Can't help you there, sorry. I'd briefly considered converting my barn doors to Dutch, but when I looked at the junkyard it looked like the Dutch roof was beefier than my roof where the top hinges mount.
Someone else might know more or have better info(I hope!).

Thanks Z6, how about going from Dutch to Barn door? I think that's what Moneyvango was looking to do. :?:
