:eek I was at the international auto show at the Virginia Beach Pavillion last night and had my first opportunity to crawl all over a loaded red SSR. Finally up close and personal! It was pretty much as expected and I loved it, but one thing surprised me, the weight of the hood. When I lifted the hood it took two hands because of its immense weight. The hood prop had been removed because the weight of the hood was so much, it bent the hood prop. I doubt gas struts will be able to hold up a hood of this weight, but I do hope they make a stronger hood prop that can support the hood. I also noticed the new added fender guards to protect against rock chips. I believe that the running boards will go a long way to protecting the doors from debris from the road flying up and hitting the doors. Definately gonna get those for mine. Overall, it was a real hoot to see one in person. I am sooooo glad I ordered mine so long ago.
