Trunk Props for MGB and MG Midget
Replace your old trunk lid prop with this new self-triggering version. You will LOVE needing only one hand to operate your trunk lid instead of three. Ever take anything out of an MG Trunk? With the factory prop, you have to set your parcel on the ground while you use both hands to shut the trunk lid. never again face this annoyance. Just lift slightly and the prop automatically collapses. This prop also reduces the possibility of your trunk lid being ruined by someone trying to force it shut against the rigid factory prop. Looks like the original equipment and installs easily to existing mounting brackets. Fits approx. 1971 to 1980 MGB and 1971 to 1979 MG Midget.

This slick lift cylinder is a wonderful convenience, plus a foolproof guard against getting your boot lid bent as so often happens with the factory prop rods. Open your boot lid with ease, then close it with just an elbow. This prop lets you "slam" your lid shut instead of the factory's method of two hands and a bent back. Also, be absolutely certain no one will EVER ruin your boot lid trying to shut it over the factory's rigid locking prop. This is inexpensive insurance!!
Installs in minutes with just a 7/16" wrench. This design uses the same mounting brackets as your current prop and will fit all MGB boot lids with telescoping props approx. 1971-1980.

Gas charged bonnet lift kit and instructions for Triumph Spitfire 1962-1978
Everyone knows how heavy and awkward the Spitfire Bonnet is, so treat yourself and your bonnet to this marvelous new Bonnet Lift Kit!
Two powerful gas springs will now make lifting your bonnet a thing of ease! The initial lifting force is substantially reduced, and after opening only a portion, the springs take over completely and raise your bonnet Fully Open. Because there is even support there is no risk of the bonnet being damaged.
Lowering the bonnet is so much better, too! The weight does not build and build like before, but instead you "pull" the bonnet down and then lower it for only the last portion while the springs help counterbalance the weight!
This cleverly engineered design requires NO DRILLING. Custom fabricated brackets and ball studs fasten to existing geometry. Gas Springs have even been custom made for just this application--they are not "off the shelf."
