I just received a new hood lip molding, but my 'glass hood doesn't have holes drilled to mount it. It requires six holes to be drilled, but I don't want to booger up my hood with trial and error. Is there a template available? If not, does anyone have their hood where I can get some measurements? TIA.

My stock 69 hood has 8 holes, 4 per side for the lip moulding, each hole is 1/4" x 1/2" they're elongated. With a measuring tape on the outside edge of the hood, the first hole begins at 1 & 1/8" continuing along 2nd hole begins at 7 & 1/2" next hole begins ay 13 & 3/4" last begins at 19 & 1/4" then just reverse this for the other side.

Template or placement of hood louvers

Hey Taz,
Perhaps you can help me out also. I'd like to sorta SS clone my '71 (At least the hood) I love the look the hood louvers give the 3rd Gen's. Is there a template I can get on locations to drill the holes, or would you happen to know? Thanks in advance.

When you open your hood you'll notice 2 of the 6 holes are already in the hood bracing too!
