Re: Billet hood hinges

Here are a couple of pictures of the shock. The hinges seem to be a very solid build, but Iíve only played with them not installed them.

Re: Billet hood hinges

I bought the entire silver line series for under the hood on my build, they make some pretty great stuff, I really like the fact that I can make all the components flow with each other I guess. THe hinges tying in with the serp system and reservoirs and what not looks super clean to me

Did you get these installed? Interested in your thoughts on quality and how they actually work.

No, I didnít. After finally getting the body on the new Porterbuilt frame, I confirmed that the oe hood hinge mounting location is a no go (even though Iím a touring DM) so I had to order the PB cowl mounted hood hinges. I suppose I could install them just to see how the fitment is as the body is pretty bare right now...

Re: Billet hood hinges

Hey guys update for me. I ended up going with EMS hinges. Got a great deal on them from a forum sponser Matt’s classics. Since I am going with a dark blue I decided to go with bling and ordered the polished hinges.

Ok thanks for the response. One of my hinges broke so looking to upgrade now. If you are not going to use the DEmotor ones and want to off load let me know. If are able to install temporarily to check fitment let us know your feedback.

Re: Billet hood hinges

I used Ring Brothers billet hood hinges on my '72 Chevelle wagon and they fit perfectly. So when it came time to upgrade my '68 C10, I again went with Ring Brothers. Yes, they're pricey, but I appreciate the quality. Haven't installed them yet, but I'll let you know in a couple weeks how they fit.

There's a good video on their website describing the difference between their product and the Chinese knock-offs.

Iíll throw them on tonight just to get an idea of fit & finish if I can get my buddy to swing by and give me a helping hand.

Re: Billet hood hinges

Those are imported. We tried them out some time back and they literally fell apart (Bearings).

We offer great prices on EMS and then you know you are getting a USA made hinge with USA bearings and they include stainless struts.

Anyone in the market, PM me for a price and PLEASE include the year and desired finish.
Thanks,
MCB Parts
