I've had mix reviews, certain CF Hoods say it requires/suggests hood pins and others don't. Carbonetics says it requires hood pins, CBD says nothing, Special Carbon Fiber doesn't say anything and Seibon requires/suggests it. Reviews? My hood is unrepairable which sucks and I can't find a new one. From a dealer it's 1700 + Tax

I have a latching Carbon Fiber Vented hood that I absolutely love I purchased it from NeonRXT ( i wish i could remember the brand offhand) I have had no issues what so ever with the standard latch, although I do need to re clear coat it.

I did have a Seibon CF hood on one of my old Honda civics and ran in to trouble with it's hood latch and actually had to resort to going to hood pins on it because It was beginning to stress fracture on the latch points before I installed the pins.

As far as if you do go with Hood Pins I strongly recommend the MR. Gasket Pins. I have used these on 3 Different vehicles and they hold up extremely well and were very easy to install. (And they are very cheap I get mine from Autozone 19.99-29.99)
