Has any one had problems with the hood pin wires scratching the hood? They appear that they would bounce around in the wind, damaging the hood. If you have some, and have had them for a while, (damaging) yes or no?
I do indeed have functional pins. My hood was flapping at the corners when I pushed it over 90 mph, and it was real ugly when I buried the needle. Uhhh, I mean it would be real ugly if I were ever to go that fast. Heh.I hear you there. So you actually have functioning pins? I was only thinking about getting the ones for the appearance. But since you have real ones, how hard were they to install? Just some drilling?
I did mine with a 3/8" hand drill. I did have new bits though. Oh and I used a step bit for the bigger main pin holes.My shelby pins should be in today or tomorrow, I'm getting that same flapping that you mentioned Zip. Unfortunately I only have a hand drill and old bits at home, and I'm not going to risk drilling through my hood with those, so I'll just fork out the $100+ for someone else to drop them in.
lmao :lolYea, it isn't to say I couldn't do it, I'm just incredibly tentative to mess with that. We'll see though, I'll be back home this weekend to go to the track and my neighbor across the street is a Ford Dealership master mechanic, with a 12-pack of....*soda* I may be able to convince him to help out.
