anyhow, this is four 16 gauge (2 windows, 2 vent windows), four 18 gauge (2 door locks, 2 speakers), and two 20 gauge (1 door light, 1 signal/spare) wires in the hinge. I think I have room for at least 2-3 more. So all is well

    Now I need to get them painted, run the real wires, and put the connectors on the ends.

    Thanks Richard. I modified a pair of stock hinges. I originally bought a pair of the braided stainless wire looms but decided I didn't like the way they looked or fit. I got the idea for these from someone else and put my own twist on them.

    I used the factory u-channel on the 56 ht. I really like the way yours look, maybe I can use your approach when I get to the 55 2dr sedan I have.

    I have 25 pairs of hinges I was going to modify and sell but haven't had time. I think I have a couple of them half done if anyone is interested in a pair.

    I just received the hinges Laszlo. It's really a clean mod, and sure beats modifying the door and jamb. I will use them on the 55 2dr Delray I have. It's up after the 59 Corvette of my significant other. Thanks again! Dick
