What's with all the welding, cross-drilling, and roll pins? Just grab a 3/8" hex bolt. Make sure it's long enough to double-nut the end so you don't have to tighten it down on the door hinge.
3/8" threaded rod fits though the hinge (I made mirrors for going doorless too), but a bolt with it's smooth shaft would work better for the hinge. Cut off the excess bolt after the double-nut on the end.
You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!
