Ok so i bought a red 04 mustang hood scoop of a gt that was wrecked in a rear end collision so it cost me 100 shipped from mps auto salvage so im going to get it painted metallic silver to match but my question is since the 99-01 hoods don't have the pre-drilled holes whats the best way to go about installing this, i have seen a bunch of install diagrams but non for a 99 or 00, so could someone help me out and let me know what the best way to go about doing this would be, i know it has 11 holes but what is aligned where? also i bought the matte black hood decal from american muscle i can't wait to get that on, it will make the hood look so sick with my mach 1 chin spoiler and new gt fog lights!! thanks for all the help guys, love this forum!!

The rear two holes have little circles in the underside of the hood. what i did was take a piece of cardboard and press the bolts down into it so they left holes. this made a drilling template for the hood. double check it all lines up with the under section of the hood and start drilling. good luck!
ok thanks guys, everything comes thursday, my hood scoop, my hood decal, my new radio bezel (old paint is fading) and my fog light button!!! can't wait, going to be a busy day, hopefully i can finish it all in between classes lol ill post pics when i finish, but ill prolly have to wait until monday for my hood scoop to be finished painting, poop!
ok i dont know how to make the dumb image smaller, but just posting a pic of the installed hood scoop on my 00 v6, overall simple install but took a long tedious process, i started out with the small drill bit size and worked my way up until i got the needed size to have the hood scoop centered and flush with the hood, the size bolts that are angled are and absolute pain in the ***, its horrible, but thank god for washers, it came out wonderful!
thanks bro i actually forgot to mention i took the hood off the car, it made life SOOO much easier, allowed me to measure everything and i also used automotive masking tape around the areas i would be drilling so it doesn't hurt the clearcoat and plus it doesn't scratch up your hood, those pins can really do some damage im sure if you let them scrape your hood, but well worth it!!!
