Removing VDI Hinges

I'm planning on putting the factory hinges back on my car. From what l can see of there are two different pair. Upper right is also lower left hinge and visa versa. I will be reverse engineering the VDI install procedure. I would greatly appreciate any tips from those who have done this. Could someone tell me where and what orientation these plastic seals go. They are marked left and right.
Thanks in advance!Removing VDI Hinges-img_0573-2-.jpg

I know that Joe (DeepBlueGXP) over at KP has done a few of the un-installs including on his own car. I can tell you the orientation of those plastic pieces though. The one marked LH goes on the Left Hand side of the car and the one marked RH goes on the Right Hand.

those bolt to the top of the firewall, under the black plastic grill (under the windshield) Two bolts, perpendicular to the door. I'd show you, but I don't seem to be able to post pictures without posting them to some other hosting site.

Nice one Hoosier GXP. If I had my car here I'd have taken a picture and Google images was no help.

Craig, I think what I need is a beer, maybe several!
