Its a single, I'm thinking of changing it to a 8" double chrome unit.  I'm thinking about only running the top part of my hood as the hinges are bad on the right side until I can find a better one.

   If the hinges are bad  is there any chance of cutting the hinges out and replacing with stainless steel hinges for the sides.just a thought has any one tried this

I haven't looked at it that close, but I want to say it is part of the hood. Like they rolled the loop of the hinge in the sheet metal I need to look closer,  been putting on fenders and running boards, and making brackets to support my grille shell.

Keep looking for a better one, side panels will always line up with stock top panels.

I've looked at it closer and the hinges are part of the sheet metal, what I,m thinking about doing is cutting the side panels off and fixing them so that they are semi permanent and only be able to raise the top two sections of the hood.

I have been working on the front splash apron trying to get it to fit, I'm going to have to modify it to clear the rack & pinion. I will post pictures this weekend after I get all the fiberglass laid.

A fix similar to what vette59jdwl suggested is to cut the hinge out and tack in piano hinge, you can get them as long as you need them and they appear solid.
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn

I don't believe a piano hinge will work after it is tacked into place it will not be able to be folded back on it self like the original hinge would.

Here's how I modified my fiberglass apron to fit over my rack & pinion. Still need to remove and add more glass for strength.

Great job!  I love working glass, all except for the itch when you put on a jacket,  and thebig mess it leaves on the floor. Looks like your getting close to a driver.
