Messed up my 1950 F1 door hinge

I was trying to replace the hinge pin on the passenger side upper hinge. Soaked in PB for months, tried heat and then a punch with BFH. NO GO! Decided to drill out and did not keep the bit lined up with the pin so I came out to the side of the hinge at the bottom. And, I still can't drive the pin out! You were all right about this being a hard job. Did I ruin my hinge or do you think I can weld this up and still use it? Or, do I start looking for a new hinge?

Hinge pins are taped and only come out the top. They also have a spline on them to keep them from turning.
With that all said i think you would be best buying a used hinge. Alot of these guys can probably help you out with one.
Ive said many times after spraying a week its the tool and a impact vibrating that works for me.

Various vendors make hinge pin removal/installation tools, here is but one https://www.eastwood.com/door-hinge-...000a3fc6932e14
My trucks are all F100s (so no hinge pins) but I do have a tool like this that I bought/use on my 40 Ford hinges.
