Our friends at 6LE Designs are at it again – coming up with interesting and revolutionary new ways to keep our cars looking fresh and modern. After receiving an email from our friend and owner of 6LE Designs, Mark Delisle, we were informed about their new aluminum hood hinges for 4th-Gen F-body and Pontiac G8!
Made out of lightweight aluminum in a durable design, these are perfect for those of you with failing hood shocks, aftermarket fiberglass hoods, or if you simply want a modern race car look to your Camaro, Firebird or G8. Learn more below!
1993-2002 Camaro/Firebird Aluminum Hood Hinges
We designed these off of the race cars CMJ (our fabricator) runs for our G8 GXP. They replace the struts COMPLETELY. Just lift and they lock. Lift again, slide forward and they unlock!
These aluminum hood hinges do save some weight, but mostly they are intended to be WAY easier to work around and save money as you’ll never have to replace a worn out strut again! GREAT for aftermarket fiberglass hoods where stock struts are too strong and warp the fiberglass – these never will!!!!
These aluminum hinges arrive at your door in raw aluminum and are 100% made in the USA. If you’re interested in having them powdercoated or anodized, please e-mail us a detailed description of how you want them modified and to discuss additional pricing. We typically keep them in stock, but due to a rise in popularity, please expect 2-4 weeks to ship to be safe.
- Your car loses a few pounds
- Never have to buy a traditional hood shock again
- Allows for more room to work under the hood
- Gives your 4th-gen or G8 a modern, race car look and feel
