How To Fix A Sagging Dino Ferrari Door

July 30, 2012

Anyone who owns one or restored one knows that Dino Ferrari doors tend to sag over time. The hinge holes “egg” out from use. Such was the case with the Dino 206 we are resurfacing. In order to get the best fit we had to install new over-sized pins and line ream the hinge holes so the pins would move through freely. Some folks, when they’re at this stage, get the over-sized pins and drive them in where it’s almost impossible to ever take them out again. It’s so important to take the time to line ream everything together so that you’re new pins slide down nicely with just a “tap”.

When we’re surfacing we probably take the doors on and off the car three or four times before paint. It makes my job so much easier when I don’t have to get a torch to heat up the hinges and pound the pins out every time.

Thanks to Alex S. for his expertise in line reaming the hinges!
