A trick I do for hanging doors

Thought I'd just post a trick I do when I'm hanging the doors on my 67 Mustang. Anybody familiar with these know the threaded metal plate behind the door jamb isn't always attached and can fall down.

I cut the head off some 5/16-18 bolts and screw them in loosely. They serve three functions:

1. Serve as guides for setting the hinges on
2. Prevent the metal plate from falling
3. Give you leverage to move the plate around to line it up with the bolt.

By the way, these same bolts will also work great for when you need to set an intake manifold on top of the engine. Screw these in to the top of the block at each corner and use them as a guide. Will set the intake down perfectly straight.
