If properly hooked, it couldnt have opened on it's own. Then again, it's a Mivec hood and I believe you need to mod the hook a bit. Rather than look at it as bad luck, you should think of it as fortunate; you could have been going much faster.
I had check the hood everytime before I drive. Juz a small push down and tarik to check will it pop up

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

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

Engine kuat can already
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.

Tomorrow I will take a picture. My latch is single only not double.
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.
