Car looks great. Spray some lube, like WD40 on the hinges. Might need to spray it a few times if there is rust. That will wash out any rust or dirt in the hinge.

Looks very nice. Yeah, I would imagine just WD40. I wonder why they call it that...

WD-40 spray can from GermanyWD-40 is the trademark name of a widely-available water-displacing spray developed in 1953 by Norm Larsen, founder of the Rocket Chemical Company, San Diego, California. It was originally designed to repel water and prevent corrosion, and later was found to have numerous household uses.

WD-40 stands for "Water Displacement - 40th Attempt". Larsen was attempting to concoct a formula to prevent corrosion, by displacing the standing water that causes it. In the process, he arrived at a successful formula on his 40th attempt. WD-40 is primarily composed of various hydrocarbons.
Sorry for the hijack. I always enjoy seeing a finely detailed Bonneville. I love that color, two thumbs up

Nice car. The A/C might just need recharged to work at full capacity, I know mine does. Interesting center console cup holder, I might have just found something to add to my list of replacement part mods. My 03 is a SE technically but didn't have that.
