Re: Hood Pins

drill through the hood over some metal support. Aim for symmetrical.

Re: Hood Pins

I'm installing 2 sets 1 in the front 1 in the back. My concern is more the back set. I don't know where to drill and have never done these before.

Re: Hood Pins

I'd check to see where the pin hole (on the pins) will clear the hood. American Muscle has a great write up for the fronts. For the backs you will have to find a spot. I've never done this so this is probably how I would go about doing it.

Struts towers might work. With the hood popped open move the pin around to see where the pin will stick out high enough it will pin latch. You might have to get some new hardware, maybe a spacer to raise it up if nothing works.

Just remember to measure four times cut once. I think they suggest using a grease pen for markings. Lay it all out and only when you are truly happy with the results then I'd say commit to doing it.
