Hood tilt

To answer some questions first. The hood latches in the back when it slides along a ramp, on both side, and stops locking the hood in a horizontal "U" shaped keeper. I used the original hood spring mounting positions on the firewall to mount the ramp/keepers. This keeps things simple and can be changed back to original in desired. I also installed a modern front latching system, with release cable, out of a Dodge Van. When the hood is closed and latched it is more secure than the original system. If you haven't checked out my gallery under Pancaked hood flipped, do so. Also the price of the universal kit from The Huffman Group is $250.00.





Thanks for the interest--
