Carbon Fiber Hood latch is a must!

Well just wanna let this be a wake up call for everyone who does not have hood pins on there car if there have a Carbon Fiber Hood. People always say ohh that wont happen to me or I don't take the highway so I'm good for it, this happened to me going to work in the morning I was on the highway but not up to highway speed yet! I was doing around 70-85kmph when my hood thought it would be a great idea to take a flight. here is the aftermath. The car was fixed and was under insurance the body shop did a real great job on the car repainted most of the car again had brand new fenders and had them rolled before paint! now I don't rub in the front with my 265/35/19! hehe and well new sunroof and most important the brand new Carbon Fiber Hood!

Yea man I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to get a Carbon Fiber hood or already has one and sees this post! I was one of them I never thought it would happen to me and then it happened. Your right it could have been a lot worse I'm glad I was not playing around or anything at the time because yes it could have been way worse. Thank god for insurance EH
