Medic hood came flying off
 
I just wanted to warn you guys out there about what happened to my fiberimage hood. I was driving doing about 35 and it lot loose I'm not sure if it was at the hood latch or hinge but all I saw was my hood hit my windshield the and was ripped off the passengerside hinge. I don. Know if it is a fluke thing but. I want all you racers to be aware of it and inspect your truck. Almost 4k in damage so be careful. I was lucky no one else was around. Just a friendly warning.

I did have it professionally installed and lined up so I'm not sure if it was a hood latch which appears functional or something else. Just want you guys to be safe

this is the same guy as the red site turtle something.......


i wil say the medic qulaity is suspect but this is the first I heard of coming off.

mike downstate had his STOCK hood open loose hardware in a hood swap?

anyway this is really the first one. regardless glad the OP is fine/


makes a case to llok into some hood pins with alll the hoods flying around.
I guess what concerns me is ALL the makers say 'use hood pins' in their guarantee yet no one uses them. hood pops open they gonna wipe their hands /....... might be time for a change.

Damn that sucks. 1st time hearing of it with a Jeep. But hear a lot of it in the car communities. That's why I got some aero catch hood latches on my CF hood on my galant.
