Hi Scott,


Thankyou very much for going to all that effort on your hinge rebuild video.
I believe you're productions are getting more professional as you go along.

A special thanks for including the segment on the hinge rollers as well.I feel like a real putz now because when i reconditioned my driver's side i did not take the trouble to check for the wear you pointed out in the vid.
Man, iv'e even refinished them in 2pak as well. Oh well, back to the drawing board.Undecided

You mentioned that the Steve hinge kits give a lifetime of service. In your opinion, what sort of life would you get out of a stock replacement pin hinge kit. You could, for example express that in how many times you'll be opening your doors i guess, or how many door opens.

Anyway, thanks again for a great vid.

You are the Man!

Thanks G...I think the place your going to see the most wear is on the drivers side..It's hard to say what type of life span a stock setup will give.depends on use..The biggest thing besides wear is play (which makes the door sag)..I've seen brand new stock bushings & pins installed & the door will still have play..NO PLAY WHAT SO EVER in the M.S. setup..

LMAO!! You're awesome, Scott! Nice video, and nicely done hinges. I think I'll be ordering up a kit and gettin' my hinges back in order ASAP. I went ahead and tossed in some new bushings and pins and it helped a ton, but like you said the rollers are still a little wobbly and need some attention of their own.

I figure now is the best time, since I'm not anywhere close to being ready for the body shop just yet.
