    Can you put a picture up of your hinges? I have a 49 sedan I can eyeball them for you.
  3. Can't you just replace the hinge pins?
    A friend has his hinges drilled out to a larger pin size.
    Works good.

    They are all the same. I had one break one of the ears off when the pin broke and I guess I lost it. So I had to get some from a junk yard, from a 51 Vicky. Sucks drilling the mounting screws out but I got it. Not sure about now but back then NO ONE made replacement ones. I was on the verge of buying some from that Rocky Mountain hinge place.
