Dinette Storage Bins - Hinges

There are two under seat dinette storage bins, one under each seat in my dinette (slide) on my 200MBLE. They are made of very thin plyood and open from the top as there is a finger hole. Question is, what style of hinge would you use, as the top piece with the finger hole was not attached in this new trailer? Ideas, Thank you

Piano hinges, cut to length. Be aware, unless the lids are square to the sidewall, they will scrape alongside the walls when you open them.
Attach hinge at just a few screws and test (open 'lid') before screwing down hinge completely.

Just to let you know I took your advice and installed piano hinges. Had to sand the edge of the plywood to fit and to avoid scraping against the walls as you said. Thank you.
