The Goddess of Speed was a must have for my Cruiser. The kit came with the hood ornament, a chrome strip for the center of the hood and the mounting screws.
The first thing to do is drill two holes near the front of your hood. I know, take a deep breath and go for it! The instructions include a pattern for the location of the holes. Just tape it to your hood, mark the centers with a sharp center punch, and drill. Drill the back hole through both the hood and the bracket inside the hood.
You will need to open up the back hole inside the hood to accept the nut. Once I got all the holes drilled I painted them with some primer using a small paint brush just along the edges.
We aligned the chrome on our marks and peeled the tape off as we moved up the hood. Press the strip down good so that it permanently sticks to the hood.
Well not quite. Just like the spears I didn't care for the flat mirror like appearance of the chrome strip. I ordered some more chrome strips like were used for the 1940's Chrome Fender Kit. Enough to reach from the back of the Goddess to the back of the hood.
