Need new/used hood hinges (?)

Anyone know where I can get a straight pair of hood hinges for a W123 (1980) ??

My hood blew up in a wind storm a few weeks ago, and the hood hit the windshield. Not to mention dropped itís back corners into the vent/ wiper deck. I got it to close, but it sits too low now in the back now when closed. From what Iíve been told, the hinges are bent (ďsprungĒ).

Any ideas/experiences/information on this matter is greatly appreciated.

Iíll post this on the diesel page as well.

I've replaced the hood hinges n a w123 and they are not easy to align with the "new " ones- from the junk yard. Mind you they worked find at the yard- and the hood sat perfect. On a different car they were a ***** to align. I could get some but it'll be next week.

The same thing happened to LandSearAir two weeks ago....
