“This [pack] you get the support rods that hold the hood up when it is in the open position. You will then be able to attach the hood to the combined front wings.”
This image includes the parts for the entire issue. However, the parts included with this pack are:
- Left Hood Support Rod
- Right Hood Support Rod
- Left Hood Support Rod Mount
- Right Hood Support Rod Mount
This pack comes with one bag of unlabeled screws containing the following type(s):
- Three (3) Type T – These are a NEW type of screw
The Hood Support Rods
Run one (1) Type T screw through each Hood Support Rod Mount, as shown.
We are not going to follow the magazine, nor the PDFs for this one. Thanks to a suggestions from one of my visitors, Frank, we are going to run the screw through the holes in each Hood Support Rod and then into the mounts. This not only holds the rod more securely, but it gives it some friction so these rods to not flop around as we are working on the front end:
Keep these rod assemblies nearby as we will need them in the next pack. The rods are metal and the mounts are plastic.
