On page 393 of the book Jaguar XK120 Explored, the door hinge tapping plates are depicted secured to the doors by pop rivets. There’s no mention of any other arrangement. This is a pic of the cleaned-up original tapping plates from my current project
One of the lower plates was secured to the door with pop rivets but the other wasn’t secured at all. What I’m looking for advice on is the upper plates. They were bolted in place in the case of my December '53 production car. The nuts and bolts themselves were the correct BSF items. Correct or incorrect?
