  • Hood hinge torsion bars

    Does anyone know what the finish was on hood hinge torsion bars when they came out of the factory. They look black in the FSM but that is in black and white. Were they black, body colour or just plain bare steel.

    Also, any hints on how to re-install the torsion bars.

    Thanks

    I'm pretty sure they were black in my 75 Z (which I bought new and then sold a year or so later... . Not sure about re-install.

      ​Thanks. I found some posts on classiczcar that also indicate black is the correct color.

        Well reinstalling the torsion bars was pretty easy. Getting the hood to line up is another story. The gaps are all good but it is still a bit high in the front. The hinges are in the original position and there is not much room for adjustment in the hood bolts. Funny, I can push it down flush with my hand which may indicate it is a tension issue. Oh well, it's a long winter. I'm sure I will figure it out.
