Rampide door hinge Dimensions Please!

Hi,
The PO of my Rampside used some gate hinges on the side door, I want to use a piano hinge like it came with. I know the stock piano hinge has a joggle in the part that attaches to the bed floor. I was hopping someone with a Rampside could tell me the dimensions of the hinge leafs, the thickness of the hinge and the joggle dimensions.

Thanks,
Ed

Hi, Ed.
Nice to see a new guy from the Oregon Coast!

The hinge is 46 7/8" wide
the flat leaf is 2" and the 90* bent leaf is 1 3/4".
The material is 1/16" steel and the center roll is about 3/8" diameter.

I'll post up some pics in awhile...

W0W, Ed, that is a Grrrreaaaatttt! Lookin' Rampside! smileys with beer

I'm heading down your way in January, later on. I'll bring that ol' rusty hinge down and you can look into what it would take to modify one to work.

I'll try to do some looking around here as far as a possible replacement, too.

Dan thanks for the info and the pics, I really appreciate your help, if I could see the hinge that would be great.

Mel your right, 55 Chevy finished, 1960 El Camino in progress, 55 T-Bird finished and 59 El Camino finished.

Thanks for the compliments on the Rampside.

I will post later on what I've done to the Rampside.

Thanks

Ed

Hi Guys

Matt took the pictures of the Rampside, I live down the street from him in here in Coos Bay, Thanks Matt.

I thought the Rampside sat to high, so I lowered it 4" in the front and 2" in the back.
I lowered the front with tri-five 2" dropped spindles and cut coil springs, the rear was cut coil springs and it sits on smaller tires.
I now have front disc brakes, a dual master cylinder and rock hard pedal.
I rebuilt the complete front suspension, installed an ADDCO sway bar which required some creative fabrication and welding.
I installed 3 point belts and emergency flashers.
A few more things to do and it will be finished for now, are they really ever finished?
