    Impressive start. My '04 Outback shows a little wear and tear on the high traffic areas and I am going to need to address those over the winter.

    B, glad to see you back on the forum.

    Parrot, hope the itching has stopped from the fiberglass. Tough enough to take off panels for speaker mounts, but tough for all interior vinyl. Great job so far. Keep us posted

    Do you know where the side hinges are from, or sizes/info? What about the shock rod arm things?

    I looked high and low with some trial and error before ordering stainless hinges from ATL Marine. They are 24" offset stainless 2.5" piano hinges. I ended up cutting them down to about 18". Have the part number somewhere around here - you have to go through a dealer for them. I looked EVERYWHERE before going through the dealer.... (Thanks to Jake {Beat Taco} for helping to hunt around too.)

    I used 12" gas struts and got the ball mounting brackets from an RV parts store. I think I'm going to bump up to either a stronger holding force or a longer strut because these ones are not holding consistently like they should. The upholstery shop just threw them in so they may have been on their way out to begin with.

    If you want I can send you some pics of how it's setup. I absolutely love it compared to the 1 piece.
