Default Hoodpins Installed - Slight Twist from normal

Finally did the install.
Ordered Shelby style pins from Laurel Mountain - Billet Hoodpins

Then had them engraved with my car Build #6451, and the Bullitt logo.

Cost me about $150 all said and done.
$105 shipped for the hoodpins
$19 for the engraving
$25 for the Bi-Metal Hole saw and some aluminum hardware

Install was really easy. Just bolt the radiator brace up, and do some drilling. I'm overall pretty satisfied with everything. Kinda annoyed at the engraver though. I was intending to fill in the lettering with black paint, but he didn't do the lettering deep enough. So the letters are only partly filled in for now.

Still, came out pretty nicely IMO

nice!
i have hood pins also but i decided to take off the lanyards and i think is a much cleaner look to go with my car..

i dont see the point in the engraving if you plan to put a different cars front end....

because I like how they smile

I want do it like MellowYellow did originally. just the upper/lower bumper, and grille/headlights. stock hood.

that way the change is subtle. keeping the hood I have.
