The hinge pulled the metal out of the door AND the pillar. Broke the welded nuts on the backside of the panel.

Deciding if I want to weld it up, or just put a plate or washers on the back of the pillar and bolt the hinge back on through that. I should be able to fix the door itself in the same manner as the other door.

Oh, and yes, that lower hinge was just as frozen as the passenger door. I currently having it soaking in penetrant to bring it back to life.
