Lift off door hinges

Postby 77irishwagon » Tue Mar 05, 2013 5:02 pm

Do any of you guys have lift off doors? This would make getting in and out of the trailer easier.

I'm thinking about doing that to my fiberglass doors. Anyone find a kit or a good method of doing this?

if you have the stock hinges you can replace the pins with the quick release pins ... elease+pin

I have the lift off hinges designed in my head, but for now there's quick release pins holding the doors on my Vega drag car; I too have to remove the door to be able to get out of the car in the hauler.
