Door Hinge

We have a 1970 27' Overlander with a broken entry door hinge. This is the single hinge that keeps the door on. It is functioning(barely), it is craked on the hinges on the door side. Material seems to be cast,can it be welded or where is a good place to look for the part?

I'm parting out an early 70s Ambassador. http://www.airforums.com/forums/308735-post8.html

The hinge will probably be an exact fit. Keep in touch.

Parting out

I would be interested in a couple of exterior compound skins. I would even rivet on my old ones to keep it towable. And I,m always up for a good barter.

Kip,

I'm going to keep one end intact for another member, but you can have the other. I don't know which end yet, front or rear. I'd take it apart at the stringer between the side panels and the curve by drilling out the rivets in order to keep the side panel skins whole. I haven't disassembled a shell yet, so I don't know how much work it will be.

I believe both ends are in good shape. I think an intact end, including the lower panels, will fit in the bed of a standard pickup (7' x 8' x 6' HWD). Getting this item back from Mojave to Denver might pose some unexpected problems, since the bed of my truck is usually full of other stuff. Message me in February.

If you're in a bind for parts, Cherokee RV Salvage in Westminster has some compound skins available and just announced that they have two other 70's Airstreams they are going to part out.

Oops, just looked at the photos again (see thread "Dead in Baker") and you can see that the top center of the rear end panels are dented. Perhaps the other panels will be sufficient for your needs?

Did anyone take that door hinge? Mine, on the '66, has worn. Wondering if the hinges are the same?
