Stylus door hinges

Postby Gicoba » Wed May 26, 2021 6:18 pm

Does anyone know where to source door hinges and latches for a Stylus? Also need hinges and catches for the bonnet and boot.
I'd rather not have to make all this stuff from scratch. Thanks. Giles

Don't know about hinges or catches (my Fury has no doors so never looked into it) but seen a few with MK1 mx5 exterior handles. They look pretty good. I assume interior handles and catches could be used.

Alternatively (and for the boot) I'd have a look what SVC and Europa have.

If you decide on mx5 ones I've got a set of exterior and catches but not sure if I've got interior.

Have you tried searching the clubstylus.be forum, it has fewer posters than this one nowadays but a good resource.

Some have said
"Mine were advised in the handbook when buying the kit , as METRO and dirt cheap ."

"I had a feeling they were either classic mini or metro - only ones on Ebay are dead scabby looking and £10 each plus postage
or new old stock available from Rimmer Bros @ £90 each ! - no longer dirt cheap"
