Well to answer the OP original concern, go ahead and remove the OEM bracket and strut to install your bracing.

Then when you want to open the hood to do something, just "use your head" to hold the hood up!!

Not really as it means I can get in and out of the gas station quicker and not have to wait in line.

Which side is the correct side, exactly? I don't ever remember seeing a written standard before.

Yeah, seemed I was replacing them annually on my '85, or using the 2x4.

You don't know? It's the paragraph just before the "which side of the car the battery is mounted on" standard.

a good portion of gm vehicles are all left hand fuel fill



i think with two struts for the hood. if both were not exactly the same the hood would lift crooked, and close the same way

of course they have done dual struts on many things without issue

could be a clearance issue so it was left to one

Mines on the right. Its handy with a coupe because you never have to worry about hitting the pump with the door. And a pump is almost always open to you without having to wait, drive around, or back in.

I used a broken graphite golf club...Then again, it was a carbon fiber hood.

Pedders has been working on the Camaro. If anyone is worried about this, I'm sure dms can answer the question. I'll go ahead and PM dms right now.

I was unaware of the hood shock concern until now. We already have a strut tower brace for the Zeta. Here is a picture of it:



The G8 has dual hood struts near the outer end. No issues there with the tower brace.

We will have to wait and see. Pedders USA has a Camaro on order as you would expect. This will be our test car

If you put two of those heavily charged cylinders on that aluminum hood it might end up bent from trying to close it!
Ya can't see it anyway when you're driving it instead of parking it.

i was talking about the GS Camaro... it's the only one with a strut tower brace, which is what the OP was talking about.
