I saw somewhere on this site that someone mentioned where hood latches could be bought. I need them for my Pete 281 butterfly hood. now I can't find that thread. Anyone have an idea where it was or what aftermarket company makes them? Thanks for any help.

Plaskit makes some nice ones. You may also want to check out the Sourkrauts. He may have some in stock.
