    Door hinge

    About a year and a half ago, my car's left front door hinge was broken. It would have been to expensive to buy a replacement, so one of my friend made a new from stainless. It had been working perfectly since then.
    I talked about it here:
    http://dmctalk.org/showthread.php?10...l=1#post232365
    Now he asked me, if I can measure the lower part of the hinge, but I cannot, because it is impossible to make perfect measurements now, that the door is on its place. Can anyone help?
    I know, that a few vendor have new ones in the USA, but in Europe, it is a bit more difficult. If someone could help, maybe this rare part will be more frequent.

    I need the lower part's measurements on this picture:

    You dont need a stainless door hinge though.
    Id rather it out of mild steel in regards to the material properties being better suited for a "structural" piece like this.
