50-52 Buick hood locator pin length


Recommended Posts

Hello:
Does anyone know the length of hood locator pin on a ’50-52 Buick as measured from the backing plate to the tip of the pin?  see photo below.

I’ve got an early production ’50 Buick with the 1st type of hood hinges and I’m in the process of replacing them with the latter 2nd series.  I’m fabricating the locking plates that are welded to the hood, but don’t know the length of the pins.

Thanks.
