    Will you be drilling new holes in your hood to mount the upper pivot ball? Same question for the lower pivot ball, need to drill new holes there too?

        We use two stainless steel sheet metal screws for the hood brackets.
        We use two M6 bolts with nylock nuts on the fender brackets..... so yes new holes need to be drilled, but they're small and simple

          How does yours compare to the Redline Tuning kit? Warranty?

          http://www.redlinetuning.com/QL-FORD-CON-ALL.html



          If I'm not mistaken, the redline tuning kit props the hood up about 2" higher than stock at the location they tell you to install it, but it can also be set to prop the hood to the max (which is when the hood "tails" hit the wiper cowl). Their kit uses existing mounting points of other bolts, ie; hinge-to-hood bolt replaced with pivot ball, and fender-to-inner fender bolt is replaced with another pivot ball.

              The downside to this one, imo, is the drilling unless done professionally and w/o errors. You can clearly see how this kit really like stands the hood upright like a MB or BMW on the 90's cars giving you a ton of room compared to latch and the long struts from the redlines that I HAVE SEEN...

                I would like to see a picture if the tails of the hood are hitting the wiper cowl or how close they are. Being up that high, even with a little wind and less than 1/4" from with wiper cowl with your hood up, it might move and mark it up.

                    Yes there is some drilling involved for the install, but they're not precision holes so any drill will work really. This is the trade-off for allowing the hood to open so high and not run all the way down the fender and be in a person's way when trying to wrench on the motor

                          I will take some today where the hood meets the wiper cowl and post them this evening for all to see.

                          I should also mention that we've mfg and sold about 250 sets of hood strut kits between all the cars we've developed them for over the last 3 years and shipped them worldwide.....so we have some serious experience in this department

                            Plenty of room on the backside.... a little more than .25" gap spacing on either side:

                              Some members were asking for an up close pic of the seam with the hood closed to verify the fitment:
