We personally have done 4 of our own cars in the last 3 months with em, 2 are daily drivers that travel the Parkway daily at speeds in excess of 75mph on their commutes. If the hood is a quality piece that uses factory mounting locations i see no need for unsightly hood pins... :sad:

All 4 hoods we used are made by VIS.... i have yet to find new hood struts that are rated properly for the CF hood unfortunately. Simply mount to all existing points and use the factory hardware and you shouldn't have any issues.

Allignment took a few attempts and everything else went in fine. Good luck and if you feel safer with hood pins by all means get em but personally i'd chuck the hood if i had to use pins...lol. But thats just me!! :thumbup:
