Has anyone in the northern states had problems with rain or snow affecting the engine after putting on a hood riser kit? Do you take them off in the winter or something? Or am I being paranoid?
If you're too lazy to gather the parts (like me), you can get them at http://miataroadster.com/what all are you all using for hood risers? A kit from a certain company, Home Depot gatherings?
You can get the hardware separatly from anywhere they sell nuts and bolts, like; Ace Hardware, Lowes, Home Depot, Fastenal, etc Would proabaly cost about the same as the kit, minus the shipping. The only way you can really get a good deal is to buy them in bulk, which would cost more than the ready made kit Exhondaman is talking about, that and if you dont wanna source the parts its just easier to get a readymade kit.Anyone have any DIY ideas for a hood riser kit?
They're 10 bucks through miataroadster.com, I know, but I'm cheap and don't wanna wait for shipping
I'll try this sometime soon, maybe today.Take out one bolt from the hood/hinge. Goto a hardware store... find a plastic or brass spacer and then a bolt that is long enough to compensate for it. Buy 4 of the spacers and 4 of the longer bolts.
