Is there a how-to on how to make the hood open forward? I have seen a White cougar (Maybe DeviousDev?) with the hood opening forward... If there isnt a how-to, does anyone make these brackets? Thanks
Although it is not my car, I will be getting that done to mine at some point... at which time I may have more hinges made to sell to fellow Cougar Guys ... but seeing as how I have no idea when I'll ever see my car again, I can't give any time estimates as to when I'll have the hinges available
My question was about the process of fabricating/using a different hinge to make this work for my car.
I was obviously here because I don't want to pay for somebody to make it for me. Shouldn't something like that be posted in the "FOR SALE" section?
Not to be a jerk or anything, I just feel that in this forum we should be looking to help one another, not make a profit off each other........
It'll obviously cost money to make these things... that's why he's selling it for a price.. You'll need time in a machine shop, as well as the materials and skills it takes to custom fabricate a hinge... I don't think this is a make-it-yourself mod.
You'd more than likely want to buy the hinge from another car or pay someone to custom fabricate it for your specific application. StreetConcept's(Craig's) hood uses a hinge from an 87-91 buick lesabre so that it opens up like that (as posted in the link above). IntenseImage had his custom fabricated, I believe by a shop...
