Door hinge replacement


Sorry for the issue..First I would order and have in hand my replacement hinges as that will help visualize how they are installed..On ours an 88 they are spot welded on so it is a matter of some judicious cutting and grinding to get the old ones off..then getting them properly aligned again will be a bit of a zoo..having the marks tho will help in that area..I woudl suggest tacking them and checking the door alignment before welding the new ones up....

Having the front fender removed may help as well as you can line the door to the cab and then line the fender when it goes back on..

Good luck
I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..
