Gene, Welcome! Sorry I dropped the ball on the lift out hood hinge topic. We can pick it up here, if you need any help, looks like you've found the refugee camp:D

Nah, you didn't drop anything, those sketches were helpful...and gave me enough thought to actually make it to my favorite U pullit junkyard about 20 miles from here, just a trip around the corner in Jax Florida, lotta area here....

I have some hinges to play with about ten bux worth....so am going to mess with htem this morning, then take the vette across the river to play with a buddie's boat....electricals/etc on a ~20' go fast with a 350 chebby in it...

heheheheh......

I going to fire up the saw to fab some wood blocks and clamp crap up in some sorta position to see if my theory works out.....

IF it does...well, I will have to see how to do a few things.....

#1 is to lighten the hood, going to take a saw to that huge flat panel area under the BB add on scoop, that may well save about 20 lbs of glass....that damn hood is HEAVY.....then I will see about some aluminum braces for the hinges...dunno where I will find support for them as anything up top there is all glass, no metal I find anywhere....me suspects troubles there....maybe I can poprivit in a 1/4x1" maybe 2' long piece of aluminum up and under the fender/hood edge.....hummm.....

so far the hinges are off a Ford Taurus, and a OLds Silouette/Lumina Van...

small and light, and seemingly having the function I want in either pair, I cut the springs off the Lumina hinges, as they are in the way...

methinks I will start a thread about this conversioin, maybe get some other advice too.....

:cheers:

:buhbye: Kinda like getting out of the kindergarten and into a library, here. Quiet & thoughtful, instead of a roomful of screaming yapping brats. :thumbsup:
