    Owners that have Dodge installed black hoods. can you take some pics or report if it looks like hinges have been painted black from the cars original colour or new black hinges where also replaced when the hoods was changed out. A couple of us at the plant where curious what they where doing to the hinges.

    Looked at two cars already and they look like a raw hinge was painted black and one almost looked like a powder coat

    So you would guess that hinges have been replaced along with the hoods then

    Wish I could give more but that would involve me walking up to a production black hood car and chipping the hinge paint with a razor and that won't happen

    No would never want you to do something like that. Just wondered if they repainted them on the car you might see an area they missed and original colour showing.

    The hood is removed from the car with factory hinges and painted as one
