So i installed the Saleen grille on my 2010 GT, and it looks great. only problem is now the black plastic piece that used to cover the gap above the radiator cant fit.. i dont care about it being in there but thats what the hood prop latched into. so my question: can i have hydraulic shocks installed to hold the hood?

Sure. There are lots of different versions available. Make sure you get the correct type for your hood (aluminum stock hood or fiberglass/carbon fiber aftermarket)
Try latemodel restoration, cj pony parts, american muscle, etc etc etc

I really liked my Redline Elite struts that I had on my OEM hood.

I just can't bring myself to drill into my brand new beautiful Kaenen hood..

What location should they be in? Can you send me a link to how they are installed if you have one. I have tried everything I can think of to get them to work but.... Any help would be appreciated.
No, like I said I didn't put them back on my hood. If it's bowing than that means the mounts are too close together. The strut is probably not even fully collapsed when the hood is shut. So the mounts need to be moved further apart, be it on the hood or the fender. I would probably choose the fender but that's your call.

This is the one I used on mine and you don't have to drill your hood either.
I wonder if these would be strong enough to hold up an aftermarket fiberglass hood. The only thing I didn't like about my Redline Tuning Elite struts were that they slightly obstructed your room while working from the side.

Give it a try. Plus you'll get rid of that ugly ass prop. ;)
