Meh braces weren't too bad, you just have to brush more often with messier foods. As well as avoid the stickier candies like Dots and such.

What sucks is if you have to go with adjustments for over or underbites. Whether they decide to have you on rubber bands or an herbst based appliance, you pretty much can't eat large foods without cutting them into smaller bites. You can try but the bands either break, get gunked up or some herbst variations slip out and require you to fit them back in.

Braces are easy...

It's the jaw surgery followed by massive swelling of the face, liquid diet for 6 weeks, and physical and speech therapy in order to sound normal again that sucks.

Seriously? You'd think that whoever lowered it would know better.

Sorry to hear that, bro.

I had pins on the old hood, but was able to stop the shop from reinstalling then when my car was repaired.

The pins where already installed on the hood when I picked it up. Otherwise, I prefer the clean look of a pin free hood. What has really confused me over the years, is people with stock hoods and pins.....????

Sort of sketchy working hood latch... But I guess it's there >_>

But it doesn't always work on the first go... Hence hoodpins I suspect.

Yup cause NASCAR is the only type of race car with hood pins.

that being said I don't see the need for them myself in the sense of how we use em locally.
