Thanks Brian, but I have the trim, and in good shape, but the plain steel mount insert is shot. So rusty it's expanded tight into the stainless. I have it in the E-tank so I can remove the mount steel without damaging the stainless. I have some stainless steel 10/24 thread carriage bolts & stainless nylock nuts coming. All I have to do is remove the OE steel mount strips, then grind down the rounded carriage head flat, then grind flats opposite on the head edge down to .438" or so, then they will slide into the stainless trim to fasten it to the hood. The carriage heads measure .454", so I can make a decent flat edge on both sides to grip the stainless trim.
I think I get what you're talking about. Pics would be good, when you do it.
