    hopefully roger is coming over tomorrow so we can finish it up... if so i should have it wrote up next week... you can in the meantime head to the junk yard and pick up a set of mid 80s Buick Lesabre hood hinges, and while your there snag some clip nuts and bolts from a 1st gen fenderwells or rad support... you will also need a 1/2" diameter rod to put inside the support rod and a section of 1 1/2" wide 1/8" thick band metal...

    Sorry bout that man... still waiting to get together with roger to finish it up... i guess i can have him take some pics for me and i can write it up with what weve gotten done... all that we needed to do was the rear latch... but ii think i have it figured out, and i saw a thread with some ideas...

    heres an idea.. dont know if it will work that well, but....


    take i piece of 1/4 steel the width of the hinges then selves and then fiberglass them in to where the new hinges will mount, then just carefully drill the holes and your set.. maybe... seems like if you glass it enough you should be fine
