Let us know how it goes if possible! 😁
Will do. I have the parts, and just need to make 2 brackets.....

I will do a proper "How To" when I'm done.

Any luck with this? I can't wait to see what you end up with!
Got it all done last weekend, but upon the first test cycle, it failed. By just threading the ball mount into the push-pin hole in the hood, well, they don't stay put. Too much pressure for a weak attachment point. I have a few ideas but need to find time (and cooler weather) to see if any will work.

Got her done for now. Had to remove one strut as I couldn't close the hood. Will try and find some struts with half the pressure.




I will work on a full write-up and get that posted soon.

Found struts with less pressure, so this job is now complete.
