    And I need to know/see how it attaches to the stock hood please. The replacement hinges I've seen are totaly redesigned so those pics don't help. I also need to know if its pins or bolt connections.

    Any pictures/help would rock. Thanks in advance!

    they are held on by bolts with a shoulder on them with no threads. that is where the hinges pivot.

    Thanks for the links. I have an E-mail in to see if they can get me those oversized. I have a local fastener place that can but I don't really want to order the 100 piece minimum.

    So I also found 2 HD springs about 12" long that look like hood springs. The bottom arm of the hood hinge has a tab and as I look to the rear of the fender well O think I see a hole for the other end of the spring.

    Sound right? Any intermediate rod or anything in between?
