Is it hard to install a Carbon Fiber hood?

I've never done anything with my Hood. I was wonderign if anyone has experience with putting on a carbon fiber Hood.

I just ordered mine off the GB here and am wondering if I can do it myself. I am mechanically inlclined but no where near a mechanic.

Thanks for any help.

4 bolts in obvious locations - the help of 2 friends to hold the Hood as you use your 10MM socket wrench is also helpful rice
(sometimes aftermarket Hood manufactures also use 11MM or 12MM bolts)

awesome Isaac, thanks alot. I saw a Hood adjustment in the installs section but it didn't really specify the install of a new Carbon Fiber Hood.

Can't wait to get it in. thumbsup

installing the Hood is easy as hell, hoodpins are a bit tricky
