Hinges

Posted by on Fri, May 03 2013 at 02:23 AM CDT:

I have some of the hinges for my EM restoration project but they have some sheared off studs (I assume from stripping down the car by the previous owner) and seized pins (in centre portion which I assume should be the pivoting part), has anyone successfully found a way to salvage the studs (it looks like they are bolts cast-in). I am thinking about trying to replace the pins - are replacement pins available? Has anyone successfully achieved this?
I will need a couple of boot hinges too, having read the previous posts it looks like new hinges are not available at a sensible price, I was thinking about importing new Morris Oxford hinges from India, they are about 30/pair inc postage - see Ebay item 171022999099 (but this would attract import taxes too), I was wondering if these were a suitable replacement - does anyone know? If they are suitable would it be worth making a bulk purchase - anyone interested?
