Question about taking off doors.

Would it be a good idea to lube the hinges where the door slides up and down? If so, what would a person like me use?

If you don't have lithium grease, any heavy marine-grade grease or copper anti-seize will keep the hinge pins from binding.

If the above greases don't work for you I have found that peanut butter works well. It is great for two reasons -
1. It helps lube your hinges
2. If you ever get stranded some place you have something to munch on.

PS - Make sure you get the organic peanut butter. The artificial brands are a little too thick

What about graphite? Is that a good lube?

I use bearing grease. I suppose just about any grease will work.
