Default Custom color-matched hydraulic hood struts...

made by Blane Baysinger, Huntington Beach, CA, are both functional as well as sharp-looking.

You sound like a rolling advertizement. But the hood struts are are great product. I've had them for a long fact when I bought from Blane there were only black ones available and he dealt strickly thru eBay. I've since covered them would chrome film and you can't tell the difference from the real thng. Installing the struts was one of the best mods I've done.

Gary, You sound like a rolling advertizement...
Maybe I do. However, I like to call them as I see them. In this case, both the product and service were outstanding. [^] Just thought I'd share one of my "best ever" buying experiences so others may benefit should they be looking for hood struts for their Cruiser. [?]
