Iv been looking around this and a few other forums and cant seem to find any info on adding gas struts to the bonnet on my 2006 mk2 crv , i do love this car but the bonnet weighs more than my last car ;), and id also like a little more room under there once its lifted as the stay for it is quite short for those of us who are a little taller

Can't help you regards how heavy it is. Perhaps, join a gym to increase upper-body strength? LOL



But, did you ever realize that there are TWO holes for the bonnet stay on Hondas? One is in the normal position at the lead edge, but the other is on the side about half-way up. Engaging that, positions the bonnet almost vertical, so that you will have lots of overhead room.
