I could not buy a "used" Driver's Door Hinge in the USA that didn't need rebuilding (like the existing Hinge in my Driver's Door) for the excessive wear on the pin, plus even the worn Hinges were a lot of initial $. I went to the UK and bought a Passenger (Left) Door Hinge from a "right hand drive vehicle" where the condition was great and can be used "as-is" on my Left Hand Drive Driver's Door. My UK source for my XJS was justxjsltd@gmail.com. Problem Solved
