semi hood latches??? where can get em\'-or ideas

I am finishing up mu hummer kit truck and am looking into using semi truck hood latches and centering system to hold down the hood. I may also use them on my cj with the tild=t forward 1 piece hood as well. I can't seem to find them anywhere....anyone got any ideas for latches (military surplus wants $300 set!!!) -or any latch ideas?

Thanks
~~TIM~~

Might try looking for a Freightliner, Peterbuilt or Kenworth dealer in your area. They should have them. Or maybe on line.

Try a truck junkyard. There is one by me with tons of cool stuff.
