Im having such a hard time deciding what to do next so i wanted to see what are some of your favorite mods that youve done and maybe that could lean me one way.
Absolutely anything that youve done to your car that your satisfied with , or things youve done that turned out to be simply terrible, such as poor quality parts ect.
thanks!

The best thing anyone can do is replace the hood prop rod with a set of struts. A little expensive at around $130 but well worth it.

They used to be cheaper than that when BLANE made them but he's not doing them anymore. Race and Street took over and although they are a little bit more money, it could stop a few hundred dollars in body and paint damage to your hood if anybody would attempt to close it with the prop still in place.

I dont let anyone under my hood, never have had good experiences when i do that. But it would help me out a lot . every time im under the hood all i can think about is how heavy that hood is and how small the prop rod is :/ feel like steve irwin at times.

Blanes hood struts, was my very first MOD on our 2002. Since then they have been on 2 more different PT's, they now are on our 2008.

PT Cruiser Hood Strut Kit Premium Black w/ Stainless Strut Covers: Race and Street
Haha, well, um no, not for me, I have never even opened the hood of this car and I care not what is in there. I take good care of it, but I leave that stuff to others. It would really turn my manicure to crap

It also keeps service monkeys from putting reverse dents in you hood, by trying to close the hood without removing the hood prop.
