Doing lots of prep for the 2017 rallycross season here in New England, which begins in a month or so. Replacing all the leaky gaskets & boots, rewiring some gauges, and surely some more stuff will pop up as I tinker...

BUT today’s task, hood pins. I don’t trust the janky factory hood latch so much anymore as it doesn’t always want to latch on the first 3 tries. I picked up a sparco hood pin set & am planning on installing tonight. But I’m also a scaredy pants about drilling the hood, so I’m calling upon the collective experience here for any tips/advice on tackling it. It seems simple enough but I have a full work day between now and then so figured I would ask!
