Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
What's wrong with your hood latch?

I made my own. If it was for bling I would have used stainless and polished them.
No pics handy...

Hey all,

Decided on these 2 sets for pins. They come in blue (lol) keep up with theme. cheers

On the bolts for the plates I will need to buy longer ones to go through the hood properly.

cheers and thanks for ideas.

The hood bounces too much and I don't trust the latch. Just some added prevention. cheers
