I just drilled a small pilot hole in the hood pin mounting bracket, then put the hood on the car to get an idea of where the pin will come through.

I have no idea what it's supposed to look like, so can you take a quick measurement from the front & side of your hood and tell me what those measurements are.

I think I've got it centered on the bracket (old style), but I don't want it to look "off".

Thanks.....Dan

dan,
What you want to do is measure in from the body with the hood off to gauge ABOUT the middle of the steel plate, put the hood on and make a mark approximately. Then center the holes side to side and so on, I'm around 5" back and 3.5" in from the side. It's more important to be the same on the hood than centered in the plate, just as long as you're around the middle.
Hope this helps.

chris bailey.
