Default 1967-1969 fiberglass hood

Hello, I hope I am not repeating any old discussion, but has anyone successfully made a fiberglass hood for a 68 Firebird work with the factory hood hinges and hood latch? I can get a good deal on a brand new fiberglass replacement hood for 75.00, but it was "made to be used with hood pins", according to the seller. I do not want to use hood pins, at all, since this is my street/strip car. Any thoughts?

If you want to use hinges and latch. you can fiberglass in some support bars. and a plate for the latch. If you can get a nice hood for 75$$ would definitly grab it. Normally there a few hundred dollars. Or make a tubular bracket that supports the hinges and latch. then bolt hood to it, if your not up to fiberglass work.
