Just did this today. Picked up both props for $10. We chose to drill with a 3/8 and use a nut on the backside since the hinge is so thin. Works perfectly, thanks for the DIY.

So, for those "pitch" and bolt challenged....

This is basically:
Legend props
-OR-
18mm 350mm/225mm props
10mm/12mm bolts

1 bolt on the fender
drill/tap into prop ball
bolt to hood

Correct?

Anybody do this to their trunk? I have a 91 for my daughter, and someone took the springs to make room for 6x9's. If not I will try to do a DIY when I do it. I'm not messing with putting j/y springs back in there. Kind of a pain

I got a pair of hood shocks from an Acura Legend the other day, with brackets. I played around with positioning them for nearly an hour and found no way that I could possibly make them fit without having them hit the closed hood.


I'm not getting it.

That said,

this is probably what I'm going to do. I already know where I'll mount the shock, and ideally, I'll hook an alarm solenoid up to my trunk release cable so I can remotely open my trunk. The gas shocks seem to really put out a lot of thrust, so I guess I'm a little weary to use them on my poor trunk latch. But, we'll see.

Maybe I'll do it this weekend if we finish painting my new trunk lid.

It may not be too bad. I dont know about the coupe but the 4 door trunk is heavier to open than I thought it would be. It all depends on mounting where it will have enough leverage to lift without throwing it open. I need to clear out my trunk, and do some measuring. open and closed to get an idea what length shocks to get and mark mounting points. It'll probably take longer to clear out my trunk.

bringin it back....
did this today, very exciting, I love it...

one thing not mentioned, but can be found with a little research is drill bit size.
use a 17/64 drill bit. then you 8mm x 1.25 thread pitch tap
above numbers are for the legend shocks. if you use something else this might be different.

nice DIY!

nice write up! I did mine a couple years ago using hood shocks from a chrysler sebring, and ball mounts from a Mazda 3 decklid hinge and a pickup truck topper hatch. It basicly came together like yours only I welded everything in. Nice job

any evidence of the hood buckling just in front of the hood support hinges?
I'd like to try this, but my concerns are that there could be too much torque on the hinges and make the hood buckle when you try to close it.

just thinkin' aloud.
