    Yes Tim. I didn’t want to try to reinvent the wheel on this one.

    The locations are important, especially when the shock collapses in the closing position. If the bottom mount on the inner fender is to far out from the fire wall it would bottom out, and the hood wouldn’t close.
    I think peeps are moving the hood mount location further out so the hood raises more. The Hood sits at the same height as the OEM hood prop on my 3rd gen, and once unlatched it goes up smoothly. I left the prop installed, so when repairs are necessary you can unlatch the struts for easy access from the fenders into the engine bay. Hope this helps.

    This is by far my favorite mod , did it on both the 06 and the 15 always felt this should be an OEM thing ...huge difference

    Yea. It’s not the greatest stuff. Nor does it last long. I can’t even recall the last time i bought something there. But for a one time use, thought it would work.

    If you are going to buy a pop rivet gun https://www.amazon.com/Marson-39000-HP-2-Professional-Riveter/dp/B00063Y1F6
    or spendy https://www.amazon.com/Malco-2IN1-H...64262&sr=8-3&keywords=malco+2in1+hand+riveter

    The Marson if you look on Ebay find one that is stamped Chelsea Mass it is actually made there , they got bought out and the ones stamped Stoughton Mass are made in Taiwan... There is another made in Germany by Gesipa NT X nice unit seriously pricey have only used their battery ones regularly they worked well but gravity function checked badly at least the batteries did. Gesipa NT X

    I have both and OEM Marson and a Taiwan one and though the fit and finish on the Taiwan one is not as nice as the OEM it functions well and you can get parts for them for ever. I gather think you might not use it enough to warrant spending for a quality one and you may be right but it will always work so...

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Marson-HP2...714310?hash=item1ca369f446:g:U2IAAOSwGINanDBv

    It is called Harbor Fright for a reason .. Granted some shop supplies are cheap and good enough and maybe a tool or two but that is about it one and done tools is all really. I will say this there are guys that like their tool boxes for cost and ease of incorporating them into custom shops and they have a welding cart "Vulcan" which is pretty damn heavy duty for them.

    Was looking at a el cheapo guitar at the truckstop. 175$. I played it a bit, and the first thing I noticed is the tuners were junk and needed to be upgraded. Probably would need a lot of stuff upgraded. Not interested in spending hundreds of dollars on a guitar that is probably 100$ overpriced. I’m still looking for something for the truck. Not interested in taking my PRS, but I did pick it up for about half price so I might pick up another and take whichever I don’t like better with me.

    Thanks, I got it all finished up today. I had to lengthen the wiring harness and relocate the safety chains. It's been fun so far now on to the next phase.

    I get the cheap stuff for the volunteers that just need to tighten up loose hinges or light covers. I did fill up the tool box for the "Mother's Day Tool Box" there. Brightly colored, easy to replace, keep her put of my tool chest and leaving my screw drivers throughout the house. But yes, a lot of one and done. Anything after that is a bonus.
