I did and this is where I got them. NOTE: if you buy this kit they tell you to use a steel rod to hold the hinges in line. What they forgot to tell their customers was that the rod is "allthread" rod not smooth rod. Let me know if you decide on these and I can assist you on questions.
If you check in my Gallery you will find pictures of my installation. I think that the install went well and I did have to return the original order due to the hinges being too big to fit the post. But the small hinges fit just fine.

A better setup is the kit from Hagan. It has better adjustability, but the best and most important part to me is the built in check mechanism. It helps hold the door open and doesn't allow it to flop around or fly open without something to help catch it. It's more like a real car door hinge than one from a barn door. It's a couple extra bucks, but well worth it, imho.
these are the kits i was thinking about----- 1 question is---- are you able to put a fabrich door panel over the hinge? i dont know for sure but i think i will have full interior.........
Yes. You have to cut a notch in the door shell and weld in the rectangular U shaped plate, which will create a pocket for the hinge to bolt into. It will be below the inner skin when finished if you do it right. You can cover the entire inside of the door and no one will ever see it.
