Before marrying the nose piece to the rad support hoop a few details need to be done. The rivet holes for the Dzus springs need to be recessed. The center hole needs a bevel. The nose holes need to be located, drilled, and recessed so the Dzus buttons do not rub the underside of the hood. I squirted a little rust preventative primer on the tabs before attaching the springs. Everything fit up perfectly. The hood will lay on top of these fasteners, covering them up. A piece of welting will cover the mounting flange. Holes will be punched in the welting to access the Dzus buttons with the hood removed.
