How do you make the hood like this?

I understand the hood hinges are adjustable but it doesn't go up that high. I thought maybe hood risers?? Researched.. and nothing came up but Honda stuff. To me it looks pretty cool (rain is a factor i know but it won't hurt alot). Any ideas?

I think you just kick it really hard on the fender just behind the headlight.

just pop your hood and get a bungie cord to hold it down so it doesnt go up. solved your problem for less then $5.

Those Germans sure do love their techno lol.

I think it makes it look like the hood latch is broken but to each their own.

Some guys do this when spinning, as they believes it leats the engine heat out better

Slot the hood adjuster so the can be sit higher maybe. Really don't know why you would want to though.

"Proper" way to do this is a bit of an oxymoron
