This is an aluminum upgrade to the original metal header panel support brackets. This weight 6.4 oz compared to the 1 lb metal support brackets but are equally as durable. 100% made in America right here in Indiana.
The purpose of this pair of support brackets is to prevent the fiberglass header to your vehicle from cracking when the car owner or mechanic at your local shop leans on one side or the other to do work on your car and puts too much weight on the unsupported section of the header which is the area above the headlights.
Two of the pictures for this listing are of an actual GN that shows what can happen to your header panel if they are not supported and someone is careless and leans on the unsupported area on either side.
This pair of support brackets are designed to fit vehicles with original header panels with no missing studs. If trying to use on a remanufactured header panel these may not fit and modification may be necessary. If the hood is not aligned properly and sits too close to the front of the vehicle some modification of the top edge above the header screws may be necessary.
