The new hood is placed on the supports and the grille is installed. At this time, simply start the bolts in the brace; do not tighten them. After you have the brace bolts started, install the seven nuts on the face of the grille and tighten them. Once you have tightened them, tighten the brace bolts. Now you can install the hood latch using the supplied bolts. Don't forget to put the hood-to-radiator seal on.
