Replaced door hinges


The hinges for the door below the sink cracked and were falling off the hinges so I took a trip to West Marine. There I found Perko hinges, Catalog # 0271DP0CHR. They’re made of chrome plated brass and look much nicer than the old dingy broken hinges. Installation was pretty simple, just unscrew the old hinges, drill new holes in the door because the hinges are offset about 1/8 of an inch, and then reinstall. It took about 15 minutes to complete the project once I had the new hinges. I put another set on order at the store and I’ll redo the next door over when they come in.

The old and the new. The old hinges were completely broken.

Nice and neat looking

As a treat when I finished, I had some wasabi peas
