GM compartment door hinge
« on: May 20, 2014, 01:52:05 PM »
a few years ago I bought some GM door  hinge material from a guy in La Grande Oregon.  I lost his address I was wondering if anyone  might know how to contact him.

That would be Stuart Bonney in Hermiston Or.  541- 5six7- 283three.  Don't know if he still does it or not.

We fought the rubber hinges and finally switched to the steel hinges. Never have to do it again.

Isn't the rubber hinge also needed for sealing and keeping the water out?  I did some metal hinges on mine, but I supplemented with some weatherstripping on that one.

There is a channel around the doors that a roll of foam seal fit right into.  The door panel sucks down into it and we never had water in the bays.
