replaced hood and liftgate struts. hood - super easy. liftgate, bolts came off fine, however, took a little more effort than expected to get new ones on.

Hood now stands open all by itself.

Liftgate flips up hard enough to put a kid in orbit.

I'm guessing that will wear off after a while.

Wj Unable to run on water alone; add KOH.

I haven't done much to mine in a while; it has been running like a dream though expect to redo some of the fluids soon.

Project 1: The driver window catches, rolls on the rubber lip of the inner door frame and won't go down. The new part just arrived. $55.00...phbbbt.

Project 2: Getting my 29-plate HHO booster up and running has been the priority. I have a 50 amp gauge with external shunt on the way via eBay so I can wire it to the dash, but yesterday went ahead and bought a handheld ammeter so we can begin testing sooner. The goal is to dial in the electrolyte mixture so the system doesn't exceed a 30amp draw maximum. This should have my electrolyte (KOH (100% drain cleaner) and distilled water) concentration at about 2.7lbs to 1ga. which will also keep it from freezing in the winter cold. I expect to get an increase of no less than 30% MPG's (I'm currently at 18/27), but they think we will be able to pull more.

Where did you get the new struts from? Stealership? I'm sick of my hood falling on my head...

On topic I welded up some brackets for a new bumper.
