VIS CF Hood, spots for the shocks?

On my 6spd I have these shocks that lift the hood up for me. I'm going to be tracking down my cf hood from vis soon, and was hoping it came with points for me to install the shocks. Anybody know if the hood has these points?

Even possible?

I would advise you not to use the stock shocks because the hood is lite and will always be pushing up at a heavy force, which could eventually crack the hood, or if u dont have hood pins it will just put more upward force on the hood when driving down the road and it could fly up, with my 6th gen i just went out and bought a 4cyl hood prop for like $20 from honda fits perfect!

Yeah he is right.

I do not use my hood shocks...actually they are just laying in my engine bay, and what I do if I need it propped open: I use one to hold the hood up cuz there are 2 little bolts on the underside of the hood, you can just attach the piece on the shock to it to hold it up.

^Yeah that doesn't really make sense...I'll have to take some pics if you are interested in knowing what I'm referring to.
