Seat hinges for cooler seat?

I know MC has fancy hinges for the seat bottom where the cooler goes, but they're not standard on all the boats and they're a non-typical Z shaped looking thing.
I've been going to add them for a while but haven't gotten around to getting the parts.

While using my buddy's 'BU last week, his side seats are hinged at the front with a piano hinge so that they flip up from the back.

Thinking this is a good idea for the side seats, especially the one with the cooler under it on my X2 and it's cheap. Can get a length of stainless piano hinge for like $30.
Has anyone done this?
If so, does the front edge of the seat sit up noticably higher with the hinge sandwiched in between the seat base and tub?
