Levin Hood Issue

Postby Gabriel82 » Mon Jul 15, 2019 8:17 pm

Hi everyone,

I recently got my hands on a levin hood. I'm trying to mount it and it looks like my chassis has a hook welded to the body that grooves into the oem trueno hood? Does this need to be chopped off?

Assuming you have everything it should be a straight swap. have a picture to see what you're talking about?

Kiosk - you were right. It was a two man job lining it up but it fit and stopped making contact with that stopper/hook looking thing.

FWIW those hook things are there to help stop the hood coming thru the windscreen
and cutting your hair when you have a decent frontal impact :)

not all aftermarket hoods have the holes cut. youre supposed to cut a hole in the hood, to match the oem hood, so the hook can go in.
haha cali...i got one of your 86's and you're not getting it back.
