How do you do this?

I was admiring Telele's pics when i came across this. I noticed some other members doing this also with their hoods. Do you need to upgrade the hood hinges? Also is this only for show, or is this safe enough where you can work under the hood while having it propped like this?

I think the stock hinges will allow for that. You just have to disconnect the gas shocks that hold the hood up (if you have those). I would put something there to hold it up if I was gonna work under the hood with it up like that. One gust of wind and their goes your upper body =/...or hood if you have CF

Lots of Carbon Fiber hoods can do that because there arent gas shocks to hold up the hood ..

I personally think it look gay with the winshield washer nozzles : ]

It look so clean without it

My friend's hood on his Prelude flew all the way back and cracked the windshield and damaged part of the roof. You might want to be careful and that there might be a possibility that the hood could fall backwards.

ok so it sounds like oem hinges have the capabilities to prop up perpendicular with the engine bay.

You guys think its possible for me to swap out my gas shocks for my brothers i4 sedan hood prop? I know the hood prop will work for my car, but will the gas shock be able to fit on his car?

was this when the hood was closed? Or when he had it propped it?

the LX ones come in black, hahaha. but they cost an arm and a leg to buy, with my discount i have at my dealership, it was still like $20 somthing to get both, and the discount is pretty good. so i would just sugest painting them. and im the same about the nozzles too, i use them a lot, so if/when i get a CF hood, im deff gonna need those b!tches on there, haha.
