    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.

    Can you post them here? I believe this is the part number?

    Sorry I am slow to post but this was just brought to my attention. The picture at the top looks to be for a Supra 242. If this is correct, it is our part number for the hinge is 100586. It is a stainless steel hinge, 2 12" H x 24" L.

    Yes, that's the right number and dimensions - that is actually 2-1/2" H.





    Used tape to transfer lines of hinge over to cushion so everything would line up.



    You can see here where the hinge has been shortened. I had to do this because my cushions taper down in the back and the hinge would have stuck up and done some serious damage to anyone sliding across it.

    I may get some extra vinyl and wrap the hinges so there is nothing showing. They sit are low and subtle enough that no one said anything all summer about them. I'm probably the only one who noticed...



    Guess I didn't take any closeups of the strut mounting - but maybe these will give you an idea.

    I was dreading pulling all the staples out, this is usually the worst part. I bought this awesome tool. Was able to remove the skin this skin in a few minutes..
