On the little spring clips that hold the chrome on the front edge of the hood, do the little grasshopper leg springs point towards the ground or do they point up when the chrome is installed? Thanks - Ross

The clips go in with the legs on the left pointing down as you are looking at the back. You want the clip to bind as you tighten and the leg is to help hold it in place for install and so you can break the nuts loose later if needed. This is how I installed my clips on the rockers, hood and honeycomb of my 70 Mach.

My painter gave me a roll of body caulk. It is used for emblems and stuff like that. I put a piece of that stuff on each one of the clips, and they hold very tight now.....
