Hello,
I removed my door. A number of things had to be repaired inside and outside the door. Since this car will be due for a paint job after I am done getting it road worthy, I figured now would be the best time to do this. The door was not opening or closing correctly. I found that the checkstrap was broken. I also found that the hinge pin was broken. I checked Victoria British and Moss; neither one carries the hinge pins. Does anyone have a source for these?
Also, does anyone have any advice about removing the pin besides buying a new hinge?
Thanks, Kevin

you really should buy new hinges...
in order for the door to line up correctly
there readily avalible and not very expensive.

Rimmer Bros. (UK) lists pins for almost $10.00 each, while a new hinge is around $24.00. Moss Motors (US) shows hinges @ $26.00, and The Roadster Factory currently has door hinges on sale for $14.50!

Try Christian Hollum Imports, Quebec, 514-639-4639. He had replacement pins for my Spitfire so I'd guess he'd have ones for a TR6.
