Question about hinges?

Hi there,
I'm putting new hinges and hardware on and was wondering if the Longer bolts bolt into the bulkhead or the door?
Also, how do you tell which hinges are for which side?
Thanks in advance.

Longer bolts for the door.

Hinges should have a part number you can lookup. Also if you get it wrong the doors won't open correctly.

If I recall correctly the thicker part of the hinge goes up and obviously the hinges with 6 holes are the top hinges.

I could try mounting the mirrors on the bottom of the door. Get that street level view going.

One shim. Unless you have something twisted.
