Hinge paint?

What do people recommend for hinges? It looks like they were painted from the factory.

I am wondering if it makes sense to pull them apart, powdercoat all of the parts, then put in new bushings/pins. The PC would be more durable, but there appears to be a bit of flex in mine so I am concerned that the PC would crack and flake off.

Maybe that flex will go away with the new pins/bushings?

Anyone with experience have input?

I would not powdercoat the hinges. You would likely run into fitment issues when you try to reassemble them.

Take the time and rebuild them. Its not a hard job but will keep your doors operating for years to come.

Achipmunk: what goes into a full rebuild on them? Looking at the parts catalogs I thought that was just bushings and pins.

My intention is to rebuild them when I have the doors off.

I rebuilt the hinges on my 1954 3604. I watched the Youtube video , link attached, and it really helped me a lot.

My hinges got painted when I painted the doors and jambs. No adverse issues.

Yep, Evidence when I removed my doors was that the hinges were installed on the door pillars and painted, then the doors (painted separately) were installed.
I have them primered and when ready, install them and adjust the door fit, then pull the doors off and paint.
