69-70 GT350/500 help needed
« on: October 15, 2019, 09:23:13 AM »
If you own a 69-70 GT, could someone please check your car and provide me the dimension (as shown in the attachment) of the driver side hood pin bracket. I need the measurement from the mounting side of the bracket to the center of the latch opening.  If all else fails, fabricate.  Wish me luck.

I do appreciate the offer.  Branda, along with EVERYONE else, no longer has them. The manufacturer died and no one is reproducing them.  I have one side coming and was going to fab up the other side.  I just want to make sure of the dimensions before I make it.  I may take you up on your offer, but right now, what I am looking for is the dimensions for the driver side, just in case it is different than the passenger side.  Better to be safe than not have it fit properly

+1 . With one side you will have the dimensions to make the other side.

Thanks Bob.  I just wasn't sure and I didn't want to take a chance.  Did you receive my email?
