They are so when he hits mach 1, he doesnt loose the hood!

But the hood is lighter then stock and they keep the hood from flying up to the windshield

Yep! There is a rod that goes through the center of the disk on the hood, from under the hood. Both rods are usually mounted on the horizontal metal support the headlamp screws to. The pin with the wire cable to it goes through the rod, thus holding it down.

You mostly see these on cars where the hood is removable or if it does not have a latch.

well mi-vibe toolguy got it right on the head... i'm removing the stock latch because the hood's hook for the latch was too short so it wouldn't sit flush with the front of the car. I'll take a picture in a little bit of where i have the rods attached.

well i went in to the body shop today to pick up my car.... and they had rushed through it and left some major paint flaws in the paint there was 3 places where they paint was just completely cracked through, and other places where it looked like they had gone over the primerwith 80grit and had left it at that before painting...very dissappointed.

RIP them a new one and get it fixed.... you cant just drop the hood off since they now know what the color is and all that good stuff so you not without a car?

I'm actually thinking about painting the whole car but first i have to do my performance modifications. and since i have bought the turbo, and now my house needs a new a/c, i may have to forego some of the internals to the engine and just upgrade my tranny via Levelten.com they've got a billet TC and some other stuff for the tranny so i'll probably end up doing that. and save the internals for later.

no i put the short ram on at the ohio meet last year....I still need to hook it up to the hood and make it functional ram air. I'm thinking I may do that as part of my turbo install, if not then maybe I can get the SC tube so that i can fit the filter on straight
