While setting the panel gaps I noticed that the RH door hinges had a small amount of slop.

I contacted my friendly Z door pin and bush supplier but he was out of stock. I had to wait, but a couple of weeks ago they arrived and I finally had time to fit them.

The pins were obviously slightly worn, however the new pin and bushes (along with a good greasing) have completely removed any movement from the hinges. Should be good for another 50 years now!
