Hood pins?
Who has a carbon fiber Hood & is not using hoodpins?
How long & what Hood?
I'm not gonna drive that fast & I don't exactly like the way they look.
If someone can, please post a pic(s) of the location of the posts under the Hood. If I have to I need a rough idea of where to start measuring.

I have the BRS Hood. I did not have Hood pins installed when I drove from Wyoming to California. But the Hood almost came off a couple of times while I was passing other vehicles. I got them installed in the same hole as the front ruber mounts are. I do not know if that will help or not. I do not have access to pictures since my car is in California and I'm in Korea.

There are a lot of interesting thing in the gallery...

BRS Hood myself, and just like any other Hood with a raised scoop (even stock Hood) there is play because you're getting a lot of drag running 65mph and putting resistance up front of that (just stick your hand out the window as you are doing 65mph and form your hand into a cup - now you too will feel that resistance smile

On a stock Hood with raised scoop, the Hood also moved around somewhat...

who else with raised scoop, going 100mph, has noticed sever shacking of the Hood wave
