|CIRCULAR STYLE SPRINGS
706 are for medium weight hoods that bolt to
hinges in the back and use hood pins in the front. If you are using a heavier style
bolt-on hood that uses the front latch, then you must have slightly stronger springs #906
(Malibu) or #908 (Monte Carlo). Circular springs replace the original factory
springs and allow the hood to stay in the raised position when opened. Circular springs
are not plated but, have a rust resistance black finish. Plating is not recommended
for these high tensile type springs.
Quality hood pins are a must when attaching a fiberglass hood. Inferior hold downs could allow the front of the hood to lift and cause damage to the hood. Unlimited offers a complete hood pin package that includes pins (1/2" diameter), nuts washers, clips and screws. All parts are either chrome or stainless steel. $14.95 pair
301 springs are for front latching style fiberglass hoods. This spring allows the hood to 'pop' up slightly when the latch is pulled or released. This feature allows you to 'grab' the front edge of the hood to open it. This specially designed spring is ideal for Unlimited's front latching hood. The spring easily bolts to the existing 'pop' up spring location on the radiator support or on the hood itself. Original factory pop up is too strong for fiberglass hoods. $5.00 (includes mounting hardware)
Springs are available for most hoods. All springs feature full plating for proper rust protection. End loops are extended on the 703 and 903 to fit the 70-81 Camaro hinges. All fiberglass hoods that attach to hinges must use low tension springs or no springs (prop rod must then be used). The standard hinge springs cannot be used with a fiberglass hood, which have a much lower weight and require a matching hinge spring. Unlimited offers a range of low tension springs that are specially designed for our lightweight hoods. When ordering springs, please specify make and model of car. If you are ordering a hood and springs, we will always ship the proper springs for the hood ordered. Original springs can be removed with vise grips or by heating. Low tension springs can be easily installed with standard pliers, and the fit to the stock hinges. $19.95 pair to $21.95 pair

E-600 Edge Trim, rubber, black. For fiberglass edges
up to 1/8" thick.
CR-933 overall length is 39". Made from 5/16" diameter steel rod. For use in applications where hoods cannot use hinge springs.
Fully protected for corrosion resistance, comes with 1" swivel attached to the base for bolting to the radiator support. Upper end has adjustable collar (not shown) for inserting into hood slot. This rod can be used on almost any hood in place hood springs.
Fits almost any hood, but designed for hoods that originally did not have hood springs like mini-trucks and smaller cars.
|Front latch style hoods have provision for latching the front down
just like the original.
Front latching hoods cost more because they have extra steel reinforcements made into them.
The other style (pin down) uses racing type hood pins to hold down the front. These cannot be converted to a latching style.
You must drill holes in the front area of the hood for the pins, the pins attach to the radiator core support.
Both styles (latching and pin type) bolt to the original hinges in the rear. Bolts are included. Hood hinge springs must be removed and replaced with our low tension springs or a prop rod.
