Making a hole for the Shaker is first. With the underhood blanket removed, masking tape is laid on the hood around the cutout area to protect the paint. The supplied paper template, which precisely locates and outlines the intended cut-out, is then accurately taped in place. A razor or X-Acto blade is used to cut through both the template and masking tape to delineate the cut-out as shown here. After drilling a pilot hole, a jigsaw with metal-cutting blade is then used to cut away the Shaker opening. The kit includes trim rings that will provide a finished appearance to this opening.
