When you see a vehicle with a forward tilting hood that’s hinged at the front, it makes an impression. Classic sports cars of all makes have used this method of accessing the engine bay since the dawn of the automobile, and the uniqueness and style of this look never goes out of fashion. While front-hinged hoods add unique style to your vehicle, they can actually make working on today’s crowded engine bays easier. AutoLoc lets you reverse the arc of your vehicle’s hood with the Tilt Hood Kit. It gives you reliable hardware that resists corrosion, and reinforced steel hinges built far sturdier than necessary to ensure zero flexing or misalignment of the hood panel.
With the Tilt Hood Kit, you’ll get gas struts that work with the hinges to ensure smooth, gliding operation. Floating brackets and adjustable mounting holes make it easy to align the hood for a perfect fit that will stay that way as the miles and years roll by. Plus, there’s even the option to add electric sliding actuators which automatically raise and lower the hood automatically. AutoLoc recommends professional installation of Tilt Hood kits, and all components are warrantied with a limited lifetime warranty against failures due to manufacturing defects.250.00 1,214.89

Founded in 1992 in Portland, Oregon, AutoLoc® Power Accessories has always focused on the automotive enthusiast who sees his or her automobile as a blank canvas and unique customization of it as artistry. From their earliest days, AutoLoc focused on accessories for cars and trucks that set vehicle owners apart from the crowd. Frustrated with the poor quality of most conversion kits for re-hinging doors, hoods, and trunklids, AutoLoc engineers sought to bring a higher level of fit and finish to the world of automotive customization products. As positive word of mouth spread about AutoLoc’s well-engineered and well-made products that worked and fit like OEM equipment, a loyal customer base grew exponentially. Today, AutoLoc offers conversion kits for Lambo doors, suicide doors, flip-flop trunk hinges, split hood hinges as well as kits that add power operation to tonneau covers, door security enhancements, and even enhanced remote controllability for air suspension systems. AutoLoc products have been used and endorsed by Pimp My Ride and Monster Garage among many automotive custom shops, and CARiD offers best prices on a wide range of those AutoLoc products. We’re happy to help you with specialists available seven days a week to answer any product inquiries.Product Reviews (1)

Product is great in value and seems to fit the new double lined hood, not the classics like the 50 Chev y or 57 and later Dodge with only top sheet metal. The engineering for the older vehicle like the Chevy and Dodge is very costly.6 people found this review helpful.Was this review helpful for you? YesNoShare this review:
