New Hood Pin Kits from Daystar Products

Racers and recreational off-roaders can appreciate the value of high-quality hood attachments. Whether you’re barreling down a remote desert road at 85 mph or on a rocky trail with trees constantly threatening your truck’s sheetmetal, I think we all would prefer that our rig’s hood stay put. Daystar’s new Hood Pin Kits are the perfect solution for keeping fiberglass and steel hoods secure yet easily removable.

Daystar’s Hood Pin Kits utilize Polyurethane grommets that help keep the hood isolated from its attachment points. Without these grommets, fiberglass hoods tend to crack around their mounting points. The grommet allows a certain amount of give that enables the fiberglass to flex as needed, yet still maintain a positive attachment. The kit includes a 5/8″ diameter steel pin along with stainless steel fasteners to attach the grommet to the hood. A spring retaining clip rounds out the kit.

The Daystar Hood Pin Kits are sold individually since not everyone uses an even number of hood pins (i.e. some racers use three across the front). Part number KU71104BK is a complete hood pin kit that includes everything needed for one pin (grommet, pin, and related hardware). Since racing by necessity is hard on equipment, Daystar also offers the hood pin components individually. And at just $18.95 each for the complete kit, they are made with the budget racer in mind!
