Carbon Fiber, Fiberglass and other composite hoods may not latch properly.
We have found cars with custom hoods, also have non OEM (original equipment manufacturer) parts sometimes do not latch properly when closed, this can cause a dangerous situation where the hood flies up while driving and causes major damage to the part and possibly the rest of the car.
After we perform a safety inspection, it is the customer (your) responsibility to double check the latch on a custom part.
This is important for your safety and other drivers on the roads.
If your not sure if your hood is OEM and came on the car from the factory, look for the part# label, it should look something like this. If your part doesn't not have this label, your hood has been replace before and will fall under this safety precaution.
