C12 Owners

Post by bbvette » Mon Nov 12, 2018 12:00 pm

If any C12 owners have these hood hinges, I need some help with pictures of the passenger side showing the strut. I understand some C12s had these hinges and some had the factory ones. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :jsmile

Thank you!! :beer :beer

I do have another question, and this may help me solve my problem, I noticed there's one strut on the hinges and not one on the other side. Did the come with 1 or 2 struts?

That hood strut was ones of Reeves’ favorite part of the car. I remember hearing him talk about how excited the deal was for him.

Does anyone recall the background on these? Just curious why some cars have them and some dont.
