Hey guys,

Has anyone here added gas hood struts to allow the hood to free stand? My hood holdup is missing the grommet holding it in place on the right side of the engine bay, and I'm not really pleased with the amount of hood clearance that allows me.

I have them. Plenty of ways to go about it. Creativity is key.

To get you started, I used a kit similar to this.

The threaded-studs replace one of the fender bolts, and then use the screw-stud to tap into the hood

1. Beware of space/clearance -make sure the hood can close; space is tight.

2. Make sure you're tapping into a reinforced-area on the hood - or else it will eventually wriggle it self out after so many opening/closings.
