Billet Hood hinges
« on: November 09, 2019, 12:22:51 PM »
Anyone have any experience with these?

Seems like a great price.

if you have G-braces from PTFB, or similar off the control arm mounts to cowl, they can foul the gas struts.

I agree on the price . I hope someone buys so we can see if they fit good. Sure beats the $530

I prefer a stock look so theyre not for me, but they do look really nice for a custom look. Def. cheaper than the others I have seen. I am sure they work so much better than stock.

I pulled the trigger and they are exceptionally nice.  They even use sealed bearing at the pivots.

I have not installed them yet, so cant comment on the function at this point.

I'm not a big fan of "billet <xxxxx>" as the majority of these items are just overpriced unecesary crap. But these do look nice and it would be awesome to have hinges that moved smoothly without the usual binding. Curious to find out how these work for you.
