66-67 427 Hood Installation
I've got the Crire Hood on my Fairlane, and with hinges attached (minus springs), original hood latch. Everything lines up fine with no binding. I use a hood prop. As far as cutting the hole, marking from the carb stud will ultimately get you close, however, be sure to figure in the slope that the hood closes at once the hole is in, and adjust the hole C/L accordingly prior to cutting. Could move center line as much as an inch, depending if your using a carb spacer or not. For hood pins, I simply stuck a little q-tip to the tip of the pin, and magic marker to the tip, lower hood, and viola. With hole clearnce it'll get ya there. Good luck.
