Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
Good used OEM original driver side hood hinge. Available individually or as a set. These are far superior to the off shore reproductions you see advertised everywhere. The reproductions are very difficult to make fit and do not last very long. We carefully inspect these hinges before sending them as used hinges are prone to wear in more than one area. It is easier to fit and adjust these hinges prior to installing the springs on them. Here is a helpful youtube video
that shows you how to adjust your hood. Shipped with the spring.
