    Hello all, I have a question. My 73 Barracuda trunk hinge pins are grooved from years of the trunk lid going up and down. Is there a bushing available to fit over these pins? Thanks John.

    I tacked a thick washer inside the hinge arm. The washer id was just big enough to fit over the hinge pin. The washer puts the load on an unworn area. I did have to use new, thinner, round push retainers.

    That is a great idea. I will give it a go, thanks.
