A close call on the way to work this morning. Yesterday I was showing someone the engine compartment in my DD CJ. Never drove it till this am. It was dark, and raining, noticed the hood vibrating. Darn, forgot the latches. Only got to 35 mph or so.
Had it not been for the newly installed snow plow lights, I never would have noticed. The factory lights show a very small amount of reflection.
Lucky for me the hood didn't come up.
Another mile would have put me at 60, and a 35 mph head wind.
