    hood latch mounted above radiator is loose allowing hood to shake... tightened up bolts.. anyone know if there are supposed to be any type of nuts on backside? currently these bolts just thread into the cross bar with no nuts on back..

    Are they sticking out the back of the tie bar far enough to get conventional lock washers and nuts on them? Or is this still under the 3/36 warranty?

    Could you add locktite to the bolts if there is enough material there?

    bolts were much longer than needed. Added lock washers and nuts. Factory stripped them.
