    I need to find a hood lock, be it a locking hold down or whatever. What do you guys use and recommend?

    Sleep in the cruiser Joey. You won't rest if you leave it alone.

    I'm also grappling with the hood lock idea. I haven't really seen anything cool yet, but still researching...

    83+ 40 series came with a hood lock, like on a fj60, if you can find one of those and all the bits for it, that would be slick. I asked Marv if he had any, all he had was for RHD 40's.

    Pimp, you forgot your own personal hood lock.

    How about spring loaded knives by the hood latch
    Kinda Indiana Jones ish. But effective.
