Hood Pin Install??

I have a set of the Ford Racing hood pins from american muscle and I was just wondering if anyone has ever installed these on their 03/04 Cobra before?? I'm not tu sure exactly where to mount them. I was thinking that the best spot for them would be right through the holes in the hood where the rubber plugs are located (the hole next to the hood prop hole). But looking at it, it won't like up with anything. So I was thinking about welding on a couple brackets to the radiator mount. Just wanted to get your guys input on it and see if anyone would have a better idea on what I can do. Thanks.

I mounted the Aerofit hood pins on my car, 5 of them in fact, but I am running a fiberglass hood that lifts off without the use of the springs. I did use the points you are speaking of. They work, just have to get good nut & washer grip above and below the hole to make them work. I will tell you ... if you are only doing it for looks, let it go! That hood is very expensive to replace and those pins will be a little harder to line up. Once the hole is drilled, it will be there forever.
