Default Re: Hood prop

Because the hood rod is not held down at the front like the Model A, no real safe way to use a hood prop. If I want to show off the engine I just take the hood off, or just open the carburetor side, not much to see on the other side anyway. I have set the hood sides on the cowl and radiator, I have also had it fall over and off.
