Aircraft TT is about 1400. Upon inspection I notice that the door pins are wearing a little from the opening and closing of the doors. pins wear as they exit the doors and engage the fuselage bulkhead. Current circumference of the pins are about .435-.437. what level of wear is acceptable? Has anyone inserted short aluminum rods near the ends to provide extra safety for a pin fracture?

You might consider going to the stainless door pins. They can be easily retrofitted by cutting off the ends of the aluminum rods and threading them on the inside. A threaded rod screws in (I used Red Loctite on it) them screw the new pins on the protruding threaded rod.
