Hello Herb. I have a 73 Dart 340 Sport which has a fiberglass hood. It is rapidly showing the signs of turning into a ruffled potato chip. I understand that you sell the products and installing tips to install these things. Could I get some more info.
I know this is a site devoted to A body stuff but I saw you made some of those circular style hood springs and I was curious if you could possibly do the same for my G body. 1980 Malibu. Please let me know!
Got to thinking it would cost the same to send you a used box or a new one. So we checked fastenal and they said stop by and they would match it up. But then checked Graingers and they showed it and I was within blocks of it this morning. So I stopped to check. They didn't have it either, but could order it. The young gal on the counter looked it up and found they could get it and since I get to buy on ford account and get discount told me since they didn't have it could ship it. I ask how much and again since it is on ford account free shipping.
So a no brainier to send you a new box since shipping would have been more than the wire anyway. PLUS since it is tempered steel and will be harder to bend than stainless welding wire I also got you a box of .051 wire to make it easier to shape and it should be strong enough to do the job.
