No more hood prop rod!

If you havent seen it already this is a must have for ANY car owner. FF Authorized Vendor Shade-010 is selling the Redline Tuning Hood Strut Kit with Free Shipping.

The Install was quick and painless took all of about 10 min and no more pesky Hood Prop!

Now to the Pics!






And yes I know my engine bay is dirty.

The Kit comes with the 2 hood struts, mounting hardware, and Color easy to read directions. Well worth the $$$ Very happy I made this purchase.

What is the damage for a set of these babies? I love my Ti, but nothing feels cheaper than a hood rod on a top of the line car.

I open my hood twice a year. Once to change the oil, once to check it.
Since I only drive 4,000 miles a year...
But it DOES look nice. for folks who like to show what they got, it would be a must.

I'm the same way, but eh, I still ordered it.

Awesome. Thanks for sharing Skypilot!

EDIT: I wish this would have been available before my K&N Typhoon seal was permanently dented by the prop rod...

I open my hood at every fill up to check fluids and do a quick inspection. These are absolutely worth the money.

$90 total when you buy from Shade-010 they also offer elite struts which as far as I can tell are just chrome and cost more.

The Elites are polished stainless.
