Hi, I was wondering if anyone has or could please post a photo of what the underside of a hood hinge panel looks like. Mine was all dissolved by rust. Thank you for your help.
This is a photo of a new old stock piece I no longer have. It is a simple stamping, outer ends near the hinges are stamped to a different elevation than the center, has a 90° lip formed on one long edge. There are no studs or any other features on the backside.
Hope this helps.
Mine has a half rusted lip on the backside. Can't tell how long it was when new. I have fabbed the front piece ans the part you and I have shown, but seems to be a bottom part to this under the hinges?
To be more clear. Mounted on the car from underneath. Seems flimsey without being boxed?
The front of the hinge panel attaches to the top of the front sheet metal valance.
Study the photos and you will see the screwheads temporarily holding the piece to the valance
So it is " boxed" in. Thanks, Larry. Hard to believe what rust can do to sheetmetal?
Can you please post some photos of what you are working with?
I’m sure I’m not the only one interested in the project you are facing.
Wow! very helpful! This is a well hidden part too. Thanks!
