what kind of hood pins?

I know there are a lot of hood pins out there but what ones are the best? i have a new CF OEM hood with the STI scoop on a 03 WRX if that matters. There are so many different kinds out there, i would just like some good recommendations please.

thanks!

Well , if you dont want your hood to get stolen , by the kind of hood pins that have key locks .......like these eBay Motors: Universal Chrome JDM Carbon Fiber Racing Hood Lock Pins (item 250268580649 end time Jul-15-08 20:39:23 PDT)

You dont have to get carbon fiber , get what ever color you want , I used to have silver ones.

Other than the locking feature, a hood pin is a hood pin. There is not really a big difference in them. It is pin that sticks thru your hood, and that is about it.

Check out the aeromotive ones (rallysportdirect.com carries them). I would trust anything over something you get off ebay. They are flush and they have ones that lock also. I would personally go with the flush type just becuase I think it looks cleaner.
