    Hood Hinge Boot Cover?

    Hi: Does anyone know if there is a metal plate cover that goes over the hood hinge boot in a stock SVO? I remember seeing a 'stainless steel' cover plate being sold that goes between the boot and the hinge. Not sure if a stock SVO had such a metal plate or what I saw was nothing more than an aftermarket 'dress up' option. If "stock" is just the rubber boot/hood hinge combination then I don't want to buy this unnecessary "bling" for the engine compartment. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure anything stainless steel would be aftermarket.

    The metal part of the hood hinge sandwiches the rubber boot with the cowl.
    Here is a pic from my 82 GT, SVO should be the same:
