    thanks for the compliments guys!! I'll snap a few shots from the front sometime tomorrow for ya'll.

    I asked the guy about installing them on aftermarket hoods, and that is the purpose of them. He said they even work fine with carbon fiber hoods. Every kit has a 2 year warranty on it as well! Can't beat that. I absolutely love how it looks. :bunny3:

    im guessing they hold the hood up with a strong feel to them right? I had those type of supports on my 01 Jeep and they worked well :boink:
