Why dont they use factory holes?

I got the scoop installed. What a pain in the ass! I am really leaning towards Red everything, except the stripes. Rollbar next.

I like the black on red. But, it's your car, do what makes you happy.(don't paint the rollbar red,please).

is the scoop a factory ford part? If not i see what you mean the factory ford scoop has the same dimensions that fit right into the holes pre set under your 69 hood.

If I remember correctly, the front two holes did line up on mine. However, I did have to drill new rear holes. For the side holes, I only drilled holes through the top, I did not drill through the bottom of the hood, so the inner bolts are not bolted down. I've had no problems with this arrangement over the past 5 years.
