We are introducing our new V2 hood strut setup to improve on our version 1.

While our V1 struts worked well for a few hundred MR2 Owners, there was room for improvements. A small handful did experience fitment and installation issues. They were mostly caused by the tight fitment of this setup, bad tolerances from factory and minor minute changes in rod ends due to available supply and manufacture changes we went throughout our V1 product lifespan. A 1mm change in rod end dimensions would of thrown things off by resting the hood strut against the fender. 

With that being said, for V2, we introduce all new slimmer/smaller diameter struts of the same force (allows up to 6mm more room to play with) also available in new all new full stainless steel material as well as improved customized hardware made to our specifications exclusively for MR2Heaven. This allows for much better QC as we no longer have to source rod ends from numerous manufactures. The following combination allows for a much better fit inside the already tight area with more room for bad tolerance stacks present on MR2s. This new setup will also allow for a washer to be used in between the hood hinge and rod end, allowing for more structural support than before and the ability to retain the 3rd 10mm fender bolt which had to be removed to install v1.

The stainless steel variant introduces some pop. jazz and improved rust resistance!

With this V2 system, we have mastered and reached the pinnacle for hood struts on SW20 MR2s

Estimated V2 Arrival for shipping 10/4/2020-10/10/2020.
