    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?
            "I'm a dude playing a dude, disguised as another dude"
            "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."

            Romans 10:9

                      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
