We ended up ripping out the 2x4 on the left that the original hinged
screwed into as it was turned on it's side and it would have been more
difficult (+cost) to brace rather than turn.

What we found was that the top of the shed had shifted and the 2x4
warped. We ended up replacing that 2x4 with a new straight one and
hung the door as level as we could w/o leaving a huge gap between the
door and the frame. Gap at top wasn't bad but grew wider lower down so
we adjusted by replaceing the twisted board and leaving it a tad off
at the top. We will cover the gap by other means, ergo suggestions.

The door panel looks like a solid panel, bracing will not help. The old
door bracing is simply for looks and not function.

Giving that some thought, it makes sense.

A full length diagonal or two might help prevent twisting.

If attached on their edge, flat not likely.

Where were you able to find the hinges? I have been looking for something
like that for a while now.

I got hinges at Home Depot that work great. Much heavier than the
originals. Both doors are super solid, close and lock tight. In spring
any adjustments will be made and final repairs and painting.

Is this the same shed that is shown finished in another thread?
