I have a 1980 Malibu with a fibersgass 4 inch cowl hood from fiberboy products. Hinges are attached, but the springs have been removed. Everytime I need to get under the hood I have to prop it up or have someone hold it. Does anyone know of a light weight sring that can be used that replaces the circle spring (sorry dont know the proper name for it) that came off of the hinge? I did a search to see if there are any postings about this. I found where some guys were using gas springs to open and close their hoods. I cant find any examples of this though. Anyone have pictures of this? Or any ideas of what can be done to keep my hood open?
