hood supports

Step 14:  Install pneumatic hood supports to facilitate the showing of under-the-hood.  This replaces the stick previously used.  I picked 30 pound strength supports and could have gone a little stronger.  These will work anyway, they securely hold it in the up position and it is very easy to open and close the hood.


  1. Why does the hood open the wrong way?

  2. So that it will decapitate you in a front-on crash when the nose crumples. Or so they say.
