Turns out the hood latch will work. The bar is 1/4" higher than the OEM hood but the latch did adjust enough. The reason it wouldn't latch before was the bar was a bit too thick. Once I trimmed down the diameter, all was fine. The hood fits well. The center is very flimsy but I didn't adjust the lights from the OEM hood so the fit is acceptable.

Mine sleep inside, behind a gate, with big mean dogs and a 12ga handy, on top of being in the middle of nowhere.

Mine doesn't either, but it attracts a fairly ridiculous amount of attention from younger ricers whenever I drive it around.

another reason I don't drive mine anymore.. well other than it look stock with wheels on it.
I get 10,000,000,000 questions already when I take two sets of wheels at a time to have R comps mounted on them at the local NTB. usually I wind up explaining to about 15 high school punks why there's no tread on the tires and that I track the car.. "like yeah.. on a real race track?" yup. "woah. that's like kickass dude.."

uuugh.
Then I tell them I live 20 miles north of where I actually do.

Yea, I think it's strange sometimes when kids get crazy about your car then start asking where you live. I told one kid the general area(that's not really the area I live in, just close to it), then he kept pestering me and I finally told him there was no way I was actually going to tell him where I lived, so he could piss off.

Eek. What was the aftermath of that? Buying a new hood and windshield?
