EXT: hood props

well this is for the people that dont like the factory hood props, for these are known to get in the way when ur working in the middle of the engine bay, epecialy when the dont have the rubbers at each end the tend to slip and it gets annoying when the hood falls in ur head


tools needed:

1 10mm wrench
2 pair of 92' acura legend hood props (got mine for 6 bucks)
3 tap and die set
4 drill and bit
5 12mm open wrench


first step: drill and tap a hole in the middle of the hanger and screw in the pivoting part of the shock, and use the 12mm wrench to tighten it



second step: use a 10mm wrench and unscrew, the the middle fender bolt,

third step
: put the bracket part of the shock where the hole is and screw the bolt back up



fourth step
: repeat and enjoy



the hood closes just fine, didnt have no interventions with the hood, shock, and engine bay

Does it matter whether the props come from a coupe or sedan?

You could always buy new arms at an auto parts store...

Not sure of prices, but i imagine them to be fairly cheap. I just wouldnt know what thickness or length to get.

This has been one of my plans, but I'm just going to get a new shock or 2 at the local auto store (10-15 ea). You need to drill another hole and secure the other space b/c the movement of that hinge will cause problems with use. Still it's great.

anyone know how many lbs these shocks are? (shock pressure not actual weight ) then we can go pick new ones up without going through some wrong sets

in the vid they wobble cuz they're not hold by anyting but the hold

to perfect the DIY u have to get a nut on the other side and tighten it

BTW the bracket that goes to the fender doenst need another bold one holds just fine, that way i can adjust opening level of the hood, i could use the 1rst one for a lower hood, or the 2nd for more opening,

BTW these shocks are very strong, (not like the hood is heavy but i cant push one down with my hands)

so then do you think only ONE is needed for a CF hood? it weighs about 20 lbs less than an OEM metal hood.

definitely not use 2 just for safety cuz even though the carbon fiber hood weighs less it flexes more when the wind blows if you have your hood up. So if i was me and i just got my hood looking good like you have i would use 2. Besides why only one it would look funny
