Default Questions about pin-on hoods

I have an ASCD WS6 hood waiting for install...

What all would I need to make this a pin-on? How much extra would it cost and what all is involved, can I keep the factory hood supports and just swap the latch for the pins? Also where can I get parts, is this a kit or something?

Also, anyone with pics of their pin-on WS6's hoods post 'em up please.

John

Do you want a full pin on hood, or just 2 hood pins up front? With just the 2 pins up front you could keep the hood supports, with a pin on hood it is strictly that and the hood supports would have to go.
Do a search, there is a thread around on how to install hood pins with pics to give you an idea.

that pic was taken before we switched from the "hair pins" to the torsion pins.
