Did some searching to no avail, was wondering what you guys use/recommend for hinges on boxes? I'm building a small 'hidden' box for amps/etc. in the back of my element and was wondering what type of hinges you guys have used in the past? Box is just framed up 1x4 with 1/2 MDF floor/lid. Thx.

actually there are some on there right now, just some sort of kitchen cupboard hinge from home depot. buuut, i don't think they're up to the task long term. they're hidden on the inside, but you can see them a little on the outside rear (not shown) of the box, altho i did leave a little extra carpet to cover 'em.
