Trail Boss- Tilt Hood Hinge System

I am putting a one piece fiberglass front end on my CJ and was wondering if anyone has ever installed one before. The kit from Trail Boss has horrible directions and none of the parts are labeled.

I installed the radiator mount and was wondering if anyone has any pointers or pics of clips that have been installed.

Thanks...

Trail Boss is the company that makes the hinge/mounting kit that he has...he had pics in the thread on quadratec's forum where I referred him to here and JU from, not sure why he didn't post them here...
