Has anyone got any experience of using Rimmers front door hinges? If so what are they like?

If they are new old stock they will be fine.

If they are remanufactured I'd would shop elsewhere, have you tried Mick Dolphin, you can search his stock by part number easily?

Small time "private" trader who buys/sells genuine NOS parts for Triumphs.
You need a part number to search his stock list, and sometimes he can't find something he thought he did have (it happens, but a thoroughly decent bloke and always helpful)

Why do you need door hinges Murdo?

If the pins are worn you can replace these.

Hi Ian

It's the pins that are worn on the driver's door, but I thought if they're aftermarket pins then it could be just as bad after replacing them.

So thought about the complete hinges - I've bought a set off Rimmer Bros.

Sorry I assume that everyone know who Mick Dolphin is as I'm more involved in the 1300s and he is the main goto guy for new old stock and he is very informed about all things 1300.

Thanks for posting the link Mr Hanger

Excellent, it's always good to support the smaller businesses.
