3-2-2018 – Weekend Plans

Found this on e-Bay.  It is a Kent-Moore J-39761-A Door Hinge Spring Remover/Installer. Just received it today and did a trial-fit on the door hinges/pins. This is specifically made for 1996-2003 S-10 hinges – along with the other generic tools I bought, I think I am finally ready to tackle this job. I really didn’t like the idea of banging the pins out with a hammer!  I plan on swapping out my damaged driver’s side door (from earlier post) with the replacement donor door I bought. I will also have to swap out interior and misc parts, but the door is the largest part to tackle. Depending on how it goes, I will tackle the third door at a later time which I expect to be a little more challenging because of how the donor door hinges were removed. Now that the warmer weather and longer days are arriving, I hope to get some more to-do’s tackled in the garage.
