Insert is bolted on using M6 fasteners.... The adhesive between the insert and hood is used to eliminate any potential vibrations or "canning" effect.

No measuring tape is really required, template is your guide, and the trim tolerance is very forgiving since the cut is not visible.

A dremel tool will do wonders and easy to use. A Zippy cutter and jigsaw will also work.

What kind of cutting wheel do you use with the Dremel? I am afraid of it jumping out of the cut and scratching my hood through the tape.
What's a zippy cutter?

On a side note what is the status on shipped orders?

I used an air cut-off tool w/3in. wheel to do my fender vents. I've used a dremel on a computer case,it would take too long 'for me' to do the hood.Maybe with aluminum it wouldn't cut so slow. 1/8 tolerance sounds like plenty,all that said I'd still be nervous as hell to make that first cut..lol. I think a zippy tool is like a bigger and vertical dremel that cuts like a router. *What is the turn around on an order for this right now?

I'd like to see more pics of the hood insert installed on customers cars. Extremely hard to gauge appearance on two shots and where the hood has been modified for side ports as well. It looks like good craftsmanship on the center hood insert.
