I recently bought a carbon fiber hood and i dont really trust the latch thats on it at high speeds, so I wanted to put in some hood pins to secure it properly, but i have no idea how to do it, any info on the positioning of them, where to mount them to the car etc would be great. Thanks

use the hood bumper (round rubber black things) locations for the hood pins and slowly drill a hole through the bottom of the hood..


take some white paint and dab it on the top of the pins and rest the hood on them so you can see where its marked.

Yeah, be easy and use a new drill bit, sharper the better. I was sloppy with mine and if I took off the stupid chrome things, it would show...
