Hi Jeff, After an accident with my SLC several years ago, I had to replace the hood, headlights, grill, front cross member, radiator and AC condensor, the hood latch assembly had also been trashed, I could not find these parts anywhere from VW dealers or salvage yards so I carefully drilled my hood and installed a hood pin kit which was very popular with muscle cars back in the 70s, it works great and looks pretty cool too and you dont have to fool around with that goofy assembly that was originally used on the vehicle.
Some people may be hesitant to modify the hood this way but it brought my vehicle back to operating condition and it was very functional and reliable, you dont have to worry about the hood releasing at high speeds. Good luck with your repair, The Big LaBowski.
