Outside compartment door hinge

I am working on referbing my 99' Gulfstream Caviler for a long road trip next fall. I have one compartment that the door does not close right on. Someone in its past put the wrong style weather-stripping on the door which has sprung/bent the hinge. I believe this hinge is called "hurricane hinge". I can not seem to find the style I have, everything appears to be much heavier. I wonder if using piano hinge would be a Bozo no-no? If you know of a source or have a better idea I am all ears. Mike

Any chance you can just massage it back into the original shape?
A picture will help, someone may recognize it and have an answer.
Happy Glamping.

Done for now

I managed to carefully get the hinge bent back into a some what workable state. I am going to look for a complete compartment door down the road. Works for now. Mike
