i got my chrome mopar hood pins from luke almost 3 years & my r/t sits outside & they are still in great shape. love the old school look. in fact the are much better quality than the pins that i had in the '70's. i just wish the black ones where more than just a black base. on my yellow jacket it would look great all black but the combo of black & chrome for the peg & pin just doesn't work for me.

Agreed. Doesn't work for my PCP too as well. Maybe we can have it powder coated? Just a thought.

i had same thought & was told that the powder coat would come off the pin fairly quickly due to how tight it fits in the peg & the taking it in & out. would love to see someone who tried it & it worked.

Ok so just so I get the right and don't freak out during the install...Im getting ready to install these tomorrow and from what im reading it will be necessary to pull the pins slightly forward to keep them from hitting the plate and closing correctly do to the angle..... is that correct?

I didn't have to on mine. The holes you drill are much larger than the pin. Which account for the hood arc. You only have to worry about lining up the 3M plate on the hood itself.

There's room for error when drilling. Due to the larger holes. Not when you stick the plates on, the holes are closer to the pin size. That's where you have to line the holes up correctly.

Mopar probably changed venders….I didn't mind as I fabricate stuff all the time and wasn't a problem, but may be for someone else. I got the best deal with discount from you guys!

Ok so before I go a drilling 8221 4260 Ab -001 is the correct part number right? 2016 rt shaker Ps check out the photo I think they are now making these kits with the pins at a slight angle to help with fitment? Others I've seen were completely vertical these have a slight tilt to the front
