Bonnet hinges can you rebuild??

Hi All,I can't get my bonnet to sit right and have found the bonnet hinges have play where the rivets are ,is there any way to fix this ?? I have thought about taking them apart but not sure of best way to fix. All comments welcome !!I thought about getting second hand ones but they could be stuffed as well .
Cheers Kev

Just sold a set Kevin, see picture. There is a guy, David Moore from Sydney, who put's oversize rivets in hinges. He took over the process from a Greg Thackray who passed away 18 months ago. I've watched the process, it isn't easy. David sells at swap meets. I'll try to find his number. other than that, search swap meets but the only true way to check hinges is with the spring removed. Bonnet hinges will align with a small amount of play in them, so your's may have too much play.
