If you're ok with the flex of the hood at speed, there shouldn't be a need. The secondary factory safety catch on the main latch functions on these, and the latch bar is welded to a piece of plate bonded into the lining. It should hold even if the main latch fails.
Very cool about the hood strut source! How is the flex when the hatch and hood are closed, any bowing?Black 86 mk2 Project Car

I used a pair of these (Don L did also - saw it in another thread on here)
I used the ones with a 1.5" overall OD, black anodized. You only need to drill a 0.75" hole, and can make a little 45 degree bracket for the internal post, that bolts to the front of each shock tower. Hood is rock solid even over 150 mph.
Also I use the same 30lb hood struts (all the info is in the Advan hood thread). There was maybe a *bit* of bowing, but now with the latches there is zero.'84 P-type, 5spd, Super red, black/grey leather - 2JZGTE swap, Precision 6262 on cast manifold, ECUmaster black with 875cc/min injectors, 465 WHP at 17 psi, built R154 with OS Giken twin plate, one piece driveshaft with 1310 joints, Truetrac with 3.73 R&P, 450 lb/in front coilovers, 300lb/in rear springs, Image BBM wheels 17x8 and 18x10, 4 corner BBK, AGX shocks, Whiteline bars, poly bushings, T3 GTX2 front control and steering arms etc. etc.
