I know I'm a 6 day "newbie" with my Red #1375 but this cheesy hood prop has me concerned already. Is it as flimsy as it looks or does it do a good job of holding the hood open? This may have already been discussed in more detail so pls. let me know if my fears aren't warranted. Is there any type of hydraulic strut available to replace the factory prop? I just thought a car of this quality and price would have had a more "substantial" prop rod. I love my SSR and not trying to nitpick but I'd hate to have that heavy hood fall on me while I'm tinkering around under the hood.
