Hood hinge to inner fender bolts

Post by 71Beeper » Sun Apr 26, 2020 10:38 am

What is the thread size for the fasteners that hold the hood hinge to the inner fender?
Is it the same 5/16 thread that used to hold the hood to the hinges?
Its for my Runner.
I'm taking the hood and hinges over to the body shop next Saturday.
He's going to need them to mount them to the car.

I broke two of my original bolts as they were seized and the other two I can't find now.... :mad:

Thanks in advance.

I know the hood bolts are a larger dia. thread than the hinge to fender bolts which if memory serves they are 1/4-20. I can verify in the morning for you if you still need this info.

I'm pretty sure that the hinge to inner fender bolts are the same as the fender to inner fender bolts which are 5/16-18NC thread. So the next size up thread would be the 3/8-16NC thread.
