Hood pins, need ideas pic??

I just received my Shelby black pins, I'm debating where exactly to place them. I was thing close to the end by the head lights or more to the center like on top of the fog lights.

Any recommendations or pic of your pins.
Thanks. I'm planning to get them professionally installed by next week. But I need to know where I want them๐Ÿ˜

Over the fog lights would be the easiest to install but I think over the headlight would be better looking and more effective.

You really should consider doing the install yourself. It's really not that hard and if you've got basic hand tools, common knowledge and a couple hours over the weekend you could do it yourself and save some money.

I did a set of Flush mount hood pins awhile back and posted it in a thread. Let me dig it up for ya.

If they are the same Shelby hood pins that I have they are only meant to mount in one place. But I really do like them. They mount directly over the stock placement for the fog lights.

I'm not really sure but I believe there is a rubber buffer for the hood near the headlights and I have heard just drill the holes there and it mounts perfectly.

There is but I didn't want to lose the rubber stopper because it kept the lines of my hood strait with the fender.
