Default Re: 1931 Victoria Door Hinge Mirror

On my Victoria, the pin holes have been drilled to 0.31" diameter and roll pins installed in the lower door hinges. Being springs, roll pins accommodate stock and oversize holes nicely. I cut the heads off of the stock hinge pins leaving about 0.13" of the pin under each head. The heads are secured in place with JB Weld.

External mirrors are attached to the upper hinge on each door. The hinge pin holes in both door hinges and mirrors were opened to 0.31" diameter. In lieu of hinge pins, I use 0.312 hex head bolts, and capped the heads and nuts with chrome acorn covers. Holes in each door hinge were drilled & tapped to accommodate the set screws of each mirror. This setup works very well, and its neat looking.
