Bed board hinges like this?

Hi folks! I'm looking for hinges like this to open a bed board up like this picture. This guy "didn't know where he got them". I've seen them a few yrs ago as well. Also, any links to paint codes is appreciated. 1970 GMC blue. Thank you!

That could come in handy if a feller was in the "Import/Export Business" Or also into brewing [ahem] "Alternative Bio Fuel". Lots of possibilities with a trick floorboard.

Thanks, Looked into these and they are pretty pricey as a kit. Kind of not spinning the wheels as fast but they sure are dang cool. Still have a ways to go before I can think about installing my bed wood but if the truck fund is big enough I just may bite the bullet.

The machined aluminum bed wood hinge kits are nice but maybe a little too "billety" for a lot of truck guys.
Laser cut steel parts could be produced for a fraction of the cost of machined aluminum. The attached pdf drawing shows the concept. There would still be a few details to work out but it should be doable.

There would be nothing wrong with steel ones. Just be sure and keep the paint touched up or powder coat them.

Looks like we have some figuring to do if you're interested when I get a little further along. The kit for sale is motorized, but it would be cheaper to maybe do a spring in the hinge and maybe a magnetic latch. Hmmm
