are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

installed my first cf hood today. its an authentic seibon and looks great. at first the rubber stops needed some adjustment on the upper rad support behind the lights. then a little adjustment for the latch and presto. then i head off down the highway and the hood and the hood is flexing all over the place. looks like the engine bay is inflating a balloon. so i looked around and found that a lot of guys with cf hoods have pins and sellers are including them as a bonus or free gift or whatever. so as the title states, optional, required, fosho or a good idea.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

I've heard people saying the carbon fiber shakes and bends at high speeds without the pins. Mine has pins and never does any of that at high speeds.

^^ pretty much.

you can get aerocatch pins as well as bottom plates vs individual bolts from JDM Honda Parts, JDM Honda Engines / JDM Nissan Motor Swaps, Used JDM Parts | Password JDM (as much as i hate that site)

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

Ive heard of a few CF hoods eventually cracking where the latch is. I have never witnessed it first hand but I would rather not have my hood flying up at 70+mph. Aerocatch does make some nice pins IMO, Unfortunately they are kinda pricey.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

Ive had no problems with my seibon hood. without any pins.

but I thought that I put cooling plate there that it would little bit prevent air hitting to the hood from below

i think the best words to say to your question would be "highly recommended" over optional and required. that my opinion.

I had a VIS hood back in the day and did not have any problems. Went to outer states at hight speeds and was OK. Some people had problems and some people did not. Luck of the draw I guess.

Agreed 10000%.

Yes plenty of ppl have been fine for XXX amount of years.
Other's have had the latch fail, hood fly up at high speed, and destroy the hood, windshield, and roof.


Your call.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

I had my CF hood in the beginning without pins. I was racing for fun on the Northern state parkway with another Prelude and cf hood started to shake left n right as if it was experiencing turbulence!

Since then I bought hood pins and now hittin that same speed it holds it down pretty well!

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

thanks for all the great input guys. i may just put my old hood back on till i get pins sorted out. one thing i noticed right away when i put the hood on is the clearance around the lights. oem hood has the rubber seals around the lights as well as a seal type deal that goes across the rad support. i noticed that the seibon hood looks like it has some plugs for the seal around the lights but not for the one on the rad support. it almost looks like they painted over the plugs. dont know. has anyone installed these seals on a cf hood.

as for the aerocatch, anyone have pics of them on our hood. i went to their site and somehow found a link to a guy with a mustang i think. he had it on a relatively flat part of the hood and it looked ok.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

I personally think the things are uglier than sin. Even the Aero-Catch ones. I also believe that the quality and brand of the hood is a major factor. Hypothetically speaking, if Mugen or Spoon made carbon fiber hoods for our cars, I'm willing to bet that they'd fit like a glove, without hood pins. There's plenty of track cars that run OEM-Spec CF hoods without pins. However, all 3rd-party aftermarket hoods should have pins.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

its not the quality of the hood at all. the fitment is 100% spot on. the curves are identical, the spacing around the hood between it and the fenders is perfectly equal. from what ive heard, seibon and vis are top notch manufacturers. i noticed the differences in the hoods the minute i picked it up. way lighter and way more flexible. on a steel hood you need to put some weight on the hood to bend anything. with the cf, it rolls like a wave when i waxed it. when im driving at highway speed its not rattling, shifting or banging around like a steel one might. its literally distorting and flexing as i pass trucks and hit a bit of turbulence. i can clearly see how the hood pins will help its just not something i was expecting. i do agree with you vanz that generally, hoods look better without pins and the plastic aerocatch latches regardless of cost will cheapen the look. now if there was a cf version or chrome i might be down with it though. id have to see it. thanks though for your thoughts.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

Yes, Seibon makes good carbon products. That post wasn't aimed at any specific brand. Although quality still remains an issue. It just so happens that Seibon is a good brand. That was a relatively broad post, I was just making a generalization about hood pins and whether or not they're required. But yes, make sure to pick up some hood pins. Personally, the regular kind look better than the Aero-Catch do. Also avoid "flashy" colors; they're hood pins, nothing more, nothing less. A plain anodized black or gunmetal will flow nicely with the carbon fiber.

Re: are hood pins for a cf hood optional or required

Dr J I've had my JSP CF hood for a year and a half and have had no problems in the winter or summer without hood pins. It flexes and wavers but it's held up with high speeds on the hwy. I don't think you'll need it but if you really insist on installing hood pins, then get the Carbon Fiber AeroCatch flush mount ones. Those ones look alright.

Talked to a guy at Seibon not too long ago and he said that all Carbon Fiber parts are like snow flakes and no two are alike. That might explain why what was good for you didn't work for someone else.
