glass front end, hood latch question?

605 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Jim Mac
Just got a bolt on fiberglass hood, this thing looks brand new, its a bolt on type hood with the finished edges all around with a 2 inch z 28 cowl on it. The hoods got the anchors in it for the hinges, and its actually 12 3/4 inches apart so its perfect for my 68. But.. the latch end of the hood, theres no inserts in the bracing, and taping on it, it sounds pretty hollow. Im worried about using screws and having the latch come loose and the front of my hood catching some air and pulling itself apart. Anyone else running a glass hood. Im really trying to avoid drilling pins, but for safetys sake I will, but just asking for ideas. thanks Jim

There should be inserts for the bolts. Similar to the hinge mount
