How to install Grimmspeed hood struts on your BRZ, FRS, or 86.
Grimmspeed hood struts are intended to replace the stock hood prop. The hood prop holds your hood up in the air when it is open. However, the stock prop does not hold the hood in place very solid. The hood struts mount to each side of the hood and firmly keep the hood in place when open. If you are out at a car show, or a race, these hood struts are invaluable. The firm mounts consequently keep your hood safe from blowing over in the event of a wind gust. In addition, you no longer have the stock hood prop interfering when working inside the engine bay! As far as I am concerned, the Grimmspeed hood struts are one of the best bang for your buck upgrades. My hood strut installation video covers all areas of the installation. The install is simple and straightforward.
