    Ford Pop door hinges and mounts

    I bought a Ford Pop in pieces and I am trying to refitt the doors to the body, Is the hinge supposed to be threaded or is there supposed to be threaded pieces in the door post, I have nothing, no threads at all, anyone have a diagram of how its supposed to be. Much appreciated.

    Nope, no threads.
    Its just a pin with some grooves/splines in the top 1/2" that grip the top part of the outer part of the hinge.

    Ok I may not have worded my question properly, where the hinge attaches to the car at the pillar how is it held on, I have nothing but 3 holes top and bottom, all of the hinge is attached to the door. So if I remove the pins, the half that is meant to be attached to the car at the pillar, how is it meant to be attached.
    Appreciate everyones help.

    Ah, they are bolted on. You need a double jointed hand to reach the nuts on the front of the A pillar under the screen.

    EDIT,

    Thats nuts & bolts, a 2 person job to do.

    Hinge matters
    The bolts need to have a low profile large diameter dome to fit inside the shut and spread the load. Thread 5/16" unc, whitworth or m8 will do. Originally slot head but some supplies are cross heads. Spring washers under plain full nuts but nyloc are an option. Plain nuts have advantage you can spin the nuts on or off once loosened as the bolts can be extra long as that helps get the nuts in place as mentioned above with double jointed fingers. A useful tool would be a box spanner cut short with a bar welded on as the nuts are tight in the channel. I wish I had made one up at the time as it is usually necessary to fit and remove door/hinges when building. Just one more thing. Consider not fully refitting pins in hinges until build is nearly complete. If fitting new pins a practise full fit of pins then removal will avoid frustration and damaged paint as they can take a heavy blow using a drift to get them in, use a block support under the door hinge. A helper is an advantage. Borrow, buy or make a door pin extractor as they can be surprisingly stubborn.
    Greatest discombobulations to all my readers.
