Re: Medic hood came flying off

Hey Guys I will have some pics in a day or so I have it at the body shop so my insurance adjustor could come in and get this thing moving I will have the hood tomorrow afternoon and take some pics of what happened. As for the loctite it was def on there the bolts were still in the hinge the cf shredded around the holes.
AND BTW THE HOOD U FOR THE LATCH IS STILL ON THERE TIGHT.
A local shop installed it and I know they did it right, they also did all the work on my 350z as well including a CF hood.
ANYONE WHO HAS TAKEN THERE MEDIC HOOD THROUGH A CARWASH WITH DRYERS HAS SEEN IT EXPAND AND SHAKE
I have had it on my Jeep for about 9 months.
Im not saying 100% either way what happened seems strange that I drove 4-5 miles and all of a sudden it flew off it was extremely windy that day too I dont know. Dont kill the messenger guys Im a track junky myself but at 35mph that scared the Sh!T out of me imagine 100+. All I said is Be careful. Pics will be up tomorrow and you can see what the damage was, maybe reinforce the area with something if needed.
Im doing this for your guys safety not to argue about what hood is better.

Re: Medic hood came flying off

ok so the hood itself failed around the hinge area? Crazyness! Glad you made it out ok - I remember when my hood flipped - a little intense!

Re: Medic hood came flying off

Yeah, very lucky the hood is the only hurt thing. Could have been MUCH worse.
