Default 3.5 ton tipper body parts

Hi,

Just on with swapping a rotten steel tipping body with an aluminium drop side body and converting to tipper. Got the body fitted on rear pivot. Had to strengthen the chassis runners as they were c section rather that box used on the tipper versions.

The rear door on the new body only opens flat with the floor with some steel wires to support when open. Looking for some nice either bolt on plastic or aluminium hinges to allow rear door to be lifted off when tipping to save damage. Rear lights are out of the way and guarded so should be fine for the little tipping he does.

Anyone recommend a supplier of these type of hinges?
Thanks

Most agricultural dealers sell body fittings in their shops. Also truck part factors. They will have extensive ranges.

Also Service Metals supply everything you need to build truck bodies, and I think they have a few outlets around the UK.
