Re:deck lid tension rods

My decklid comes up with ease by itself. But you guys don't want to put too much tension on the rods, because when they fly up like that, the decklid has to suddenly stop when the hinge stops. This puts a lot of stress on the decklid. The old fiberglass on the orignal decklids has a tendency to crack easily. Once cracked, the only option is to remove the fiberglass skin from the frame, repair the cracks, then repair the seam that you had to split taking it apart.
