installed locking hood pins

Whew...hours later, and done. The 3/4" bit through the hood was heart attack inducing.

I like how the turn signal housings were molded into the hood. I wanted to do that to my old one, but didn't keep the car long enough.

Nicely done. I would be too afraid to drill through a good hood.

The holes for a scoop are pre-determined by the supports underneath aren't they?

Hood pins are something you have to measure and pray for 37 times before actually drilling.

Not really. I measured to be able to cut my hole for the cleaner to fit through.

I measured a million times cutting through my crappy hood. I'm dreading doing it again when I get a new hood.
