Usually the pins go on the headlight backet. Install the pins and close the hood. Mark the place for the holes. Drill it from the top with a small drill bit. Then a larger one. I recommand you use some tape. Painter tape work best.

I just finish installing some hood lock on a friend carbon hood. So yeah....

thanx for replying.....
those basic steps i know...

im looking for advise on:

1. drill from the inside out?
2. start from a extremely small bit to a large bit?
3. use only high-end expensive drill bit cuz its CF ur drilling thru?
4. only use 1 brand new expensive bit for drilling 1 hole and use another new bit for another hole?
5. precautions of NOT cracking the CF
6. ????? and other steps i dont know....


any one has pics of hood pins on a 96/98 Ek civic cf hood?

theres two places where people install them - closer to the latch or further up the headlites?

Drill from the top. Put tap on the hood. Let the drill bit do the work. Don't force it.

\I hate pins and I would'nt waste a good Carbonie Fibre hood by drilling it. Just use the integrated factory latch on the bottom side Bro. My VIS is used and the stupid FOOL drilled it out for pins for now I've got to use the pins, but not by choice.
