You may pass :meh:

Just keep in mind no saify latch is needed unless you plan on a hi speed reverse maneuver witch I really doubt.

Let's see if you can get a 5'2 -- 95lb young lady too lift the hood on your SS yea right , I'm 6.1--- 235lb and I need help on this thing. So don't hate bro.:bored:

The gas struts are great and are a common upgrade on the Triumph Spitfires. The big bonus other than making the job easier is that it reduces stress on the sub-frame.
Not sure how the SS is supported underneath but lifting from one side over time could produce stress to the structure. Do agree a quality latch might be needed but if poisoned correctly the struts should not be pushing upward when closed.

I will have all the details on the installation tomorrow on Cap~Rob's fab shop. Thanks Rabtech! Bama rules!
And no the shock actually passes the balance point forcing the hood closed.
