    On my '88 I got a small problem that needs some attention. On the front edge, the ends look like the hood is going to fly open at highway speeds. If I screw the stops out to where the hood doesn't flap around, I have a devil of a time getting the blasted hood to open. Anybody know of a cure for this? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I'm just shootin from the hip here so y'all are welcome to call me an idiot but if I remember correctly the little bump stop things are sposed to be relatively soft. If you're havin that hard of a time closin the hood maybe they've gotten all hard and are no longer pliable. Like I said just a thought. Good luck to y'all.
