    installing hood pins, quick question

    Ok so installing hood pins on a carbon fiber hood, and im afraid of it splitting/cracking. i did search, and i found some stuff about drilling for the pin that seems okay. But, will the sheet metal screws that hold the scuff plate on grab the carbon fiber okay? (Obv ill drill a pilot hole).

    ps. Most people say "tape over where your drilling", i honestly never heard of that. It it just as it sounds? Just put some tape on the hood where ill be drilling through? Ill be drilling through the bottom first so i can mark it with grease.

    Just use plenty of tape over the area you'll be drilling and make sure your bit is sharp.
