    Second Gen Stock Hood Clearance

    Walking on metal roof

    The company that installed didn't leave any anchor points on roof? Pretty common practice to have a couple, call them and find out. At least then you can tie off.

    You can drive down the road with the speedo cable in your hand to see if its spinning. If the cop pulls you over you may have a good story.
