    Default Calling all ugly hood hinges!- other zinc phophate plating needs

    Hi guys,

    I am going to do a run of hood hinges this spring. Would like to get them to the coating place the last week in April.

    So I need them in the next three weeks.

    For those of you that don't know, for a number of years now I have been stripping/tightening and then properly zinc phosphate coating the hood hinges/ small parts on 65-72 GS's.

    For those wanting just one set of hinges/springs done:

    The service is $115 this year, add another $18 for return shipping to the continental US.

    Payment options:

    Send credit card info with hinges

    Send check with hinges

    Provide Paypal address and I will send you an invoice, or simply paypal to jim@trishieldperformance.com
    __________________________________________________ ___________________________

    For those doing more than 1 set of hinges/springs:

    Cost is $105 per set

    contact me here or via email to determine return shipping cost, and set up payments. Each order will be handled individually.

    PM this username, or email at jim@trishieldperformance.com

    Feel free to place any mark on the backside of the mounting flange that you wish, to insure you get your hinges back. I do mark them when I receive them with a code that corresponds to your information, as we strive to return your parts to you.


    Also, this zinc phosphate is the correct coating for:

    Coil brackets $12
    Alt adjusting arms $10
    hood release turnbuckle/rods $15
    Transmission dipstick tubes $12
    trans control rod/hardware (cross bar to column) $15

    Small parts will be included in hinge return box if possible, or you will be contacted with return price if just doing some small stuff.


    Send the Parts to:

    Here are the available parts, although this picture lighting makes them look darker than they really turn out.



    This is a better picture to determine color..

    Hi Brian,

    The run is scheduled for Feb this year... I will be posting after the new year to put out a call for those interested to send their parts in.

    Thanks
