    aftermarket hoods don't always latch the best.. hood pins are highly reccomended!

    2000 Trans AM WS6 - Forged Motor APS Twin Turbo Kit. Full Suspension & C5 brakes.... in pieces currently
    1998 Trans AM STS Turbo
    1997 Jeep Cherokee - when you just gotta go places other things won't take you.
    1995 Mercury Grand Marquis - ugly but comfortable

    I have the part of the fiberglass where the latch is mounted sandwiched between two pieces of plate steel now, so hopefully no more issues. Hahaha.
