Since they only open about 30 degrees and all the hinge has to do is support the weight of the outer half, this probably isn't as good a mod as doing it for the larger cases. That and the fact that a plastic hinge only costs $5 from BMW.... 

But I decided to do it anyhow.

Ha that should make it slide better on the road when it comes off.
I've actually just removed a set of piano hinges from and old set and replaced with the plastic strip as the hinges had rusted shut being out of use.
Nice and neat job though.

That is an excellent idea.

It costs a little extra but you can get them in solid brass or stainless steel which won't rust. The pin on a lot of them is steel which can rust.
