So, after I received my hood (the first one) with the wrong threaded inserts for the latch pins, I spent two days trying to re-tap or remove them with great aggervation. They would not come out and when I tried to tap them, of course the glue joint broke and they spun, but still would not come out. After regluing 4 or 5 times I finally tapped all the way through and got the thing mounted. You can see it here:
***subsequent hoods will have correct threaded inserts, btw :p***

Don't mean to plug shamelessly, but this is history in the making :) Ok, maybe not, but it's pretty cool, anyway.

Looks really good! Is it true that the resin is a bit nasty?

Don't worry, yours will be made with the right ones. Re-tapping is not really feasible.

so Ben how do you like the site?
told you it would be better than audiworld :wink:
Can't complain. It doesn't cut into my social life like AW can. However, there are more potential customer there which means I can pay rent and make my car faster. :bullshits:
