I know this is an old thread, but I am hoping somebody out there can help me out.
I need a similar pair of hood hinges to those Sachse items pictured here.
I am in a confined space and was thinking if anybody had some dimensions of those Sachse units that I could have and scale down or modify to my situation.
If I can get a start, I will post a project thread covering my full hood build, which is for a one piece half hood that lifts from the firewall.
Not my first choice but seems to be my best option to date...

Many thanks, Russ.

You may want to look into a reverese opening hood to get the scoop to clear.
I designed and built a set like this for my Astro van. I'll see if I can get some pictures loaded.
