Re: Removing top hinge from cab door

I drilled out the rivets and replaced with counter sunk m6 bolts, its much sturdier and stronger. While the hinges her off I put them in a vice to close the gap between the 2 halves of the hinge, this shifted the door forward and solve my gap issues 😀

Hi

The previous owner has stripped out 2 of the posi heads and i cant get them out. I need to drill the out and retap them. What thread are they?

Do you think the allen key heads are better than the posi heads?

Re: Removing top hinge from cab door

Does anyone know a way to shift my near side cab door towards the hinges, it fits every other way except it needs to go left about 3-5mm
