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 these items do not securely latch when closed, this can cause a dangerous situation where the hood flies up while driving and causes significant 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.
We can only warranty OEM parts on any car. Some aftermarket items are not DOT approved and will not pass inspection.
If your not sure if your hood is OEM and came on the car from the factory, look for the part# label. If your part doesn't have this label, your car hood has been replaced before and will fall under this safety precaution.
