Hood Hinge Question

Spent a few hours cutting the good set of springs this afternoon. Hopefully I can get them welded on Monday. Pain in the butt trying to get a straight cut with a hacksaw. Did the same as the other set. Removed 9/16" from each arm.
Once the welds are done, into the blast cabinet they go. Then a quick coat of epoxy primer. Probably a coat of Cast Blast or a similar color.

So are you guys re-tapping the threads on the nut on the fender? Or just running the ball stud in. I noticed the threads are different.

the ball stud should be the same thread as the fender bolt that came out.

Melloelky is correct. Thread size is the same. You can get the metric thread balls at autozone. When I bought them they were on one of those spinning help racks.

Yes you are correct, they turned a little hard at first and was worried but they did thread right in. Thanks!!
