I can wait as long as it takes you. Sounds like you are going to hit it from every angle. Thanx for the help. The holes that iv seen in pics look like they are almost square. I would think a round hole is going to have to work.
that's awesome! thanks so much! people from Tudorpostville rock!
my eyesight isn't the greatest; can i confirm what i think i see on the lower left? holes are 5/8" x 1/4" tall, and the center of the hole is 7/16" from the bottom of the hood lip? sorry for my blindness!
Wow Flyer your the man! I too needed this as I have a 65 hood on my 63... I don't know if you got my PM but I was talking with Dave H when he got the front doors from my 65 four door but he said you may want the backs. Let me know and thanks for the insight on the hood trim holes again!
Thanx Flyer- Now to get up the balls to drill into the hood. I'll make it out first and see how the pins line up with the marks that I make. At least I have the hardware to install it on the new hood.Speaking of that is there a certain way that the clip goes or I will be able to figure it out.
yeah, 5/8 tall x 1/4 wide, 7/16 off the bottom lip.
yeah, i could use the doors for the wagon project! :thumbsup:
i'll get the '64 hood holes maybe tomorrow, those are all i have. the '64 & '63 hoods... as far as the clips, i don't think there are clips per se, i think it'd be nuts & washers for the '63 hood, the '64 takes a clippie...
the top image shows the holes underside of the hood for the nut hardware access...does your hood have the underside holes? unsure if all the under-bracing is the same, trim and no trim...
btw, we were in wisconsin (green bay) visiting relatives and almost came home with a 350/4spd 63 impala (post) the guy was trying to GIVE away ($1500 and woulda gone lower!). you guys have some sweet deals there! too bad we were driving a minivan...
