I'm just using the factory latch right now it feels strong I heard this brand didn't need them thats one of the reasons why I bought Seibon... so I guess I'm taking a chance hope it doesn't come back on me...."knock on wood"

You meant kaminari style w/ the body right? hmmm...I thought that was JDM Type R..
I agree with the pins, it emphasizes the hood and protects it.

Dude, we are talking about hoods here. Not bodykits. Gearbox was asking about my hood not Hayz body kit.

The hood latch will eventually go bad. Mine did. I think it is because of the lightweight of the hood. When you get on the highway, all of the wind gets under it and starts to make it lift up. This wears on the latch.

Quite a number of members who were not using hood pins have had their hoods fly up at high speeds. Learn from their mistakes or you might have one of your own.

Other than the latch breaking, I have also heard of the carbon fiber seperating from the skeleton underneath.

hood flying up without hood pins = urban myth. I've never actually heard of it happening to a forum member ...

I don't think cf hoods need hood pins ... I've been running my no-name brand cf hood almost a year without any problems
