im gonna go see whats up and what the guy thinks about it.. i know its more of a safety precaution but ill take my chances. texting and driving is probably 3045 worse and everyone does that.. so anyways if it happens it happens if not then im all good!

It makes the car look really aggressive and mean looking but i cant wait till i get my black mags back on for winter the car will look like a menace hahah.

ill keep you guys updated on whats going on!

well hopefully the pedestrian you run in to or the other car that you run into with the family of 5 inside understands that it's all OK, because at least you didn't have to look at those hood pins on your car.

8 members have recommended hood pins and even posted pics of what happens when fiberglass hoods fail. You choose to ignore them.

It's your decision, but don't expect folks to be giving advice in the future when you experience what they warned against. This isn't a choice like texting when driving, it's simple physics. Fiberglass hood latch mounts simply can't hold the hood down against the dynamic air pressure it will encounter.

NASCAR uses hood pins for a reason.

Whos exaggerating? You can't predict what would happen anymore than I can. My scenario is very plausible.

Alright so i went to get it adjusted today... the hood looks fine now but they all agree the hood is sh*t and i should definitely put pins on there to hold it down.

I will most probably be taking it off for winter just cause. Ill see if i can sell it too and get my money back.

If not i will just ride around with it for now.. it doesnt look that bad i will re wrap it before selling it to increase value but i want to keep it it really grew on me and i really dont think ill have a problem with the hood coming up.. but everyone is telling me other wise so can someone link me to REAL hood pins please.

You mean like these?

Yeah, get it wrapped to match the car and it will be good!
