Mykks' install of the Autoloc tilt hood hinge kit
I thought I would post up the most recent modification to my 2004 Silvy. Installing a Autoloc tilt hood hinge kit. Or as I call it, the Suicide Hood. (cause it sounds cooler)
I am finding myself at more shows & cruise ins, and I wanted to do something to seperate myself from the crowd. And here it is...
The Autoloc kit: part # tilthd
Step one: Find where you're going to mount the brackets. I, obviously, needed them to be on the radiator support. I intended to weld the brackets to the support until I found out the rad support is aluminum and the brackets are powder coated steel.
Step 2, Mock up:
Remeber the old rule, measure a million times to cut once, this project is no exception.
A mock up of how the whole hinge assembly will sit.
This is when I discovered a hood clearance issue with the location of the heim joints. So I needed to flip the brackets around to move the joints back an inch.
Vortec 357ci Small Block Chevy: Big cam, high stall, long headers, rear gears. The typical formula.
