Flyin' Miata NA/NB dual hood lift kit

Product Review (submitted on December 12, 2016):

I put these in about a week ago. Installation was actually a lot harder then I expected. It was a tight fit using a wrench to bolt the strut to the fender. Then with the hole drilled in the hood, I had to wrestle the top in and start the nut going while holding the strut under compression because the strut is still partially compressed when the hood is all the way open. I also had to unbolt the hood from the bracket so that I had room to thread the nut, which meant I had to unbolt and reposition the hood on the brackets again later to get the hood to close properly again. It was worth the trouble though. The engine bay feels more open without the prop rod and lends it a clean, uncluttered look. The hood lifts up gently and slowly and closes all the way on the first try just like stock. $70 well spent.
