Installed Redline Tuning QuickLift Elite.... NERVE WRACKING!!
First off let me say the product is AMAZING and does a great job. But man I was sweating like a ***** in church when it came time to drill into the hood.
First off I probably spent an hour measuring and re-measuring and making sure I had the holes right where they needed to be. I had to adjust the hood brackets back about 1/4" due to the dimples on the outside edge of the flat surface the brackets mount on. But once I found the sweet spot I put masking tape under the bracket and then marked through the holes to drill.
Let me say this, I thought I was going to drill through the hood a couple times. I taped off part of the bit and drilled very slowly but once you break through if you don't stop in a split second that bit grabs and keeps pulling the drill, but luckily I never dented or marred the top surface of the hood.
The best part of the whole experience though was dropping one of the top mounting brackets into the engine bay and spending the next half hour trying to find it and then an hour trying to fish it out. I ended up getting a long screwdriver and banging it around trying to get it to drop out then I had to jack the car up to crawl under the engine and about break my arm trying to pull it out.
What a day. But it was all worth it and no more prop rod and the struts lift the hood like a dream!
