Default 2009 WRX hood prop

I have a CF hood so I completly removed my hood dampers, and I really like the idea of a hood prop instead of new dampers. Not to mention I would rather save my cash for and AP! Has anyone tried to make a hood prop system or any ideas on how?

To answer this question, look to see if the underside of your hood even has a place to put the prop.
