Hi,

I dropped the door to my electrical panel and the little, grey, plastic hinges that hold the part of the door in place that opens when the main door is screwed onto the box broke off (one was missing to begin with.) Does anyone know where I can get the little plastic "hinges" that hold the door onto the part that screws onto the box?

No make, no model., no location in your profile.
Going to have to buy a whole new door.

I was just looking at my murray panel the other day and I noticed it had the same thing plastic for the hinges. Don't look replaceable. Thinking it may need a new door. I was looking at it thinking I would just put metal hinges on it if they broke not sure if it would be legal though.

Yeah same as mine. I would just weld some hinges on it and it would last forever.

I would not trust JB weld for this application. Pop rivets or nut and bolt with lock washers.
Or just leave the cover off. I don't think you required to cover the breaker handles. As long as the wires and connections are covered it is safe.
