YEA PARK AVE. HAVE THE REVERSE HINGES. GO TO THE JUNK YARD AND GET A SET AND START LAYING IT OUT. DONT FORGET U HAVE TO LAY THE TRACKING DOWN AS WELL SO WHEN IT LEANS BACK 2 CLOSE IT HAS A RAIL 2 RUN ON.

This hood was done with the original hinges.

the park ave hinges let the hood open over the front end thought i thing it looks better.

there really isnt steps. u just have to see a actual car with everything in place 2 get the idea. there are 2 hinges in the front of the car with a bar connecting both sides for i guess support. up near the top where on a original car the hinges are, well there is a place where the hood slides on a track. u will have to get the parts and then carefully refabriacate the parts to fit ur hood and frame. And keep in mind homie the top pieces I have seen on park aves are molded as part of the actual car so u might check into the upper slide rails being bought, and then again I may be wrong so check before u buy! when u get the parts off the1st car watch how u disassembl and how they are mounted. follow the pattern just to fit ur ride. Oh yea and one more thing homie take a tape measure and measure the park ave across the tension bar to make sure it will match urs. the hinges can be placed any where but the bar its self can only go so far across, and u want it to support ur hood as well as possiable.
