Anyone know of a source for the door hinge pin?

I've looked at a few vendors and there dimensions do not match my pins.

Pin diameter is .271"
Overall length is 2.270"

Would prefer to by then machine myself.

That rare model Ford just won't be probable for any stock source. Model A are much too short and not quite as large in dia.

I checked the web for similar size steel rivets, but no luck. Most rivets are 1/4" or other stock faction sizes. I have some that are .310" in dia, but only 1 1/2" long. Not sure the head style is what you will need to exact duplicate the hinge pins.

Seems like a machine shop duplicate is required for those very long door hinge pins on your early Couplet.

Did some research and found some pins soft (42 rc) that I can modify to make hinge pins. Only $5.52 each.
