    Hey all -

    I just picked some replacement doors for my cruiser, but with no hardware. Everywhere I look, these are going for $50/hinge :eek: . But SOR has a stainless set for $125. Now I don't really want stainless, but they're cheap. So is it okay to paint the stainless hinges, and will this look alright? Or should I stay away from these?

    Thanks.

    Matt

    the paint won't "stick" to the ss like it would to "normal" steel.
    it'll cover it, but will scratch off REAL easy.

    I'd sell you my old hinges instead for cheap. You could paint them.

    I know you've already solved your hinge problem so for future reference if you sand blast stainless parts, paint will stick.
