Whether you’re installing a custom-designed two-piece hood or making a unique cut pattern on your original one, AutoLoc’s Split Hood Kit gives you reliable hardware to hinge both sections properly from the sides of your engine bay. You’ll get reinforced steel hinges built far sturdier than necessary to prevent any amount of flexing or misalignment of hood panels. And you’ll get reliable gas struts that work with the hinges to ensure smooth, gliding operation up to almost 180 degrees. Plus, there’s even the option to add a Power Upgrade Kit with electric sliding actuators that automatically raise and lower either section automatically. A wireless remote control is available as well.
Once both hood sections are closed, cushioning pads beneath the hold-down latches allow hood panels to be tightly secured – eliminating the annoying vibration and rattles that can damage your paint finish and metal. Floating brackets and adjustable mounting holes make it easy to align panels for a perfect fit that will remain as the miles and years roll by. Since some panel trimming and welding will be required, AutoLoc recommends professional installation of Split Hood kits. All components are warrantied by AutoLoc with a limited lifetime warranty against failures due to manufacturing defects.199.00Brand: AutoLoc Part Number: SPHOOD UPC: 802269118256
