  2. I believe this does happen from wind moving the hood when up and also causing stress when the hood is just left open with the support being on only one side. I always use a hood prop at cars shows on the rear or open end of hood on the opposite side of the support. This firms it real nice even in wind. At home in garage with hood open I use the hood prop in the center of hood and then down to area of wiper motor, eliminating any stress potentional. You notice most the time when the hood is open, the opposite side of where the support is the hood flexes lower causing stress. All just my opinion of course and what I do.

  3. in response to Silverpate, both companies have history about 20+ years. the first company is in Texas and the second in Ohio. Since there are more than one company in each State that I spoke of, BBB did not help at all.


    My post actually Mark is for people buying a lift to avoid what you went thru. People should do their homework first before making this type purchase. The BBB will give you a complaint history. And like I said ALI certification is most important. Unfortunately it has been proven thru the track records most US made lifts have issues.
