As all Jeep owners know, the hood bounces around when driving against windy conditions. A recent thread about this had some great suggestions to reduce the movement and I just thought about a very easy way to stabilize the hood when driving against the wind.
Any fix to reduce hood movement while driving would probably reduce unnecessary stress to the hood hinges and the hood itself.
So....here's what I'm planning....
I will fabricate some rubber pads that are slightly thicker than the gap between the hood and the grill when shut and glue these pads to the places where the hood shuts so that there will be pressure/resistance when clamping the hood shut with the hood latches. (I still have to figure out the best thickness of the rubber pads to cut and glue so that the hood stays shut with no wobble at all).
This has to be good for hood parts, hood, hinges, latches, etc.
What do you guys think?
