  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Hi. I'm working on getting the original hood back on my Tempest. There's a fiberglass hood on there now. I'm struggling with the pop up spring. Can anyone tell me the proper mounting procedure? The shop manual has no information about it, and the car was missing this hardware so I'm starting from scratch.

I'm unsure if the spring goes on top of the fascia, with bolts through the spring loops & into fascia. When doing this, the spring won't budge, and the bolts pop right out of the body clips.
Another option I've tried is having the spring go through the ends of the body clips?  Does anything need to go under the fascia?  Here are two photos -- is either method correct? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
