Trunk Hinge Springs 41 Chrysler

I had my body chemically stripped with the trunk hinges/springs still in place.

I just put the lid back on and the springs will no longer push it up to full open.

I did close each hinge individually when I was hitting them with primer.

Anyone know if they need to be reset or adjusted some where or did they get hydrogen embrittlement and lose there power?

I got hold of the strippers and the guy tells me he tried to get the springs off but couldn't so I guess that answers the question I posed.

Wow, I would not have expected chemical stripping to do that. I did have a gentleman tell me today that he had a car stripped and the process ate out the alloy nuts in the door jam for the adjustable latch striker plate.

I guess every process has it's issues.

I just wish they would have stated something on their website about it. I did read about it destroying aluminum and pulled off 3 VIN tags before it went.

Its true acid dipping is not friendly to alum alloys and spring steel. If you have an electrolysis stripper near you, they can handle either one, and it pulls the rust out from under brackets and seams pretty good also. I know of three for sure around the US, Toledo, Cinncinatti, and Portland Oregon. This panel has been sitting in the house for a year and a half after electrolysis stripping. You can see in the bottom where a rust pinhole was welded shut, and just a few traces of flash rust. There isn't much access to the inside of this for them to rinse good, and that is why I took to them instead of acid stripping. The cost is double.

Now that is stripped nicely.
Looks like a good process for doors although I will be pulling the skins off my doors before dipping.

I never would have thought it would damage the springs, odd.

Hydrogen embrittlement occurs during the plating process as well.

I think you should look at the guide inside the spning maybe some meteral stuck in there from striping process, maybe just lube?

Good thinking! Maybe those flat bars have too much friction and not letting it move. Hmmmmm

I would hope something like that. I did spray some wd40 up into the pivots and also loosened off the pivot bolts and same thing.

I didn't realize there are two bars inside the spring rubbing against each other. Is that correct?

I forget exactly how it works but there is some places where friction could be at play. It's like after I had my hood hinges powder coated and they weren't working as freely as they should and Henry told me to lube them, duh, they instantly worked like a charm.

I wouldn't have thought they would be in the tank long enough to have any major effect on the springs
But .... If they dried it in an oven, that might be a different story
