Some pictures are for reference only.OFF-ROAD USE & HOOD PINS STATEMENTAdvan Carbon always put carbonfiber materials around inner latch area on all of our hoods for stronger and more rigid structural.All of Advan Carbon hoods are for OFF-ROAD use only plus all rear hinges/ front latch hood require to use hood pins for safety.All of after market composites hood never been in crashed tested therefore you have to use hood pins for safety in order to use it. It is very unfortunate as no one able to tell how it happened after the incident when the incident happened without using hood pins as it could caused many factors. Most of them it probably you did not close the hood until it clicked/ locked properly. This will be easily prevented by using aftermarket hood pins.However, there is nothing can prevent when it did not latch properly as composites hood is very light weight so the wind gets in between is very strong and be able to lift the hood.Advan Carbon Technologies continues to develop quality carbon fiber products for car enthusiasts while offering private label programs for the automotive market.
