Mary:

Very fine looking end cap.

Are you using some sort of water proof stuff under the hinge and the wood
that holds the rubber hinge, as well as the end caps?

If so what is your choice of stuff?

MK, that is right on da monet' ...be sure to seal it to front trim and under the hinge/trim back to the center of the hinge...while I am a proponent of urethane sealers, the construction adhesive has one negative...it is pretty well a permanent fix...if you should use it on a place that might need removal in the future, it could pose a real problem...we use 1part auto windshield sealant/adhesive and I am going to give SikaFlex 221 a try on the future build...they are both 1part sealers with a slight adhesive side to them....

There are a few that have put your type hinge and with the wood trim as you
have. Steve Cox comes to mind. I would take advice from someone who
has walked the walk. However I would want something with some flexable
give and a rubbery feel to facilitate movement. Silicone comes to mind.

See Steve Cox's words here on his hinge installation

You will or as you say have had suggestions as in the stars in the sky.
Reinventing a wheel when it comes to potential water leaks is not what you
really want to do. Experience talks best.

AH!!! See this I did not understand. Now it is clear. I thought I had 2 choices of either adheasive or sealer, but not both. that is why I was going for the PL Adheasive.

Okay so, for the the hatch hinge and hinge trim I will go find me some SikaFlex 221. Better go right that down.... It will be a few weeks before I glue the trim anyway, so I got time to find it.

MadJack, you are DA MAN!! :thumbsup: :lips:

Thanks AGAIN!!! :oops:
