Billet hood hinges

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any experience with installing these type of hinges before. These are from Eddie Motorsports

They don’t seem to lay flat when completely in the “ down” position

I have a set from ring brothers and had a similar issue. Check for interference on the back of the hinge and the firewall, I had to use a body hammer to re shape the pocket in the firewall to have it sit flat.

I called Eddie's.  I got some clarification on the mounting hardware.   It comes with 5/16" button head bolts and both flat and "AN" washers.  The hood hinge mounting base has slots cut in it to allow up and down adjustment, and some rotational adjustment.  The slots are not the same width.  There are 2 bolt holes that have narrower slots than the 3rd one.   I had flat washers in all three places.  This prevented me from getting any out of plane movement (other than up and down).  I put the AN washers in 2 places and the flat washer in the 3rd.  This gave me some "wiggle" with the hinge, and allowed me to get them to lay flat.
