Thru-Bolting of Hinge to Instrument Panel Joint

A unique fastener connects door hinges through the A or B-pillar to the inner structure for 30% more stiffness, and optimized hinge and IP load paths. Allows elimination and/or down-gauging of local reinforcements and tolerance compensating fasteners. Reduces vibration, hinge sag and open overload, and allows for weight saving optimization.
