yes, right. I can't understand only the one low attachment point. We have there a plastic molding that doesnt support anything behind. How they would attacked metal mounting bracket to that plastic? Ask for some video manual they might have it...otherwise I woldnt buy it.

If you have a lovely wife, sexy hot lover, cool car, no problems with the government and revenue authorities, and when you go out the sun always shines and all passers smile to you - common dude, say NO to drugs!

They responded (rather quickly) and sent me the manual. It was in one long long image file, so I had to break them up into individual images. Anyway, I was about to order them after seeing the install steps and then I noticed something. In the manual it shows how it attached to the frame and I rather like how they did it, since it attaches to two metal points on the frame. But looking at the website image of the brackets the lower ones look different. So I shot them another email asking which types of lower frame brackets will they be sending out in the kit. The one shown in the website or the ones shown in the manual.
See images below to see what I mean. (Click on them for bigger view).

Bracket shown in the install manual


and bracket shown on their website.


If they tell me its the one sent out that is shown in the manual, I'll place the order.

Ok they responded late last night (early their time Korea) and it seems that the image on their website of the brackets is of the Kia Sportage which they seem to have used as the image for the Tucson Kit. Hopefully they fix that. The one shown on the manual is the correct brackets (and the one I like better) are the ones that go out for the Tucson Hood Kit. So I ordered it.

The link is in my previous post (#48) but here it is again.

Hood Struts from Shark Racing.

and here is the full install manual in case you want to look over it beforehand.

Man I hate not having the ability to edit previous posts. It forces me to make back to back posts which I really don't like. Oh well,

Since the brackets come in white or is it regular grey (can't really tell from the photos in the manual). I would like to paint them to (as close as possible) to the Caribbean Blue on my Tucson. So does anyone know what type of paint I would use to paint these brackets. I figure it has to be some special paint for such a high heated area of an engine bay.

Fire away folks with suggestions.

Well, I ordered the Hood Stands, the same ones that member jsrd bought on ebay (since I couldn't figure out that Russian order page that member semco got his from). The stands arrived yesterday. But as luck would have it, it is a registered shipment and I had to sign for it. So it went back to the post office. I drop by lunch time today to pick it up. Hopefully this weekend, I'll install them.

Within the box was the installation pamphlet (in Russian), a refrigerator magnet, 2 brackets and the shocks. (Why they send a Russian install pamphlet instead of a English one knowing full well its coming to the states is beyond me.)

Removing from the bubble wrap are the 2 gas struts and the necessary nuts, bolts and 2 additional brackets.

closeup of the brackets.

Unlike the shocks that member Semco received (Finwhale 120323) and the ones that member jsrd received (Krosno 21673), the ones that came in my shipment did not even have a box to indicate the manufacturer and are different and these are from the same place jsrd ordered from. So much for consistency.
The shocks themselves do not have any label either. The only thing close to a label is a stamped on the end of the bolt connector showing "Hamil" and on the actual cylinder is the number 91696.

So after searching, it seems they are from Hamil Precision Co. Ltd. based in South Korea. But try as I may I cannot find any info about these gas spring/shocks numbered 91696. But looking over the dynamic gas spring page of (showcasing Hamil's products), it seems that the springs are actually model # and spec'd as follows...


So, as I mentioned previously, the weight of the hood is 18 lbs/8.16 kg so seeing that these have a newton force of 80. I don't think it will exert much stress on the hood but I wonder if it will be strong enough to actually hold up the hood. I guess I'll find out this weekend when I'll install it.

So far, my observations are mixed.
Pro:
Fast shipping (at least to NYC)
Brackets look strong.
All necessary bolts are included.

Cons:
Hood Dampers/struts did not come in their own box (which would help to indicate what brand and model they are and probably get suitable US versions.)
Installation pamphlet is in Russian. Really? if you are shipping and selling to US/Canadian buyers, get a translator and send a English version.
Considering that these are marketed to 2016 Tucson owners, they could have included a paper template on where to drill the hole.
Inconsistent shipping items. My hood dampers are not the same a the ones that member jsrd got, even though its coming from the same place and order page on ebay.

I'll update with an additional post on the install later this weekend.

TS out (putting fingers on ice)
Hi, I have some explanations.
Main thing about gas springs. The installation kit with brand Pomogator you have bought is made for easy, drill free install (ok, no need to drill steel body of car). I see it looks nice and works nice, isn't it? Box is smaller and weight is less, this is good not only for shipment cost, but for your car also. Now they made installation leaflet in English, because you are absolutely correct, it is crazy to sell to USA or to Canada and attach manual in Russian only. They do not give drilling template for plastic cover because they suppose it is piece of cake(maybe they are wrong).
They can put gas springs of different producers to the kit, according to availability of these parts on supplier's stocks. No need to search for supplier name and tech data, because kit is developed the way it will work according to car's design. And producers of springs make them according to kit's producer's requirements. So Krosno ones have the same power as your. In fact, springs you have are made by Sweden company, not Korean one. And they developed kits more than for 80 models of cars. Do you use this hood struts still?

Yes I still have the hood struts (actually both, the ones that Semco bought from Russia and ones from Shark Racing in Korea), I have yet to put the Shark Racing ones on because back then I got hurt trying to remove the hood bolt (I used wrong tool) and was going to do it later on, but never got a chance to do it. Then Winter came. So it may have to wait till the spring.

As for the make and model of the springs, the reason I wanted to know back then was in case they fail in the future, I'll know what suitable replacement to get.

and in regards to the manual, the Russian struts was totally in Russian. It may be easy by looking at the pics and video, but sometimes I like to have something written in front of me just to be sure.
