The Engine Lid Just Popped Open ... ??

Happy New Years Guys!
Today & as always and outta the blue, my engine lid popped open at a stop sign.
I closed it ... but to no avail ... it popped open at the next stop sign.
I cable tied it down and tried to fix it when I got home.
It appears that the bottom delta of the 90 degree turn of the latch sheared off.
No adjustment forward does the trick.
I tried to bend a bolt and make a repair but they break off, even when heated.
Anyone have a latch bolt?
This is really embarrasing...
Anyways. I can't check oil without a new cable tie and wire cutters. Sheesh!
Thanks,
Rick
God Bless & Happy 2009 to all my 914 Brothers ...
