XR7-G Hood-locking Pin
     This is a closeup of the only hood pin that is correct and original for an XR7-G.  The small balls are spring loaded to snap into place as the pin is pushed through the hole in the stud.  The cable attachment ring flops back and forth freely.  Notice the hexagonal crimp securing the original cable to the ring. 
     This is a view looking at the underside of the hood on the driverís side showing attachment of the cable.  The owner has replaced the original pop rivet with a self tapping screw during restoration.  Many of the cables have been attached in various places by owners and repair shops over the years but when an original low mileage car is examined this is the location typically found.
