By accident bidding on ebay on the hood hinge ends same as the B series Mack trucks that fit 31 / 32 Durant / Fronty (and DeVaux ? Can't tell in pics if DeVaux had rod or hinge strip)I discovered another source in Frank's backyard, almost, for the Mack strip and ends.
Watt's Mack dealer in PA sells the parts as I mentioned in forum before. I asked the seller if he has the hinge strip, sure does and you can get it clean or dirty. Clean is still in the plastic and dirty is out of the plastic so dulled a bit from sitting on the shelf. All NOS he's picked up. Probably has more end parts as well. Calls himself kingofsalvage on Ebay. Chuck (Charles) Roser.

I'm having him cut the 50 + inch strip to 34 inch for mailing and will cut it a bit smaller, to fit Dorothy, myself. Seems to be a difference in hood length by an inch more Canadian D's to US.
