I have an 89 Honda CRX that is solid but the guy I bought it from tried to close the hood with the rod up. The hood is all messed up. I have been searching all over the net for a replacement but have decided to go CF. The big question is quality. There are so many to choose from and they cover the entire price range. Does anyone out there have any suggestions. I am not sure if I want hood pins. Any horror stories out there?
