Where the hinges attach to the hood, I had developed a persistent crack....so this morning I began trying to separate the hood skin from the under part in order to repair this once and for all. All was going well until I got to the part where the hood hinges bolt. I seem to be hitting something metal. It is not the hood hinge 'bolt' area itself, but just forward of that. I was not aware of any metal there. Can anyone help or offer any suggestions. I am really at a loss...
