Lift off hoods

Is it really that big of a pain? Just to carry a blanket and set the hood on the roof.. Are they to heavy to get with one person?

I would imagine almost impossible to do alone. Unless you are able to reach from end to end on your hood.

I figured if it was a cowl I could life up on it enough to grab two sides I'm pretty long armed but I'm sure I could always have a helping hand, I don't pop my hood to much randomly anyway lol

Not sure where I would mount the hood pins tho

Unless its a race car that needs a pin on hood, get a regular one. And hood struts.

Then get a good aftermarket hood but get a bolt on one, not a lift off one.

Lift off hoods

Everything I have seen from them looks really nice

But you are right there are many negative comments. That can happen to any business. I have seen a few hoods from them and they line up well.
