looking for those nice hood hinges to lift the hood on a 69 camaro. Will take refrences for either the chrome or regular. Thanks!

Chrome does look good but, it can flake off when applied to a hinge. What about powder coat or a prop rod and a simplified hinge, will definitely save some weight.

I ended up powdercoating my hinges and springs. For the springs, I built a rig that extends the springs a little bit so that when powdercoated, the coils didn't stick together. A quick trip to Home Depot was all it took.

I've had the hinges on the car for a while and the powdercoating still looks great.
