i sandblasted them,i actually sought out a set of bezels and grille that were in rough shape for that reason,i blasted them till the chrome-copper and all started to peel and i pulled it off with pliers.took some time though.some body work and priming followed too.

the struts are strong arm 4062.they're rated at 120lbs each.it holds the hood fine when not running but I'm upgrading to a set that's 130lbs each.reason being the steel hood started to creep reving it up with the hood open.the part number is SE110p130 at lift supports depot.com
ML3000 was the part number for the ball studs.You need two packs. i found those ball studs at auto zone.com

they might be,depending on what kind of 'glass hood we're talking about,if you're talking about a light flimsy cheaper almost pin on style hood,it might be to much.it'll be hard to close actually.if you're talking about the harwood type that uses a stock latch to stay closed and is rather stout, the 4062's @120lbs are what people are using with good luck.
