Default Firehawk Hood latch

Where can I locate a 2002 firehawk safety hood latch? I have called SLP, Billy Graham's Camaro & Firebirds, and also Hawks 3rd gen with no luck.

The firehawk latch is different. Instead of lifting the handle up to open the hood, there is a ring that actually pulls out.

I am having the same issue. I have the same latch handle your talking about and no one seems to have it or have heard of it. It looks like it was just a rod bent in a square shape powder coated black? I was going to buy some material to see if I could re-make just the handle part.
