I was curious on what kind of mod would be involved to get your hood to go all the way back..I dont have a hood prop so when i work on my car I either take off the hood or use a piece of wood to hold it..Problem is sometimes its in the way and iam afraid Iam gonna hit it and boom there goes the hood right on my head :)

I usually just take a piece of rope and run it from the driver's side window frame, through the hood latch piece, and to the passenger's side window frame. Just keep the rope loose-ish, but not extremely loose, and don't move the rope around like a saw and your paint will be fine.

Umm I see potential damage. If you ask me, you should get hood dampers. They are not very expensive, and will do you a world of good.

Sometimes its just easier to take the hood off, if you have an extra pair of hands.

looks into the hydrolic hood dampners, like on the acura CL, first gen. might even be an easy swap.
