Hey CJ,


I'm curious why the guy in the video did both hinges at the same time. Leaving 1 in place while doing the other lends some support to the jack. The extra pair of hands is a definite plus, if not a necessity, even if you do 1 at a time. You also want to check that the holes the bushing fit in aren't wallowed out, which will result it very short wear time. Here's another video you might want to watch - touches on some things (like addressing wallowed out hinge metal) the above video didn't:

I rebuilt the door hinges on a 1956 Chevy convertible when I was much younger. Then again, I also removed and replaced a motor in the car, lying on my back much of the time in 18" of snow in the dead of winter. I wouldn't particularly care to do either again, nowadays.
