Well that was a great idea but unfortunately when you flip it around, it does not line up with the bolt holes and center latch tab. (photo attached).  I re-installed it the way it was and it is a little better but still droops forward.  I guess I can soak it overnight in Viagra water and see if it will stand up straighter!

Update. I meet the man who beat me in the original auction. He bought it to take the wheels off for his 49. He sold it to a guy in California who only wanted what was left of the seats.

Steven,
Thanks so much for the photo and suggestion on how to keep it from flopping forward.  I will flip it around and see what happens.  Your attention to detail is obvious every time I look at your gorgeous car and I am not the least surprised that you noticed the hinges. The dark green hood hinges have bothered me ever since I have owned the car but was somewhat reluctant to change them as I thought possibly they were factory installed.  When I purchased this low mileage car in 2015 from the second owner it was 100% original, nothing had been touched under the hood except for normal wear items that had been replaced. I was kind of waiting for someone to let me know if these hinges were incorrect, and now I have it.  I trust your knowledge on these cars so I will eventually get them painted or switched out so that they will be black. Thanks again!  Doug

Doug, If yours is flopping forward then uninstall it, flip it around and reinstall it. It should then flop toward the engine like it should. Here is how it should be installed and look from my car. Steven

FYI: Your hood hinge springs should be gloss black.

I purchased a reproduction rubber radiator seal/shield for my 1961.  I have seen this installed in so many different ways, that I am not sure which way is correct.  I have attached a couple of photos. One is how I have it currently installed in my car which as you can see tends to flop forward. The second photo (not my car)  shows it laying down, covering the top of the radiator. The second photo looks more correct than how I have mine installed, but possibly neither is correct. Need you experts to weigh in on the correct way.  Thanks, Doug
