AM Hood Pins Ruin Paint?

So I want to buy some hood pins for my black 2012 Mustang from American Muscle. Here's the link:

Modern Billet Black Mustang Hood Pin Appearance Kit (05-14 All) - Free Shipping

Now my question is, will adhering these to my car ruin my paint or finish if they should ever fall off or get removed? Ideally I'd want them to stay on forever, but you never know. Supposedly they stick on with 3m tape (included).

Thanks!

It won't ruin the paint since its automotive paint that is made to adhere to paint. Really not different then an emblem. The only thing that would worry me is if you keep it on long enough and take it off it's likely it will be noticeable due to slight paint fading/ exposure to the elements which the covered area wouldn't be exposed to.

Hey Alex,

Great question and they absolutely will not harm your paint! The Hood Pin Appearance Kit is going to adhere with 3m double sided adhesive so in the event that you're going to have them taken off in a few months or years you'll only see some residual from the adhesive which can be removed with (dental floss, goo-gone/goof off/3m adhesive remover) and then you can finish it up with some quick detailer!

Let me know if you're to have any other questions at all and I'm here to help!

Alex
