Well, it finally happened. I got the call last night from my oldest daughter that the Z-28 is making weird noises. Got her to call me back via messenger so we would have video and sound, but it was dark outside. Only think I could see was that something is eating the belt, and the noise seems to be in time with the belt as it passes over the alternator. She's 3 hours away, and has no gearhead friends at school. Guess my bride and I will be heading up to her on Friday. Most all of the exterior whirly bits (belt, alternator, power steering pump, and tensioner) are all new, so I'm hoping that it's only the belt.

Still waiting for the road to dry off to get CURSE to the shop, but more and more snow keeps a coming.


I mocked up a first (and last) attempt at scissor style hinges and said to heck with it.
I will make box pockets that bolt to the cowl as I know already a pivot point that works. Prop rods to hold it up.

OK, thats melted. More hinge stuff, Pugsy.

Are Curse-style hinges out? With modified mount flange angles. Struts are so nowadays, springs would be

CURSE style?


Pivot style and prop rods will be it. I'd like to have some kind of rubber with a slot for the hinge to ride thru so there isn't a gaping box hole showing. No, like a shifter with a hard block off plate that moves with the hinge....hmm....

This would be much prettier than musclecar hood hinges. I get what you're showing... unlike a shifter though, the hinge needs to be able to go in and out not just arc. Right?

As long as you don't use the broom looking stuff. Just project chitchat. You do have some fun parts like this to do.

No, just arc. I found a pivot point that clears the bottom corners and puts it over the cowl as well.

Oh, you see it around um...newer cars with an adjustable upper seat belt mount point adjustment, the stud can be adjusted up and down in a slot in the trim panel so theres black bristles on both sides of the slot, facing the stud. To hide whats behind the slot. I am thinking if it were on the bottom of a walk through shop door, it could be called a sweeping seal. I dunno what to call the stuff but don't use it, lol. IDJ sez "its cheesy".

You could just use Mustang automatic floor shifters for hinges. Long as the indicator says park when open. I'm outta gas. Time to conk out.

TMP, we want updated shed count shots as you gather your flock to their new sanctuary. In other words, is the shed full yet? Fire up all nine (?) Chevys in one day.

Thanks.


I doubt they would work. Hood must start to rise straight up immediately to clear the bottom corners at the fenders.
Those look like the back of the hood will go down as it comes forward. It can't go down on the back until it's gone at least 2" forward to clear the cowl.


However, it may be worth the time to mock them up to see the action of movement.

The website does show them doing that on a '32 ford with the firewall mount under the cowl, on a horizontal plane. There are a few different designs on a search for hot rod hood hinges. There is a scissor design, but I couldn't trace it back to the manufacturer source. The link kept bringing me back to this site and a discussion from some years ago about it.

Keep in mind, the shape doesn't mean a thing when it comes to a pivot point (I think, ha).

I will look at this tonight or the weekend.



I for sure would rather not make pocket hinges as I hate cutting and welding in hard to reach places.



Oh, try and move the pivot point about 3" back. You'll see a huge difference. That's about where I need to go.
