I have the stainless hood struts from Simple Engineering. Were easy to install. Mike's instructions are easy to follow. Also replaced the rear deck lid struts and now the lid opens up. I have saved a lot of money on my manicures.
It is the first thing I did on my R when I got her, not very difficult, just follow directions and it is SO much better then the prop it came with. Mike's directions on install for all of his items I have purchased are clear and easy and, as we are mostly male, he includes PICTURES:laugh:!!
