hate those non rotating hood hinges.

As far as aftermarket goes and goodmark, year one, OEM stamp= it's all garbage. I always expect the worse when it comes to that stuff and when I have had a good fitting aftermarket panel I accredit it to luck and nothing more. I guess I'm seeing the cup half empty on that but time after time we get stuff that needs skim coats, bending action, cutting, welding and this is all supposed to be good stuff. I just don't believe in good aftermarket stuff on old cars...heck, they didn't even leave the production line with the bodylines we're trying to give it.

Lining up panels is probably the funnest thing for me but it's stressful and time consuming.
