    When they are used on the 53/54 hoods, the hoods need some
    reinforcement, to stop kinkinig. Trunk works o k .

    My '64 has torsion rods and they work really well. What does yours have? Nitrogen struts are temperature sensitive, so on hot days they can move fast, on cold days, you might have to help them along. They also take up space in a different area, so mounting them might mess up something else. If yours are working, then those WOW dollars might be better spent on something else.

    My 2 cents.

    Nitrogen gas springs for hood and trunk

    has anyone attempted to use Nitrogen gas springs for their hoods and trunk lids?I'm toying with the idea for my 54 street rod Stude.
