Did you buy pick up another one?
What made you stud the oil pan?
Any tips to installing the hood pins??? I don't want to make a mistake and mess up a new VIS hood .
A "BIG" help, thanks. I hadn't seen the thread so I appreciate it!Im sure you seen this thread.
But I made a cardboard template. I also used the radiator bracket support holes to thread in the hood pin. The issue I had was the pins had to be at a angle. So I had to encourage them into the right angle. You can use a dab of paint, anitseize, toothpaste or whatever you choose to put on top of the pin to see where it hits in the bottom of the hood. I like using the rad bracket holes because then you dont have to drill a extra hole. Plus you dont need to put a nut on the bottom to lock it in. It just made most sense given there symmetrical as well. Make sure you do your best to drill the holes even. If you dont the bracket wont fit right. The hardest part for me, was cutting the skeleton on the bottom of the hood. I hope this helps.
