Anyone know where to get replacement hinges for the rear hatch on a Classic full hard top?

Found this thread in a hinge search. Anyone have any luck on hinge replacement yet? my hinges are stuck/rusted. Cleaning and soaking with PB Blaster but not sure if they are really salvageable.

One of my hardtop had hinges that looked like repurposed tailgate hinges.

After about 4 days of PB blaster / simple green & ultrasonic cleaner / wacking with a hammer - my hinges are no longer stuck. They are still in terrible shape and need to be replaced but are probably useable.
Randyzzz - I also noticed they are very similar in size to tailgate hinges. Seems like about the same width but different length? That may be an option if exact replacements aren't available.

Actually, they seemed to be exactly the same as a set of aftermarket chrome/stainless hinges.

I'll have to look closer, that sure would make things easier. I just glanced at them. Hoping to get back to it this weekend. Thanks!
