Those will definitely work. You will have to step out the pivot points on the lower mounts. You will also have to bend your lower mounting plate to accept the angle of the front trunk.

You guys think audi hinges look similar? It looks like that flat mounting piece could easily be fabbed to match the triangle on the inner hood.
Then put on a longer shock like oem.

I have them on my A8 but didn't get to taking them off yet.
Will update.

Strut would be too small for me I was going to attach a longer one to look like oem struts

looks nice do you know what gm's are they found on?
I just got my inner hood and I was trying to figure out if the hinges will mount to it like oem does. Mount on the raised triangle piece on both sides of the panel. It's hard to find close of pictures of this.

Well I met a local fellow by the name of Kelly Hayes. He was a replica car builder a he gave me a nice tour of his shop. He pulled out a few things and he also pulled out the hinges he used. Let me tell you this hinges are what I WILL be using. They have the shock mounts on the hinge itself and they are totally adjustable!

Not a big deal guys... look what I just bought  http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160798572967

I little less than $56 USD shipped to the USA.

I think these hinges look perfect for this application enough that I just had to have a set.  Thank you for sharing this information and your car is coming along excellent... please keep the pictures coming.

thankfully watson has a front hinge conversion setup for MR2 hinges. Thank goodness! That saved me $350 from spending on stupid piece of metal.
