    Are hood pins on a DD unnecessary? I'd like to put a black set on mine. I think it'd look sick with the bright orange and black pins.

    I read if you have hood pins, it shouldn't see rain? I don't see an issue with a little rain going in....rain splashed up from below anyhow I'm sure.

    "necessary" is relative. They're not really "necessary", but I have them on my DD and they give me a lot of peace of mind!

    Yeah, MD likes their salt. Luckily in the winters I have been at school and my driving was quite limited.

    Yeah keep in min that not all stainless is going to resist rust equally. 304 stainless is basic consumer grade and will rust with relatively low exposure to corrosive environment. 316 stainless contains more nickel and is exponentially more resistant to corrosion.

    Yeah, I'm still debating on how much to spend. to me $100 bucks for hood pins is a bit ridiculous.
