Soaked the bottom hinge all weekend with WD40. Chemicals were a no go so I had to apply some heat.
All good after some heat.
Dissected the lower hinge mount bits that were still attached to the car.
Welded all the parts back together.
All the bits back in place. Sanded and epoxy sealed.
Bolted everything back where it belonged.
Rear hatch needs parts before we can fix it. Both small pivot pins and the mid arm are all buggered.
Needed bits Mark. Make sense?
We will build it if it comes.John JonesKeymasterSeptember 15, 2020 at 8:31 amPost count: 7335

We got this 78 super in for lots of work. Guy dropped it off and simply said ” it needs to be good enough for my wife to daily drive it” I said ok. So I’m going thru all the systems front to back. So far I’ve replaced the fuel injectors and seals, once I did that she fired right up and sounded good. But I then found the return fuel line in the pan was leaking in the tunnel, so I ran a new line down the side of the car. I simply added to the existing evap line brackets so it still looks kinda OEM I suppose. Then it was onto a full rebuild of the brake system. I should have the brakes wrapped up today. The front trunk hinges where very bent and unfortunately we have zero spare super parts around here, so I’m going to ditch the springs all together and just order some gas lift struts and go that route. Then I’ll move onto getting the stereo he has all installed. Once I’m done with it, it will be off to an interior guy to get a new top, door cards, and carpet kit.ColeBModeratorSeptember 16, 2020 at 9:23 amPost count: 1980

Mark has been a ghost since Pat got all that awesome work done.. Lets get that rear hatch on before it starts raining and snowing…
I think, some tube could be welded in them hinges to fix em?? and new pins?? Some fabrication, but what else you going to do?Baja MarkParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 3:21 amPost count: 451

Been away at my Dad’s place up north for a few days; not seen them in nearly a year because of Covid. I have a plan to repair the hinges and make new pins once the car gets here 🤙🏼John JonesKeymasterSeptember 20, 2020 at 9:19 amPost count: 7335
so just stick the hatch back in the hole and tape shut?? 😎Baja MarkParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 12:41 pmPost count: 451
Just lay the back seat flat and put it in there…wouldn’t want tape to pull the paint off 😓volksaddictParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 7:21 pmPost count: 660
Yeah, cause that’s what we do with squarebacks! Throw the fucking motor in the cargo area too while you are at it! It’s a type 3!!mtnbusParticipantSeptember 20, 2020 at 8:10 pmPost count: 1291John JonesKeymasterSeptember 21, 2020 at 7:08 amPost count: 7335FranzKeymasterSeptember 25, 2020 at 8:09 amPost count: 3913
The least I can do is weld the hatch on for ya.😉 A solid bead all the way around should suffice.
