1936 Chevy Master Hood Prop

This is my first post and have seen several post that have helped me in the past. I have a 1936 Chevy Master Deluxe that I am redoing and I am always concerned when I lift the hood (2 piece) and there is not a prop to hold it. In one of the parts shops they have one listed but said it was for the Standard Only. Not sure why and I wanted to see if anyone else has any experience with this. I know the hood is not very thick metal and that may be an issue.

Thanks for any help!

I don't know if this will help but some time ago, I made a hood prop by taking a 3ft piece of 1/4 stainless rod. I bent it with heat and repolished it. It made a very nice looking prop that appeared to be favtory.

Stainless tends to crack when you bend it. If you go this route be sure to get it nice and cherry hot and bend it slowly. Let it move at it's own speed. It will turn black from the heat but polish back like new.
