    Anybody have pics of their hinges on narrowed front...?

    I'm outside, with a blank stare, looking at my front clip on the ground, wondering how everyone else has made their hinges for their hood work after they narrowed it. Anybody got pics of their hinges?

    Well so far all I've seen is hood pins on Bowtie's. I would rather use hinges, knowing that I'm under the hood alot out on the trail.

    i dont think so caus if the hinges were at a angle the "points" of the hinges would be moving closer together when closed and farther apart when open . i think it would bind

    Use the J**P style hinges, they're external but they would work...

    The stock hinges wont work anymore as you have to cut the mounting away for them to get the fenders to pull in enough.

    The pins are not too bad with the hood skinned out but a set of hinges would be much nicer.

    You could keep them if you start the narrowing after where the hood hinges mount to the hood. Its been done on here.

    these are some pic's of mine i just did, I was able to use my stock hinges i just had to modify them a little but was unable to use my hood springs. double head lights like my 91 front clip are a pain a single head light front clip would have been alot easer. Enjoy

    Not such a great picture of mine and maybe a little different than you were thinking.
