They look very nice Steve, but being pedantic are they not "shortened" hinges rather than "extended"?

Hello All,
These hinges have their purpose, but aren't a panacea for all bonnet gap woes. The OP of the Thread in the JL Forum would have had further problems down the track had he gone the modified hinge route and not sought and remedied the actual cause of his excessive bonnet gap.

Regards,

Bill

As the op of the thread in question I can second Bill’s comment. Thanks to his advice I was able to correct the problem without resorting to an expensive set of new modified hinges or the difficult task of welding extra material to the rear of the bonnet.
