    Does this mean you havent figured why it would pop up on it's own? Please check the cable release and the latch mounted on the hood itself. If possible, please share some pics

    fa as i can see..
    either the loop on the hood gave way
    or somehow due to flex and (exaggerated by the hood struts) slipped through the improperly latched hood

    Yes,now still cannot figure out why the hood is open when driving. My friend suspect is when I go over a hump or pothole causing it to loose and pop up.

    For now it don't have any issue. I will switch to a stock wira bonet & bumper since the fiber bonet is cracking.
    And the Old mivec Bumper I will sell it to cover up my expenses. Hahahahaha

    Please share pics of the locking mechanism. Having a hood pop up on it's own is a scary affair.

    There's fibre copy which can be had for quite cheap but I cant recommend fibre. Either way, you need a new grille

    There's 2 round rubber for hood. Check either is worn out or too high. It kept the hood tight while work as damper when you close.

    Also, even if the lock releases by itself the secondary spring loaded lock should still secure it in place up to certain point.

    stock is best la bro. Less attention from cops and although fibre is light - the performance gains is negligle if your engine has cukup ooomph.
