The hood pin itself had to be altered and lengthened. Special brackets had to be made to receive the pens. The hole in the hood had to be precise. It was a 4 day project...before paint.

All new chrome molding had to be re-done. Aftermarket molding does not fit well. We bought 4 sets and had to mix pieces from all 4 sets to get them fit in a decent way. We then sealed all around the edges to insure no wind noise or leakage.
