Default Seibon CW II hood on 06 WRX

So I just got my Seibon CW II hood in last night and I installed it. Only took my about 30 minutes and it was a piece of cake. VERY easy install. Came out nice! No shipping damage or anything, so I was happy. But I had a question. I installed the winshield washer spray nozzles and they won't fit all the way in. Does anyone know the best way to make bigger holes without damaging the hood? Any help would be appreciated.... Oh yeah, and lemme know what you think about the hood






Here's a pic of the windshield washer nozzle that won't quite go in all the way...

wow, that is a BIG FREAKING SCOOP. put masking tape on the hood and drill slowly with a drill bit. let the bit do the work, don't push on it. or...you could get some LED squirter lights that are universal fit...those would be the pimpness...hahaha

Yeah, I thought about that. But I just don't know how it'd look. Could anyone photoshop it? Or does anyone have one?

Just mask everything off, and paint it flat black.

As for the holes, use a marking spray, and trim with a dremel where it marks. Eventually it'll drop in.

+1 for painting the mesh black.

That actually looks way better than I imagined.

yeah, the more I look at it the more I think I should paint the mash black. Think I'll be doing that this weekend I'll be sure to post pics. I wanted to black out the headlights also...

If you drill into the carbon fiber use soap and water while drilling to lessen the chances of your hood cracking...

I had the same problem with the nozzles fitting on my VIS hood. I honestly couldn't be bothered, and never installed them.

I like the hood by itself...by on the two cars I've seen it on I think the scoop should be smaller, and the side vents bigger. The proportions just look a little off. Too bad, because I wanted this hood for my 06. Hope you like it, I've always been a CF fan.

Remove the mesh all in itself. I had a VIS hood and that was the first thing I did.
