Hello all! I'm wanting to put a decal on my hood and was wondering if the rubber windshield catches are able to be removed completely to be able to place the vinyl underneath it. I tried to search online and couldn't find anything on it. Thanks in advance.

I believe they are bolted to the hood, removing them would leave holes.

I'm assuming you're going to put them back after the decal goes on? Those are also your windshield washer nozzles. They're fairly easy to unbolt after you remove the hood insulation board on the underside of the hood.

Yes, I plan to first lay the vinyl, then cut it to fit the holes and reinstall the catches that way it'll look more lined up. Thanks for the videos!
