    Thumbs up1953 Ford F100 Bonnet Forward Tilt Mechanism - plans or measurements needed

    Having the usual problems on my F100 with bonnet fit.
    Forward tilt kits are available but buying one is way beyond my budget.
    So I want to make one. It looks pretty simple but a few dimensions would be a great help - no point re-inventing one if the basic info can be found.
    If any kind person out there has one on their truck and would be prepared to send me a few dimensions and a photo I'll buy them a pint.

    It was about 25 years ago but we fitted Saab 99 bonnet hinges to my old 55 it was a bit of messing about but it worked well.i can’t find any with the bonnet up but worth a look at an old Saab see what you think.
