I know there is a disclaimer about using with a fiberglass hood. I know a few members have these on the FG and CF hoods, but beyond that I know only a little on it. I know of one person that has these on his CF hood, and he made brackets to help spread-out the force on his hood "just-in-case."

I'm still interested, but I still need more pictures. What we have so far is not enough for me.

I have a original hood prop kit from back in the day that requires drilling a hole into the hood and using a insert, that then allowed you to screw in a ball connector for the shock to connect to. Then you replaced one of the fender bolts with another screw in connector.

This kit does not seem to be like that, but what parts exactly are supplied, and what tools are needed?

I put them on a couple weeks ago after reading this thread...they're awesome and easy to do alone. They hold the hood up a bit higher and it's nice not having a pole in the way.

I have 4 friends with these on their cars. Everyone of them loves them. I would be interested in getting a set for my car too if the GB goes thru. They are a breeze to install with a little patience.

I got the O2 sensor socket, never had a need for a rivet gun.

I truly do not understand why people use rivets.
