    Hood Hinges for 355

    what hinges are people using on the 355 kits? Is it just the stock fiero hinges? Could I get a picture of an installation? Both the hood part and chassis if possible. thanks
    What was I thinking??!!  I could have a VR4 Spyder for this kind of money.

    Stock hinges work fine.

    I built mine.. The Fiero hinges i thought were way to loose, with lift shocks attached just too flimsy. "side to side" I don't have a pic but will post when I do.. if you're interested in building your own I can give dim.

    I made my own hinges out of angle and flat bar. If you look at these picture links the measurements are simple. If it looks like 5" it is, if it looks like 3" it is. The only two measurements you need to know.
    The following pics show the hood open to the closed position in four steps.
