    Rock Auto is going to be wondering why they've suddenly got 35 orders for Supra hood struts...

    I just got my hood & hatch struts in today from rockauto.com. I went out and installed the hood struts immediately. It didn't take long at all. You guys aren't going to believe this, but suddenly my hood pops up when I pull the hood latch release from inside the cab. I no longer have to pry up the hood with my pinkie finger like I used to. And... the damn hood nearly raises up by itself. I lift it up a couple of inches and it takes over and raises up on its own. And the best part of all... it actually stays up and doesn't drop down.

    They're only $12.57/ea from rockauto.com , and about $8.50 for shipping. That's before your 5% discount by using the code supplied in their vendor forum section. For less than $40, and 10minutes of your time you no longer have to use a "stupid stick" to prop up your hood. I can't believe I've been putting this off for so long. Now I feel stupid for not doing it sooner.

    Now it hits him on the way up while he's trying to pry it open with his finger.

It's a GT car, not a detuned version of a WRC rally car.
