I've just noticed a pretty large "movement" in my lower hinge, right driver's side, hinge.
Looks like the pin.
Does anyone have any spare lower hinges, in decent nick?

Thanks guys.
I'll be very interested in the update concerning oilite bushes Gareth.

Both my doors will be coming off sometime in the near future to have new lower door caps fitted.

Matt - My welder chappie has made two bottom door caps based on the NOS door bottom that you sent me.

Excellent - glad it was put to good use
(and sorry forgot to look today, I was changing my son's Fiat's winter tyres - it put up quite a good fight!!)
