Confused about something...please help me out
Carbon Fiber can't be cut or drilled which i have read because it can splinter or crack or whatever. My question is, wtf do you do about the hoodpins for the carbon fiber Hood?? are the holes already in the Hood, just have to drill the metal on the car to install the hoodpins? thanks for any help...of course i would have a professional do it if need to drill especially since the carbon fiber isn't good to breath in when cutting or breathing lol...

If you look at my profile of the supercharger pic you can see the two screws coming up from each side of the car. They have to drill a hole for those to be put in.
