Stainless Steel Door Hinges

For those with the old body style that have changed or are going to change your hinges.

They are not an EXACT fit, the holes on mine were off my a mm or 2, making the door latch catch just a smidgen. So little in fact that I ignored it figuring I'd get to it later.

Temps hit the 90's today for the 1st time. Yes, you guessed it, the door won't open, the heat swelled something. Took my chances and yanked it open, which worked, filed door the striker if that's the right term.

Put a file in the tool box for this weekends trip.

I would of installed a towel or like on the latch side .Just temporarily to keep spacing of door . Drilled a new hole like I did to fix Escape's install with their new hinges I got from them before I found the stainless . I filled the previous hole . I would try to do this on trailer body then the door , like I did . It really isn't hard . If you feel the hole is making hole too big add something . You are attaching to wood .
Add sealant also . I found all my holes because door was really drooping were enlarged anyway . It's really a simple fix . Pat
