How come it doesn't seem anyone is using hood pins with this CF hood?

I believe there was some initial discussion about having Fiber Images drill hood pins hole on the hood as an option...anyone do that?

I'm just worried that light hood would fly open while cruising at high speeds on the high way, destroying itself and your windshield and causing a nasty accident...

Patrick Chinsue does not use the pins, does he? im looking at his 'cloak and dagga' pictures, and there are no hood pins.

There's a lot of stuff missing from his car in that set of photos though.

If the vent is doing its job, there shouldn't be much pressure building up under that hood. IMO, for most applications, the stock latch should be adequate.

I do not have any pics of it on the car. It's still in the box actually.

It looks just like what Dave posted back on page 1. 8)



Price was $700+SH to my door. Overall great quality hood. Not sure which of the All-Trac I'm putting it on. I may order another - top notch.

The entire process took about 2-3 weeks.

So how did you order it? Did you call them up and say I want the pain in the ass hood for the 90-93 Celica? Kinda sucks they dont list it on their website.
