I don't know about other years, but the 1989 Spider hood is held in place on the hinge by 4 10mm nuts. The nuts screw onto studs on a slip plate beneath the hood's sheet metal underside. The right 2 came off with out issue, but the left 2 wrung off despite my soaking them with WD-40. I then discovered that the studs were attached to a sliding plate, with no way to access it easily to remediate the broken studs. My only thought has been to make 2 parallel cuts to the sheet metal underside, bend it up, remove the plate and remediate with appropriate bolts, and then reweld the sheet metal with my MIG. Does anyone have any other alternative approaches as I can't be the only person to have faced this unfortunate circumstance. Thanks in advance.
