"just outside the black "nubs" that
are pictured here..." Which nub is it?

I had mine installed. They remove the 'blue' nubs. They're the rubber stops. No pics yet tho...

^ you don't need them, but they're highly recommended...especialy if you drive a lot at a high rate of speed, like on the freeway

Look on your stock Hood, it should have some rubber stoppers on it too right near the edges. where those rubber stoppers contact the radiator support is where you should drill. I had a hell of a time doing this, make sure you have a dremel tool with a nice cutting blade, cutting/drill bit, wrenches, and screwdriver. just be patient tand measure twice!!!
