bonnet/hood prop solution for aftermarket puma hood?

I have a fiberglass puma hood on my '88 D90, and have no hood prop. Looking for advice on where to purchase and how to fit a hood prop in this situation. Thanks!

$180 + shipping seems excessive for 2 brackets and a piece of steel piping. Anyone have a more affordable solution?

Install two gas shocks as on most cars. This allows access to engine bay unhindered. Its more difficult with a regular bonnet, but with a Puma bonnet there is more structural support at the rear to allow shock installation.
