    Hood prop hinge spring color?

    Was the the hood prop spring painted body color? I assume they were. I am thinking of leaving the spring portion unpainted.

    I assume you mean the spiral spring on the pieces that hold the hood open(?) If so, they were painted body color originally.

    I painted mine textured Mopar azurite grey, I think it is a nice contrast to body color
