>QUESTION: Are you using gas struts for the bonnet?
Yes, they were from a old Honda Civic that was going to the junk yard.
They are not enought to hold the bonnet up but make it easier to open
and close it. It was not hard to put them in, I just had to make up
plates for them to sit on and a support bracket that mounts on the
one of the strut to keep the bonnet up.
The only problem I had with them is when I broght the Spit. in to a
body shop. The guy opened the bonnect but didn't see that he needed
to release the support bracket to close the bonnet. He ended up bending
the plate and the area where to strut were mounted on the fender :(.
