This thing sat almost a year with an exploded ballencer. Finally got around to repair, and working out all other bugs! Last night after VC gasket install, test drive, hood wasn't latched all way,(my dumb ***), blew up bout 45mph. Got it shut and home and quit. Today hood repair attempt, got it lined back up to close and latch, but the rear side hinge to hinge brace has came unglued? Is their a fix? Its a beat up farm/fishing truck, but I like to keep it mechanically sound. I thought bout drilling through hood and brace and using rivets or bolts. Don't care how it looks, as long as it works. Or is their a correct way to repair?
