Use a piano or continuous hinge. You can get them in various lengths at hardware stores (local mom and pop can usually order, the big box stores usually have many in stock). You don't need more than a screwdriver to install, but a decent drill motor and appropriate bit (probably phillips) would go a long way to increasing your efficiency.
The link below is for demonstrative purposes only. I don't know anything about Rockler, but these hinges are usually brass finish or chrome finish, and probably made from some fairly cheap steel. I can't say if using stainless is indicated, but you can cut the cheap ones with a hacksaw, if you need a customized fit.
Generally they hinge 180 degrees (like a book), and something like 110 degrees ( like a lid to a tool box) so mind how you mount it. Fold the hinge a bit and cogitate prior to mounting.
