Could anyone kindly supply a photo of the trunk hinges of a 69 Convert? Need to see exactly where the rods go, car was painted and the trunk lid does not stay up?
Thanks:confused:

The torsion bars have been put on wrong. There is a right and a left side, if you put the bars on the wrong side, there is not enough torque to hold the deck lid open. Rmove the torsion bars and reinstall on the opposite side. You will also find the bars are harder to install when installed correctly, as they have much more tension. Learned this on out vert.
