Replacement Pins: Aluminess rear bumper

I searched the forum but didn't see anything obvious addressing this. The pins that hold the rear swing out doors on my aluminess bumpers rusted and stopped working.



I found a replacement at McMaster Carr. The new pin is stainless steel so should not rust and the lead in is a bit longer making insertion, etc. easier.






If anyone is interested:

Mine looked just like yours. A couple times I've taken a grinder to them, but pretty soon they will be too small.
