Since plans did not come together on finishing the air ducting, as I have to bend 2 pieces of aluminum water piping so I can keep the number of couplers and hose clamps reasonable. I installed the Christmas present I got from my wife. This solves my problem of losing the factory striker/latch, I fought the good fight but in the end the radiator and the fan shroud fit but the latch needs 1/4 inch more clearance and I am not cutting the ducting down to make that happen.

hood pins in rear hatch test fit

All the mounts are made but still need final locating and welding.

After welding and adjustment, should look like this

These are available as a locking version so I plan on getting one more set and mixing one locking and on non locking to do front and rear.

Yes they are easy on the eyes. They won out over a 2nd choice of latch because these are made in
USA and all metal.
And thanks.

Yup.


Mounts for the pins are one with the car
