I was sick of the hood flutter on the highways. The wife nearly passes out everytime a huge truck passes by and the hood starts bouncing. Not to mention in Southern Alberta, we're known as Chinook counrty, which means Windy, windy, windy. Like 100 km/h winds. So I was looking into buying the Daystar hood latches for $25 which seemed like a great deal. However shipping to Canada is $67. Not such a great deal.
So I removed the hood spring, and did the tie strap mod, and abracadabra, no more hood lift!!! Cost me $1.25. I may have to replace the strap every so often, but it's cheap and it works. It doesn't even look too bad. Highly recommend this mod if you ever find yourself out on the highway.
