Fellow Avionistas, one of the back door hinges on Argo has broken. I had it welded but it has just broken again. In looking for replacements, I ordered a set from Amazon but they were different dimensions so I returned them. VTS shows a set suitable for mid 60s Shastas but they are not currently available and arrival time is unknown.
My question is have any of you replaced those door hinges and, if so, where did you find suitable replacements? Alternatively, do any of you out there in Avionland have a spare hinge or hinges you could sell me?
Thanks, Dick

Dick, I’m a bit confused . My early 68 has an 1-1/2” piano hinge the entire height . Seems like it would be an easy replacement . All my doors bath , closet, and cabinets have piano hinges .

Hey guys, long time no see. D1 great that you're still at it. I, too, have a piano hinge for the back door and the bathroom door.
