They're not PE hinges it's just aluminum tube and brass rod.
Nice job Ray, lots of neat stuff to look at. Congrats on getting the MCG PE hinges to work. lets see more pics.

For materials I use 1/16th aluminum tube, .032(.81mm) brass rod and thin sheet styrene.All cut to the same length.

With the hinge together glue the two ends onto one side of your project with plastic glue.
And the center section to the other side.
This is what you end up with a hinge that can easily come apart for painting.
Hope this helps. Any questions just ask.

I'm not sure.Trying to figure out what would be a good choice.
Great looking Autocar! It sure is a brute. Nice job in the hinges. What's going under the hood?

I think the cab will be green and the frame will be red but that can always change. Thanks for the compliments.
Looking Great !! What color or colors are you going with?
