Broken Hood Stud

2008 Views 4 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  boominup
I am getting an 03 cobra hood for my GT and it has a broken stud. It sticks out about 1/4 inch. Are they threaded into the hood or will I have a tough time replacing the stud?

I answered the same question in the "talk" section to someone else.....

Looks to me like you've got plenty of meat left on the stud to grind a bevel on the end, also on the end of a new stud and mig weld it on. If it were mine I sure would give it a try. If you were closer, I'd also give it a shot...what have you got to lose? Do you know any welders in your area that know what they are doing? As far as welding a repair stud on, this job only looks worse than it is. A good weld will be stronger than the stud itself!
