JD, the hood(nos) on 1154 was purchased from ford dealer back in the early 70's by the owner. no holes in hood yet for hood pin trim, just the big holes for pins. Is there questions on how these early cars trim rings were indexed?
Hey Jeremy, I think that might have been what Rod was trying to find out in his post
While the paint is still off, take a look at how the hood pin plate rivet holes are indexed. Just want to know.
and why I was chimming-in. The holes on #1453 are indexed as they "should" be (N, E, S, W or 12, 3, 6, 9 o'clock) based on what I've been able to learn and what Rod may have been trying to verify, but I'll let Rod say for himself.
Thanks for the photo/answers, good that you have another (or two) to get fixed-up and back out there.
