Anyone have a source for the "Bear Claw" style hood latch on the Willys Aero. The teeth on mine are fine, but the paw they engage is worn and the latch won't hold. Anyone have a good used one from a parts car they would part with?

Probably best to replace both upper and lower. I can see the teeth worn on the upper, not sure about the lower. Thanks for getting back to me.
