Thanks, now I can get them made today!  Oh, and are the hinges welded to the doors or bolted?

Mine are welded to the bed and machine-screwed to the doors.

I assumed they were always bolted to the bed, clearly not, interesting...

Just to add to your mounting options, mine were welded to the bed section. They were welded around the perimeter of the hinge instead of spot welded. The hinge had bolt holes for mounting but they chose to weld it on. Mine had gone through a B&M rebuild.
