Uh, he had a NAS 110 for years before he sold it?

And last I checked a NAS ST also has doors (and hence hinges and bolts).

I have every old bolt from my 90 and for some reason my gone 110. I bought td5 hinges for my nas 110 from safari rover. He included all the bolts. They turned to crap instantly. I then bought new genuine ones from rn and the same thing happened again within a month. I then went stainless.

You would be doing me a favor. I might actually go outside and get some sun if I couldn't be a metallurgist troll on here.

I got a couple PMs asking about bolts and hinges.

If you want bolts that look factory this is your only choice:

As for hinges the td5 hinges are a huge improvement over the stuff that came on the NAS trucks and easy enough to get. I think Safari Rover sells take off hinges. I am curious about the ECR/Cryotec ones but they might be super expensive.

I think it would be preferred with something like this to start a new thread in the technical area with a link in the classified thread to that new thread.

This allows the classified thread to stay on the topic of selling the item while provided a place to discuss the pros and cons of parts in question. It also makes it easier for someone looking for information on that technical subject to find it in the future,

I will try it for a while Tom. Doesn't really roll off the tongue, but the drum was fun.

I felt this statement/opinion was over exaggerated, not at all helpful and is what annoyed me.
Thread drifts seems to happen far too often.

The fact that you pointed out the screws were not glavy was very much appreciated but could have stoped there.

Due to you posting your opinion of these screws there have been a few different opinions on these screws - which in reality did bring the thread off topic.

I am not going to get into a pissing contest about this and for the record I changed all my hinge screws to SS too.

I actually have only used them with td5 hinges that were painted quite well and the picture was the result.

As for shitting on for sale threads, I never shit on prices or items. I try to stick to it as a rule and it was the problem I had with Dan. In this case I saw no harm in what I wrote. You listed the bolts as an extra that you weren't sure about. I stated you were wrong about the material, I pointed out they were factory parts and they rust. No one coming to buy your hinges looked at what I wrote and decided not to buy. Its a site for enthusiasts. If you're worried about it harming a sale go throw them on ebay or craigslist where your ad is locked.

The fact that people jumped all over the fact that I was shitting on your sale is pathetic. They were garbage bolts coming from a seller who didn't know what he had.

In the future you should PM me before you sell so I can help you write your ads.

.

I stand corrected. No more drum. Do you think the bolts were stained from the hinge pin. Or did the bolts themselves rust? Does the rust come off with a wire wheel to expose the original finish of the bolt?

I still think this is becoming an informative post. You comments and pictures have value bjf.

It's weird. The hinges seemed fine but some of the bolts the heads corroded and some the threads. I will wire wheel them but I think the coating is the issue if you scratch it they must corrode quickly. The coating seems to bubble.

As I understand it, the original hinges are not hot dip galvanized. They are zinc plated, which judging from the color is a bright zinc electroplate. Maybe a tenth of a mil in thickness. Provides some protection, but hardly enough to be galvanically protective.

Not sure about the TD5 hinges, but I have a feeling the protective coating is significantly thicker than the old hinges.

TD5 Door Hinges

Hey my comment is on point with the thread. Damn you girls and your catfight. I missed out on some TD5 hinges. Anyone else have any with or with out screws that may or may not potentially rust.
