Welp...finished installing some aerocatch hood pin kit today, think I bought them off of someone maybe 10 years ago.....with expectations of a CF hood, said F-it and practiced on the oem hood. Need to remove the rest of the oem hood latch stuff. Put in the wrong spot, to far out, but will bring it in more center on the next hood.

Need to see who is still doing air diverter panels so I can get one with no hole in the center.

Just need an air diversion panel with no holes since I no longer will use the oem hood latch mechanism.

Ti is brittle. You need to use beauty washers to spread the load and don't over torque. Just like the 2j aluminum alternator bracket. I've also seen a GReddy carbon fiber diversion panel fade full to yellow, crack, and needs recleared. So it's all in how well you take care of your shit. I'm terrible at it, but learning how to fix and bring back to life.

You do it for the thrill of death!

Dam thankfully never had an aluminum alt bracket break. I switched to the comfy steel one before then. I also have the scc shield but currently not in use. The crack is interesting...

Well, everything done...for now...actual hardware replaced the plastic clips for the rear bumper top & bottom, had to take apart the shifter assembly to get to the grub screws to tighten them as the stick was wiggling but the new shift knob works for now on it. Everything related to the oem hood latching system is removed to include the interior cable pull and the hook/shield on the hood.

Looks nice, did you get rid of the reverse lock out? I was interested in that brand and wanted to add an extender
