I am truly stuck! I need to switch to my AAR hinged hood , but I want to use my orginal hinges. I have tried the wedge using washers. That didn't work even with 30 body washers per side (too many more makes it a ER trip or broken windshieldwaiting to happen) . It did move the hinge a little but not enough to clear the tabs. Is there another way short of buying fiberglass hood springs and hinges?
