I can't stress it enough. Take your time and measure a lot. Install is tedious but doable.
2013 WRX Locking Hood Pins

Very happy with these hood pins. I installed them on my Seibon carbon fiber hood and they not only look great but are a must have for carbon fiber hoods. Install was not as bad as i thought. I used my factory rubber hood stop location (one on each side just above the headlights) to install the pins instead of having to drill holes, then tightened them down with the supplied hardware. I then added a dab of grease to the top of the pins and set my hood down on them to mark the hood for the holes. I then drilled a hole just big enough for the pins to fit through and test fitted. Once the hole is drilled and the pins are sticking through the hood use template to mark out the hole for the top side of the hood for the latch itself. Make sure its perfect cause you can only cut once! I used a dremel with cutting wheel to cut the hole and it worked great. Once hole is cut out you can mount the latches with supplied hardware. Adjust pins to the right height so that your hood sits flush with your fenders and make sure to use provided rubber stops. Double check everything and you should be good to go!

I had these put on my '04 STI with a CF hood. They look great and work perfect!

I purchased these for my 04 STI and they are unbelieveable! I used the pre-drilled holes just a little inwards of the factory bump stops and it worked perfect. I went ahead and got the locking latches and did away with my factory hood latch. Not very hard to install just time consuming.
