like the title was wondering how much play others have in there door hinges , i have about 3/4 of an inch in the drivers side and about 1/2 inch on passengers side thats measured on the door handle end of the door not in the hinge , no signs of either door catching the wings or not closing properly , thinking i may need a good second hand hinge for the drivers side soon though ...

Unfortunately there ain't no such thing as a good s/h soarer hinge, unless you get an extremely low millage one, as they all wear on the pin, you might get it re pinned by a good engineering company, I have heard of them being re pinned and a grease nipple being added, I bought 1 new ones for my soarer (cry:) when the front edge of the drivers door was just starting to clip the rear edge of the wing, I can't remember the exact cost but I do remember that £237.00 was in the equation.
Page 7 in old bodywork/cosmetic enhancements. First page of that post.
