Rust Resistant Door Hinges

Mine are rusting and needs to be replaced. There seems to be some choices out there. What is the part # for the ones that are least prone to rust? The MXC8284 ones don't seem to rust resistant. Paddock has a set of zinc coated ones: Door Hinges The price is certainly right but are these any good?

Some have mentioned TD5 hinges being more rust resistant. What is the part# for those?

I think ecr is making an alloy one. Not sure if they plan to sell but they look factory and I assume wont rust. I would want those.

It looks like from pics on the web that the ECR alloy hinges are the same or similar to the Croytec hinges: http://croytec.co.uk/products/DoorHinges.htm

So you're looking at around $500.00 for two doors. You probably can't buy a better set though.

There are some alloy and SS options in the UK. Alloy is better choice for avoiding galvanic action with the Birmabright panels.

A corrosion proof Landy is usually seen right after a unicorn.

We'll have some out soon. The prototypes are done and being wear cycle tested. They will be somewhat less expensive than those alloy versions currently being produced. First full run should be mid to late May (this year).

Yes, we are working with John to make "NAS" alloy hinges. Here is the first set. They already make excellent Td5 style hinges that we use on Wagons, but on the soft top cars to use the Td5 hinges it means you have to grind the door capping (making another potential rust spot). So we worked with John to come up with a NAS hinge that is the correct size and shape as the original, but made from better materials. Everything is done on them and the design is well tested (he has been doing Td5 style for years). You can order them direct from John or get them through us. The cool thing is that he has a NAS 90 in the UK, so he was able to test fit everything over there.

How did you handle the hinge pin? Is there a bushing?

Hinge pin is SS and grease-able and rebuild-able. There is a spacer on both side so that the hinges do not "grind" on each other (that was the cause of the rust in the originals).
We've been using these style of hinges on customers Nantucket cars for a few years now, and they have been great, and if they survive out there they are just fine.

Its croytec's design, we just had them adapt it to fit NAS 90 soft tops better.


The Td5 hinges are also very good. We used those for a lot of years (and still do for those who don't want to pop for the alloy units) with no complaints from customers:

Those are:
BDB710200
BDB710210
BDB710220
BDB710230
and you'll need at least 8 shims BDC710040

Maybe one of us smart folk on this site will cast some up from filled epoxy. Aluminum powder and milled carbon fiber? Vacuum cast? Should be an easy thing.
