Default Hood strut kit

Got my first of many orders from Maggie at Race and street yesterday. And yes I've got another order on the way .LOL!

So i installed the hood strut kit this morning. was very easy to do. Just follow the instructions. I put the top pieces on backwards at first. anyways it all working awesome now.
Yes! i ordered some SS cover for the struts. maggie hooked me up for the front and back.
May get the brackets powdered in Marine blue at a later date. but I can live with them in black for now.

can't wait for more stuff to get here and the weather to warm up more so I can install them.

I def. need to get one of these for my PT. They look nice, and the stupid yellow prop rod is just lame.

Not only is the yellow prop rod lame but it's dangerous. There's more than one story about mechanics forgetting about the rod and trying to close the hood leaving a nice dent/crease in the hood.

07PTowner. Are the pictures you posted the way the struts are now, because I have them (and many others) the other way with the larger part of the strut at the top. I guess they work well either way.

Race and street. Maggie will hook you up.

Mine was $100 but got it for less. plus you can get 10% off right now with using 1010 in the coupon redemer on the check out.

You better off asking maggie what her best deal is.

she has all stainless steel set for closer to $200.

I'm on just about every PT forum I know of, and I got mine from a forum member who traded in his PT - seem good as new for about 1/2 price.
I've gotten:
Bumper cover
Strut bar
Billet Grille
tailights
TWO PTs (daughter & her husband)
Door lock pins
Lowering springs
K&N FIPK

All from PT forum members - put a post that you're looking....

You just have to be patient....
