Group buy ?
I reckon we wait for Pete first as he's put a lot of effort in to do these for us, if he falls through though I'll be in for a set.

Three main tips for fitting hinge boots; 1) round off the ends of the hinge pins so they don't cut the boot when fitting, they need to be forced a bit, even the originals were like that. 2) check square hole in body for sharp edges and anything that might interfere with fitment. 3) use some Permatex non hardening sealant around square hole in body or around corresponding part of boot (behind boot flange), alternatively you can stick the whole area of the flange to the body with some sort of glue or sealant that won't lift the paint when removing boot at a later stage
If you don't have the thin sheet metal backings anymore I'll make a dummy one and post a photo so you see how you can make them, it's a simple easy shape that will do the job well as a substitute for the originals...it's not the best of ideas to bolt the hinge directly against the rubber, the larger surface area metal backing will give the hinge a more solid surface to bolt to and the rubber won't "squeeze" out so much

Have been watching the thread and sounds like a great outcome and amazing efforts.
Can I list for a pair whenever you have production meeting demand?
Appreciate the efforts.
