    I just bought a set of new hinges from LMC. Got them put on and they wont hold up the hood! Whats up? Is this a common problem? What can I do to fix this?

    Im assuming you mean to se if te bolts to the fender and hood are tight and they are. They are the correct ones, (right # and look like the originals). Also, it is the original hood. Im gonna call LMC but thought someone here might have some ideas. Didnt know if this was a common problem or if its just my luck running south again!

    Did ya get the round snail lookin' springs that go on them? '82s take 4 hinges - 2 that mount to the fenders w/springs and two that recess down into the firewall. You probly know that already.
