Door Hinge Repair....Will this work?

Looking at possible ways to prevent future corrosion/rust before I refinish my hinges. Can anyone tell me why this is a bad idea?

Looking at inserting a nylon bushing into the door part of the hinge, that would prevent metal to metal contact between the hinge pin and the hinge, as well as adding small nylon washers between the hinge parts to prevent hinge metal to metal contact.

It requires drilling a little out of the door part of the hinge, to fit the bushing, as well as allowing the center to have a new hole that is not worn out due to years of use.

I'm not sure how long the nylon would hold up...hoping someone might know why this should, or shouldn't work.

The newest style hinges are galvanized and have bushings.

Ensure you are getting decent hinges. I bought new BritPart and 1 of 4 were sloppy at hinge joint. Turns out UK forums mention this a lot.

You have a nice truck. Would suck to do this twice.

non-issue with push button doors but the new style hinges require a little 1/8 trim on two part doors so the cappig clears this style hinge.

YRM doesn't let Google crawl their website, so you can't see their cost effective stainless hinges in a casual Google search.

I don't think anyone has a lower price.

There is zero reason to spend money on stainless hinges. The latest OE hinges are galvanized with bushings. They will outlast your truck.

Sorry, what are you asking? A source to buy them? Any Rover supplier. Same hinges from TD5 on. The bodies are zinc plated with plastic bushings on the pins.

Pretty much the only factory hinge anyone carries anymore. Michael linked one @ Paddocks but universally available.

Thanks for the input, and doing great, Roverman!...hoping the same for you guys!

I'm not quite sure I like the contemporary design of the Optimil hinges, though the do look well built, just not sure if they fit the look of my truck.

The YRM hinges look a little too blingy for my taste, from what I have seen on their site.

I'm not too impressed with the ProLine/Chinese hinges, either.

The Paddock hinges look identical to the ProLine hinges.

I'll look a little deeper at the OE hinges.

Thanks, again, for the input.

Well, I have four so-called NTO "Puma" Hinges on my truck. They're very different from the hinges that are being sold by the parts companies. They have a plastic bushing,

I've bought two "TD5" hinges from suppliers (not many grant you). They both came with a totally different finish (a shiny electroplated zinc). They also used a brass/bronze bushing.

The NTO Puma Hinges have been rust free for years. The TD5 hinges started bleeding rust months after I painted and installed them. The generic parts supplier hinges are also different in spec than the puma hinges.

So that's why I asked for a specific part number or supplier. Because I have first-hand experience that "Any rover supplier" is incorrect, or at least yields a hinge that is just as rust prone as the original hinges?

I said to get the OE hinges, not the aftermarket ones.

Are there any options for new hinges that don't require a trim of the capping on the st doors? I would love a bolt on solution stainless or puma whatever. I am pretty certain the new td5 ones do require cutting.
