I am about to tackle fitting a new hood supplied by Don Trimming.
They supplied small black nails to tack the hood to the rear wooden rail.
Has anyone used another method to attach the hood to the rear of the car?

Wash your hands often if it's cloth.

Thanks Guys. Doug Pelton (FTFU) also suggested the push buttons.

Sorry, not the push buttons. Doug recommended brass screws with cup washers.
