Door hinges

Postby sitnfat » Wed Feb 08, 2017 2:29 pm

I'm down to the little things on getting my trailer put together. I'm looking for some door hinges that have a vintage look to them. What cool looking hinges are you folks using?

I picked some solid brass ones at a closing down sale for a hardware store

You can't seem them too well but I used this type of strap hinge for my doors:

They work well but are a little pricey though. $>

If you go this route, two per door are more than sufficient for the door. (I used three per door because I thought it looked better.)

Those are what I am looking for. They will match my 40 dollar handle well. Where did you find them.

I used the same hinges on my build, and I found mine on etrailer.

I am a big fan of lift off hinges. Must be a genetic thing, grew up in a house so fitted...
