    My hinges were removed as part of the mounting area was cut off. Since the hood also now pulls back over the cowl area, I didnt see a good way to mount hinges. I wouldnt mind hood hinges though.

    Could you use a jeep-style hinge?

    Use late model cowl mounted hinges. Fairly easy to move them around. I'm still using them in the stock location, but they could be inboarded without trouble...
