C.F. Hood problem

I just bought OEM style CF hood. it fights but it doesnt fit prefect. 1 side go goes up and when i drive it shakes. Any know what to do? would pins press my hood down?

Many CF hoods just fit like that...

Yes, you can try pins, that would more than likely help.

if one side is lifting you can try adjusting the hood latch on the car to see if its lining up with the latch on the hood if its not perfect it can sometimes make the hood tilt one way when closed. also try adjusting (up or down) the rubber "cushion" on the left and right on the radiator support.

mine use to be like that it was moving up and down. i found out it was the hangar part that attaches to the car. the cf hood latch diameter is too thin. i had to wrap some duck tape to it to make it stop bouncing up and down

I have a VIS CF Hood on my 2nd Gen CL-S and it's normal for that shaking after a certain speed.

I would recommend hood latches rather than hood pins.
