    I have heard the springs off of a Daytona/Lebaron hood work well with a 'glass hood. I have a set for my new hood, but I haven't gotten around to installing them.

    I'd take the springs off and prop it up with a sawed off broom handle. :geek:

    Actually, the gas pressurized struts woud be pretty cool.

    A lift off hood makes engine work alot easier. Think about it.

    I used Plymouth Sundance spring they're almost half the width. I put about 2 1/2" of preload it's perfect in case somebody want to know. Have a good week-end.
