These FRPP hood pins are installed, finally. I chose to use the old hood bump rest holes to ensure symmetry and not have to drill new holes. The only problem with that is that it makes the pins too low for them to work correctly when the hood is lowered.
I had to use some grade 8 bolts to extend the pin distance and add some bolt couplers. Then, when the pin bolts were fully screwed down into the couplers, they were too long when the hood was lowered. I had to cut about 1/2" off of the FRPP pin bolts.
After about 3 hours of measuring, mock-ing stuff up, drilling and a trip to the hardware store, these things are installed. The kit came with two plates; one guide plate and one hood plate. I definitely recommend using the guide plate on the holes under the hood. All in all, they work great and look good (and many lessons learned).
What do you guys think?
