Are you 100% positive it's a bolt on hood and not a pin on??  


Who/where did you get it??

My hood didn't have studs. It had threaded inserts that you run bolts into. I can't tell from your pic if those inserts are metal and if they are threaded. 


and whatever you do, do not try to use that hood without proper hood pins in the front or aerocatch latches 


I can't tell if they're threaded inserts either, they kind of look like regular drilled holes.  

Definitely going to be alot safer running hoodpins on that hood.

For reference, here's a pin on hood. It's literally pinned (or bolted) on from the outside. Usually attached with dzus fasteners like this one. If yours is a standard bolt on hood then you'll still want hood pins/latches at the front for security.

so a pin on hood is how the hood that you sent me goes all the way around like that??

Yes. There's a couple different ways to do it, but that's the usual way (for drag cars at least). Pin on hoods also may not have provisions for a hood latch or hinges.

doesn't look like the hood you bought is a pin on.  when you take it to the body shop, they should be able to put in threaded inserts if it doesn't have any.  from your pic, it doesn't look like it does.
