Thanks oldred thats good to know...

I'm going to suicide style my rear doors on my 49 Stepdown so I am going to build some hidden hinges. I bought about 120.00 worth of steel thats enough to do both sides and then some but after buying all that steel I still needed the 1 critical piece to make the hinge pin housings which I couldn't find at 2 different stores ~ but thought I had at home in SS. and I did!

I thought about going with pre-fabbed kits but the stepdown has bolt on quarter panels and the kits would have required a ton of mods to work within the unibody and the quarter panels.

I'll post a new thread sometime when I get a door done up!

Thanks everyone!
