Hi Hesh, had this set-up for awhile now. Works and looks as good as the day installed. Here's my original post for the MRT Hood Struts for our car.Hesh said:Does anyone have any experience with the aftermarket hood hinge add-ons that allow the hood to stay "up" without use of the rod ?
Thanks for any help forthcoming !
topbliss said:these are what I have. They powercoat the brackets to your body color so they look 100% oem.. no holes to drill, take 10 mins to install and work perfect. The best that I have seen out there..
The struts exert upward force (which causes the hood to raise automatically) upon opening. To close you have to reach up and gently lower the hood manually (just like hoods use to be back in the day) and then push smartly to lock in place. No big deal.Madpoodle said:Since the hood latch is a bit, errr, tempermental , I usually drop it to close it in order not to dent it.. How does that work with the strut kits?
