My imperial has worn hood hinges. I am looking for a source to rebuild them. Any ideas? Thanks

As far as I have seen the Forward Look hood hinges are four bar linkages with the links pinned to a frame which is bolted to the body structure.

Here are two examples:

One from Powerflite:



One from Macedon:



I don't know what part of your hinge is worn but if it is the pins and it was me, I would drill off the back of the "pin" (more like a rivet) and remove the pin. Then I would drill out the hole until it matched just a bit less than outside diameter of these hinge pin bushings like one these from Dorman (comes with the needed flat head bolt and nyloc nut in the kit) and then install the bushing, the bolt and the nut. Done (I hope).

The Dorman kit:
