I notice you are not using hood pins, what brand is the hood? I just installed a Carbon Creations hood, talked to them on the phone and they said it was not needed for my hood. They said it is because we have 2 latches that are under spring tension so it cant vibrate.

Hood pins? As in AeroCatch or similar? If so, yes I don't have those as I used the factory spring tensioners seen in this pic (not my hood but to give an idea)


You can see the springs on either side of the hood and the "hood catch" in the middle.

Those tensioners go into the two holes on either side of the radiator.. you can see them here


I did NOT use a hood latch as the car is primarily used for show and it added an ugly visual..... in retrospect, I wish I had... not having one caused me to lose my hood when it was taken on a test drive by a mechanic who failed to make sure it was properly shut... as soon as he accelerated, the lightweight hood snapped back onto the windshield and into a thousand pieces

LOL, I know how the hood latch works, I was just wondering what brand the hood was.
