Default Re: Hood Hinges

I used the stick on my 61 hood because I found an original hood for my truck and it is heavy. I ordered new hinges and springs but they didn't hold up either. Someone on this site told me that some of the springs from certain dealers were weaker than others. I ordered from Brothers and the hood stays up now but I still don't trust it so I switched to a block of wood behind the hinge. Works good as long as you don't forget to remove it when closing the hood.
