I just installed Mopar hood pins (thanks Steve White Motors). Look awesome but how high should I have the pins?(pressure on the escutcheons or a little higher)
I just got my pins in today. I was gonna have a body shop do the install for me, but everyone's quoting $150-$300, which is straight bananas. I'm installing on a T/A hood so I'm a bit nervous drilling into the satin finish. Any input on prep? I feel like I don't want to wipe any of that down with alcohol like the instructions recommend.
Also, how many people actually use the touch-up paint for corrosion prevention?
That's exactly right - plus it's carryover from the original design. I like the look of the pins with the cables.Question: Why are the cables necessary? Just to help keep track of the hood pins? Are the cables just aesthetics? It seems like deleting them would solve the rubbing the paint problem.
