    Default smooth Inner gaurds on HQ-HZ

    Hey guys I did some searching on this but couldn't really find much....

    I'd like to cut/weld up the grooves on my inner guards, but I would also like to retain the original Bonnet hinges.

    I have seen it done before, but I've also hear alot of people saying the hinges will hit the guards.

    I've attached a pic of a car I saw at motorex that has the guards smoothed whilst retaining stock hinges (or maybe they are torana hinges or something?

    So Question is - Anyone here done it and want to share how to acheive this?

    I think that's a myth, as far as I know the hinges will clear with no issues as per the pic you posted. This is based off what others have told me, I haven't done it myself.

    LH-LX Torana hinges are the same as HQ, LC-LJ and HK-T-G are similar but different. They're HQ type hinges in the pic.

    Not hard to check, fill the hole with play-do level with the top and shut the bonnet and see if it hits, if it doesn't hit put a bit more on and test again til it does hit the play-do and you'll see how much clearance you have.
