And RD Enterprises (in US).

At one time, these hinges were not available at all. So good to see there are suppliers out there. I don't know how they compare to the originals.

The hinges were so rare that the fellow that did my new dash, Randy Keller of Prestige Autowood, traded a whole new Elan dash ($800 value) for a set of glove box hinges!

I sent my original hinges to him for my new dash by insured Fedex, after he told me that story. Fortunately, they didn't get lost.

Slightly cheaper at Kelvedon http://www.kelsport.net/parts/product_d ... ctionID=71

I think that they had them remade and are now supplying others. I looked at getting them made a few years back, but my supplier was only interested in making 1000 pairs minimum at £1.20 pair! I reckoned there was only a market for 50 pairs and it would take a while to get my money back.
Kindest regards

"Shipping: May not ship to United States "

I hate when that happens. :-(

Although I've asked sellers previously on listings like this and sometimes they will ship to US :-)
