REDLINE STRUT HELP !


Recommended Posts

Ok can someone post a picture of the hood bracket for the Redline/tuning bracket install on the hood. Looking at the pictures on their web site show the bracket on the flat part of the hood. The instructions show it on the side of the hood. I am totally confused here as the side of the hood is not flat and bracket will interfer with fender.

Thanks for your help

I seem to remember that "Fordie" had installed the Redlines awhile back and started a good thread with lots of pictures about it. Unfortunately, I cannot find it. You might PM him and ask him. Wish I could be of more help...

 

Thanks I did a search but most of the ones that came up were to old and the pictures were no longer there. Went online to Redline and looked at the Supersnake instructions. Much better pictures. Only problem is they do not work with the trufiber hood. Hood will not fully close, struts hitting at front of shock tower. Sent pictures to Redline to see if they have any ideas.

Here is a link to my GT500 on ebay......there are multiple pictures of the hood struts and brackets in the listing. I am a Redline dealer if anyone wants a set of these.

Did you get the problem worked out?? If not let me know and I will call Andreas from Redline or give you his cell #. I missed you at Knotts. Saw your beautiful GT500r, but not you. We will meet one of these days...

Yes we did get it worked out. Seams the customer was told to use the Super Snake kit for the Tru-fiber hood which was wrong! Got the regular GT500 kit and had no problem. Sure do like the online instructions better than what came with the kit.

Sorry I missed you also. There was just not enough time to talk to everyone sunday.

Are you going to Victorville?

Yes, I will be at the Victorville show. Trying to get a cruise together going the back way thru Yucca Valley. Very Scenic. I will have my new Shelby by then.

Hope to see you there along with the rest of my TS friends. Going to see if I might join in with the OC group to cruise up with them.
