Has anyone used rivet nuts in the hood to attach it to the hinges instead of riveting it directly to the hinges.
Thanks Bob

If you do so be positive that they are fully expanding when installed. I have a car with me right now which the owner used them---3 of 8 didn't grab and pulled out. Use 3/16" by 1/2" rivets and you'll be golden.

I used rivnuts on my hood and trunk hinges and they worked great. Like Jeff said, make sure they are expanded properly.
