I believe the rear most holes that go through the frame in the hood are actully already punched through the frame but not the outer skin yet. I think all you have to do is drill those hole though the line the hood grills up with them and mark and drill the rest of the holes....good luck:)

On most 68 hoods the holes in the bracing frame are not there. If it's a 69 you should be ok. Real SS hoods also have two additional braces spot welded to that inner frame to support the weight of the louvers. I think classic is repoping them now.

ya I have seen the brackets being repoped now. I think a couple of the different reproduction parts places sell them:)

BTW good tip about the '68 hood not having the holes punched in the frame...those darn '68's just like being difficult:rolleyes:

EDIT...I went out and looked at mine and it is not the rear most holes that go through the frame it is the front most....sorry about the misinformation...

Crap all I wanted to do here was edit my one post but it wont allow me to edit it for some reason..oh well this works..
