Ford Slider Door Hinge Extension Tutorial

I posted a detailed tutorial on how to modify the slider door hinge for clearing larger tires on Expo earlier today. The link is here:

Here is a PDF version of what is posted on Expo:

I've updated the tutorial on Expo to include the steps for installing the modified hinge in the door. I've also updated the downloadable PDF on my website.

Re: Ford Slider Door Hinge Extension Tutorial

I'm rethinking my strategy on the slider hinges since the price of the Ford part keeps going up. It took a while to get to this point but I think I'm ready to order some laser'd/CNC formed parts to test this out.



For the time being I'll still be doing the hinge mods the ol' fashioned way.
