  different approach
  Posted by: Mattt on Jul-09-13 9:11 AM (EST)
 

I have the webbing loops attached to bolts method
but that is a "permanent" solution, as I carry boats a lot.

if you want a quicker fix, just get some one inch tubular webbing (REI, hardware stores, boat shops, climbing shops) - take a 12" or so length, bend in half and tie the two ends into an overhand knot - set in place so that when the hood is closed, the knot will hold the loop in place.

no matter which method, you will want to put a piece of soft cloth (like a piece of old t-shirt) between the webbing and the vehicle to keep the paint from getting scratched up - it should stay in place when you put tension on that bow rope.
