After the concrete base set up, I mounted the hinges to the posts in the base and started working on the hood mounting brackets. I did not have any 1/8 inch steel sheet, so I used some 2 inch flat bar for the brackets.

Since I don't have the chassis constructed, I need to have some other base for the hood hinges. I decided concrete would provide an adequate base, so I poured a bag of Quikcrete into a 12x32 form and set some angle iron around a frame I made to mimic a radiator. I managed to get the angle iron set plumb, but of course my measurement for the width of the radiator was off by a couple of inches.

Worked on the opposite side hood hinge today. Having a working prototype certainly makes the second attempt go faster.

Worked through all of the binding with the revised hinge. The heads of the bolts used at the pivot points would hit fixed parts of the hinge during operation. Most of the binding points were removed by grinding away portions of the fixed hinge; others required relocating the spring base to a different plane.

Assembled the first revised hood hinge. Need to work out some binding during operation.
