Hood latch

I have a 1939 ford and I bought a Autoloc BCTR latch. Cant find any instructions on how to mount it and autoloc doesnt have it either. Has anyone used this latch, or should I trash it and find another. Photos would be helpful. Looks like it willl get recessed at both ends on this ford, and a lot of work.

I Googled this, here's a few pics: http://www.kmwperformance.com/product/BCTR


Which one go you have? It looks to be fairly straight forward, line things up, you may have to drill some holes but if you have all the old latches this shouldn't be terribly hard to do. Give it a shot, stuff can always be fixed if you mess it up a bit. And if all else fails, here's their contact info, make sure you give them a parts number and ask if they will email instructions. http://www.autoloc.com/contact/
