Door Hinge replacement or repair?

Bottom door hinge is finally on its last leg… The crease was in it when I bought it a few years ago, and yes I know I need to add a hydraulic/pneumatic door minder… Obviously the wind catching the door and opening it up like a sail over the past 60 plus years has caught up to it. Looking for tips and sources for replacing or repairing.

That plate is just a piece of sheetmetal to cover the gap. If you open the door, you'll see the hinge. A photo of that would be most helpful.

Did it break the actual hinge on the door or just the sheet metal in the photo.

It’s just the sheet metal not the actual hinge as far as I can tell… door still functions normally.

Just have your shop fabricate a new piece of Sheetmetal and rivet it back on.
