Best Hood hinge system 4 1934 Ford

I see Hagan's, Dan Fink, and Carolina Customs sells one, anyone have a opinion on which is best or other manufactures I may have missed.

Regards,

Steve

I take it you are referring to a 3 piece hood set up. those 3 companies have a good product.

I used to have a 3 piece on my coupe. came to hate it when tune up/maintenance time came around. a pain in the a.. to remove the sides,changed back to the original 4 piece hood

Understand about the tune up/maintenance time, something I need to think about before I spend the $$$$ and time.


Thanks

The Dan Fink and Carolina Custom Machine that open on both sides are almost indistingushable from each other...except the Fink has a grained finish .

Tip- make your hood braces first. It is a total PITA to fit the hinges to a floppy hood, and you'll never get it to work right.

I've never done a Hagan hinge.

Later, mikey
