I want to install hinges without the latch and use the hood pins to secure.
The hood is fiberglass. Any special considerations? Would I epoxy a metal strip to mount hinges?
Can someone send me a pic of the hinge mount locations?
Any assistance would be appreciated.

If it's not a hood that was made to 'bolt on', you'll have to get creative and figure a way to attach it... but the problem is, 'pin on' hoods are (typically) flimsier than bolt-on hoods and lack the same stiffness, so using hinges even with low-tension springs can cause them bend/warp/crack.
Good luck on your project!
