I know it isn't really exterior, or interior, but they do boost me 10 HP, lol.

At the risk of sounding like a [email protected], I finally ordered my hood struts and I'm a little upset that there were no instructions. I haven't gone and really looked at it yet but how hard is this to do? Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks.

or here is the text:
install precedure:
1) Installied studs with a 1/2 deep well socket, did not need tap, the studs self started with no problem.

2) Popped the retaining clips off of the top strut with small flat blade screw driver by sliding blade into slot that was made for this purpose.

3. Slid open the plastic retaining on the bottom of the strut, and placed strut
on ball of stud and closed plastic retainer. Note: keep flat plastic retaing clip facing forward

4. Slide top of strut on ball (hood) and reinstalled metal retaining clips

Final: Stand back and enjoy

ADDED STEP: Thank MOPAR SuperCenter for the great parts at a great price !

Look ma no hands, or prop rods!!

Thanks again for the help, it makes a heck of a difference. BTW, this is tough to do with a wrench, no deep sockets here, lol.

Sorry to jack this thread, but I noticed that you have a grill similiar to what I think I want. Can you show any pictures ofthe front end of your car???
Is this grill metal of plastic?

I am looking for a highly polished chrome grill to mach the polished look of my wheels.

EDIT: All I needed to do was look at your first post. That grill looks great!!! I still would like to know if it is metal or plastic? Thanks.

this was the best write up on here about installing the hood struts. I needed a little more detail than, "put 'em on", like most threads said. i have no experience with struts or anything like this so it was very appreciated by this novice. thanks juanvaldz :rockon:


P.S.
the daytona grill insert came in today. I'll be tackling that this weekend.
