I recently purchased an Akimoto front strut bar from a forum member (no names). The strut bar fits perfect with the hood up; unfortunately, I can't close my hood. It hits on both sides. Any help to make this work would be greatly appreciated...or should I just return it and get my money back.
I have completly removed the engine hood lining to try and make it fit. Will it damage the hood "paint" to leave the lining off?
