    Default 4CV front bonnet hinges wanted

    I'm not expecting anyone to have any, but thought I'd ask here first, before ordering them from France. Would anyone have a pair lying around in good order? If so, please give me a price to send them to me in Sydney.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I don't have anything to suit, but just wondering if those from the rear lid of a Dauphine Normale would also fit. Or for extra bling, the chrome ones from a Dauphine G/A110?

    Also it probably wouldn't be too hard to make them up from a billet.....

    Thanks Simon. I don't know whether they're duplicate parts, but no doubt somebody here will. MelunRetroPassion have them in chrome, but at 38.90 Euros each (nearly $58 Aussie), I thought I'd try here first.

    I believe Simon is right about the Dauphine ones.

    Bonne chance!

    Thanks Peter,
    I'm a newbie, both on this site and being the owner of an old Renault (and a relatively modern Peugeot). I really appreciate the knowledge of the contributors to the fora, and am constantly surprised and pleased by the willingness to pass on information and the quality of the information itself. I'll now chase some information on the Dauphine hinges.

    All the best,
    Steve

    Hi Simon,

    4cvg's response seems to confirm your thoughts regarding the hinges. Do you have anything which might work? And if so, how much are these $2.00 hinges worth?

    Cheers,
    Steve

    Personally, I'd contact 4CV register people (via John W. & Frank W.) & see what's around in that network.

    Price? As for cost, usual story: whatever you're willing to pay & the vendor is willing to receive.

    cheers! Peter

    I seem to remember 63-1092, John had a Dauphine G boot hinge at one time. I'm sure he'll see this and respond, or of course you could send him a PM.

    The Dauphine G rear lid hinge is chromed and has a longer spear with three retaining studs on the lid side, two on the bulkhead side (so may not be as aesthetically pleasing or desired). The Dauphine has two and two, like on the 750. I've not had a look if they are the same, and don't have any of either (I've only got an old R4 and an 8), the suggestion was just to open up the range, especially if they are the same – without knowing the OS price. I'm thinking there should be someone around with something cheaper.

    Thanks for all the responses. Frank W. doesn't have any. I'll wait a while until Les W. sees this post, as he quite possibly has some. If not, I've wasted nothing and will order them from Frogland.

    I have a pair you can have that came with a car I bought recently. They had been roughly sanded before painting. I have cleaned off the paint and made them a bit smoother, and would be fine to paint, or with effort they would polish up. Just send me via PM your address and will post them Monday or Tuesday.

    I didn't think that Les did the internet.

    Another nice example of the mutual generosity which generally characterises Froggers.

    cheers! Peter

    Thanks everybody, and particularly Alan Moore - I have received my hinges.
