Default Any one know how to install this??

Just bought this bad boy and the guy said all I have to do is fasten it to the hood but the holes on the deflector don't match up to the ones on the hood and the screws aren't anywhere near big enough to screw in. I'M NOT WANTING TO DRILL INTO MY HOOD. If you all know how to attach this securely without drilling, please let me know!

This is the hardware it came with:

Yup, line it up, center it drill it in! You may want to use double sided tape to hold it on so you can center it properly, then drill it in

It screws in underneath the hood, you can use self tapping screws. I f you don't want to drill use veldro, or thick two sided tape.

if you want. Screw the screws in. take em out, Shoot the holes with clear coat. and then put screws back in, but that isnt neccisary.

Does anyone know if the front of my hood would rust out from vibrations from the deflector?
