I am thinking of getting hood pins for my CF hood. Is there a brand/size you guys recommend? Is there any precautions I need to take install them?

Thanks guys.

Oh, I got a 00 gsr if that matters.

They have hood locks and even have a picture. They use a type of key to open them. That way you can lock your hook instead of just pinning it down for someone to open.

if it has the hook latch thingy ( sorry i dont know the name of it) then it wont need hood pins. My VIS cf hood doesn't need hood pins but its always good cause cf hoods are known to fly up in your windshield at highspeeds. but if your worried about someone stealing you cf hood or gettting into your engine bay then hood locks would be smart to.

hoodpins are a good idea...nothing like a light CF hood flipping open at 100 mph:
Sparco....or if you're cheap Mr Gasket.

Are there different kind os CF hoods? I don't mean brand and style, I mean weight wise? Are there some that are like feathery where others are more heavier? I would assume that the lighter ones would need a hood pin more than the regular ones with the hood latch right?
