hinges are somewhat easy to put back in place if it is slightly off. I would put the stock hood back on first and see how it fits. If it is off you can used the stock hood to help re adjust the hinge. If your not sure how to get it back find someone that worked/s in a body shop. You might even be able to tweak the hinge to get the new hood to fit even if the stock one fits fine.

Sweet wheels, are you sure they are knock-offs? I have three that look just like that and they are actual Enkeis. I wish I could find one more. Don't have a spare do you?

I am fairly sure. The guy I bought them from was the original owner. He called them "American wheels". They have no identifying marks on them whatsoever. No stickers, no engravings, no raised areas, no JWL marking.

I had a set of Enkeis that looked nearly exactly the same. Both sets were 15x7" +0, but the Enkeis were clearly identifiable.

Those last few pics make me really miss my old supra. I do have a few extra hinges laying around some where if you might need some.

Haven't had any corollas, but believe it or not, I have some corolla parts laying around. :lol: One of the advantages of living in a state that doesn't place a high valve on vintage japanese tin is, they are cheap when you find them. Of course, the downside is since they aren't valued much, there are a lot of JNCs in junkyards for simple stuff that end up being crushed. Not to mention, a lot of old Toyotas share parts, so I stockpile when I see them in the junkyards.

Unfortunately that fitment issue is standard for carbon hoods. I have never installed a carbon hood that fit correctly. They are always "close" like yours is. They always take a ton of tweaking to get just right. Now that i mention it, i dont think i have even ever seen one in person that would pass my level of standards for fitment. Believe me yours isnt that bad either.

Haha that's what I keep hearing/reading. Idk, I probably wouldn't be this irate over it if my car was maybe a different color, but the gaps stick out to me as if it were neon underglow or something.

Blah!
