    Being that I'm on a hold for my cam, springs and lifters...I turned my attention to the door hinge on my driver's side air box. One hinge lobe on the door was cracked to the point of coming off and the lobe on the hinge itself was totally missing. Door and air box ready for paint...fasteners in final assembly will have shorter threads. I figured if I looked hard enough, I could of maybe found a serviceable door, but I like fixing things like this.

        I would add a strap brace on the inside where the nuts are
