Hi All,

Have 1950 Champion hood hinges that have worn/loose rivets and so hood closes hard and wobbles a lot when up. Hinge rebuilders in Hemmings are into total restoration and off my map expense wise for my Drivers.

I need somebody that will recenter and replace the rivets so they work better.

Any known Studebaker sources? All tips & thoughts appreciated.

Just about any machine shop can do this; I'm having one redo my
door hinges. They have the right equipment.
