........they are fiberglassed on. We took my hood to a bodyshop and they told us that we should try swapping latches like you said, but then they noticed that it was fiberglassed on and not bolted on. So it just wouldnt work without risking cracking the hood. I am not everyone to take your hoods back to them and get new ones! My hood is no were near able to fit in the latch. After all the stuff we tried to get it to fit, we managed to put some minor scratches on it as well. Which is another reason we pushed so hard for another hood. I would suggest trying everything humanly possible before asking for a new one. I hope VIS solves this problem so that others wont have to go through this trouble, but I highly doubt that they will.
