Who doesn't like before and after pics

The hinges on my Trillium were worn and loose and well...pretty ugly
I ordered a new set from Team Trillum - they have the original hinges with the correct offset.
I lifted the door till the decal stripes lined up and duct taped it in place before removing the old hinges.
I placed 2-3 sections of round toothpick in the holes with some Gorrilla Glue - a glue that expands like spray foam insullation - and put in new stainless screws. The top screw needed to go in beforehand to clear the top of the pin.
After all that the door no longer sags - and oh yeah those new hinges sure look pretty.

Hey Mic

I paid $136 for the pair / shipping and taxes included.
Not cheap but I was thrilled they were still available.
The guys at Team Trillium - Outback had as good a price for these hinges as I could find and they were in stock.

I live in St Margaret's Bay. We plan on going to the fiberglass meet in July maybe we will see you there.
