Door hinge pins

Does any know the correct size or even where to get new door pins for my 1954 F100? I have purchased an oversized set which didn't fit(11/32"). I'm trying to avoid purchasing a new set of hinges. I thought I had the dilemma solved through Macs but their pins for the 53-56 F100 come to find out are oversized as well, although it doesn't say that on their website. Macs recommended just reeming the holes. I'm trying to avoid that if I can.
My hinges are in really good shape, it's just the pins are or were bent. Loads of fun to get them out. Any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm ready to paint the truck cab but would prefer to do it with the doors on. The firewall and door jams are already painted and ready for the doors.
If I have to replace the hinges has anyone used the adjustable ones? They seem pretty slick but just not sure if it's worth the extra $80.
Thanks

Just drill the hinges out to the proper diameter and install the new pins. I find it hard to imagine how pins could get bent without some slop/damage to the hinges.

I can see your point, they are worn as well and I think that's where they seem bent. I guess it's from all the years of wrenching around the doors for alignment or whatever else. I'll check out the local machine shop.

No need for a machine shop, if the pins are 11/32 then just use that size drill bit and drill out the holes yourself. Easy peasy...

Thanks, I'll give it a try, got a mechanic at work that feels pretty confident as well. Thanks
