Default GD hood prop into swapped GC

Searched around for a while but found nothing that explicitly says this works.

I have a 98 RS with an 04 STi swap. I have used a Mishimoto radiator intended for the 04 STi. I've gotten all that to fit ok, but the GC hood prop rod can't get around the upper rad hose to reach the cradle.

I'm hoping that the GD hood prop rod will fit and solve my problem. Can anyone confirm this for me. I'd hate to order a rod and have it not work. I'd prefer this solution over using gas hood struts due to cost, corrosion and quality concerns.

Thanks,
-Alex

Find someone with a GD and test fit their's? Shouldn't take more than 2 minutes to find out.

If I wasn't a couple thousand miles from home for the next couple months, that's exactly what I'd do. I'm hoping to confirm this while I'm away so I can have the parts waiting for me at home so I can make efficient use of the little time I have to work on the car.
