Does anyone have plans or drawings for a tilt frontend?
Hi, I was wondering if anyone out there has any plans or drawings of a good tilt front end hinge set up that I could use on my '47 Chevy Coupe? It is the car pictured in my avatar. I am debating making the entire front end into a tilt front end, but I am having trouble finding a good set up for the hinges. I have worked with cars for years, but this is the first time I have ever thought of making a tilt front end on one, so I'd appreciate any suggestions I can get. I found a picture of one that is very similar to what mine would be (see pic below) but it does not have any good pics of the hinges themselves, so I still am not able to get much of an idea of how to go about building them.
