dzus fasteners

I have seen Dzus Fasteners used on a fiberglass tilt front cap. They were spring loaded and took a special tool to open. You can search under Dzus on the web. Bud

Or one of the old birds that have a backwards hood.
I think even the Vega had one of those backward hoods.

Might be pricey, but you could check out how the C4 corvettes (~84-96?) worked. They were nearly flip-noses the way the top half of the hood came up and latched at back. Advantage there is those latches were designed for a fiberglass assembly - although I'm not sure if that makes much difference.
