So the fiberglass holding the latch broke off while i was driving. Now my question is it repairable

Or is it time for a new hood

It can most likely be repaired by a decent body man. Question is how much and how much do you like the hood? Pics would help.

wowzers... i say have a fiberglass guy fix the cracks for you.

i wouldnt worry about the latches just run these, as long as your hinge mounts are still good

idk how handy you yourself are...

but ide just fiberglass it myself, and there the big crack up front is, just go and completely box it off... smooth it all out, and have it painted...

and then come up with some sort of clean hood pin setup...

I know a guy who had just had his mustang hood done, and the same thing happened on the interstate...

makes me weary about my harwood hood... im debating pinning it myself just to be safe (as my 2 year old typically rides around with me)
