Bonnet hinge pins

I made the hood hinge pins. 7/32″ music wire was the closest I could find to the original hinge pins which were not designed to be removable. The best way to bend it was to heat it to near cherry and put light force on it. The stuff is hard as rocks though, and I broke five drill bits trying to drill the holes for the pins. That was even after annealing the metal which I probably did wrong. I also trimmed on of the inner foot-well panels to improve the fit with the cowl firewall.
