  • Body / Glass: hood hinge mounting 53 commander

    Has any one tried to replace the studs that are in the back of the hood for the hinges ? Wondering if they are screwed in or welded from the back. Thanks

    Welded from the back. the stud/bolt has a round head with 4 dimples under the head probably resistance welded. Pop always called protrusion welded? there used to be a hand full in a shop i worked at. Luck Doofus

      Sometimes it's possible to grind flat , drill , tap and put a stud in. Stay centered

        My 54 sedan has the same welded studs, Why would you want to replace them?

          Not the OP, but probably the threads are stripped or they are snapped off?
