Whats the latest and greatest in the world of door hinges?

It turns out that part of the reason I'm having trouble with my drivers door not latching is play in the hinges... I want to buy a new set but I don't know which ones to get... What are my options for a 97 NAS sw?

Stainless steel. Ping Abrooks and see if he has a set.

Those are better than the non corrosive landrover ones? Won't they cause galvanic corrosion from stainless on aluminum?

I've got Smiling Hound polished 316L stainless steel hinges, plastic spacers and hardware I purchased while living in Germany. Parts of their site is offline but their contact page seems to be working here: http://www.smilinghound.co.uk/contacts.html

Td5 NTO hinges are pretty cheap these days. Safari HP has them. They have gaskets so the dont actually touch the body. Stainless mounting bolts and 90% of rust issues are solved.

Stainless hinges look fine if you are rolling on 24" rims and hang out in the same clubs as Neal.

IMHO.

they are paintable. The blocky styling leaves something to be desired in my opinion...

I was not implying that one would leave them unpainted. And I think it's now gotten to be 26" rims on a donk that is the club fashion statement for aspiring rap stars.

Speaking of which, I now expect the obligatory club shot of the scantily clad 20-something from Neal.

Hopefully she'll be attractive this time ... Not holding my breath though.
