Just looking for info on what you guys not running a rear apron are using for a rear deck lid latch, if anything?

Thanks

I built a rear mount/bracket and use a hood pin/clip.
But my stuff is longer than most.. Laughing

Very well done! I have not figured that out on my 66 ( running a 67 deck lid), but I will do something as I don't want it bouncing around at speed. Maybe a long prop rod that hooks back to the firewall? Barrel bolt near the hinge?

Thanks for the replies. I have been thinking the hood pin idea might just work best. Your set up is nice, thanks again.
