I have the little gasket adhered on the underside of the chrome...the wire mess was overlapping the gasket so I trimmed mesh screent back to sit inside the gasket...the black plate sits on top of hood metal to metal. Then the mesh and chrome pieces. The drain holes are both on the left side of these chrome ornaments, do I have 2 left hand pieces? My aftermarket hood has a few areas for the water to go...on right side (passenger) the drain hole is in a location, I cannot put the drain plug in, no room.
The water is to go into drain hole and run down underside of hood in trough and drop out near radiator I assume.
My gasket is on the outside of my nuts, I thinkit needs to be on the inside to not allow water to get to them, or on both sides, etc..
I have a new underhood pad, yet cannot install until this is resolved.
