    Hey guys got a couple of questions today , i put some stickers on the taco yesterday one of them i put on the front windshield so i got up on the hood by the windshield to make sure it stuck good and was straight i have done this before on other trucks with no problems but i was squatting down trying to be easy and in the process the plastic strip by the windshield is coming loose so how to you make it stay? Also i have three small dents in the hood now by the ridge near the windshield look like hail dents but from this as well what to do with those they are right on the ridge where it curls down near the ws. the strip is really bugging me because it makes noise in the wind. help please. and thanks.

    Are you talking about the plastic cowl piece in between the hood and the windshield?(first pic). Does yours have plastic push pins in the corners to hold it down? i just noticed mine were gone too.(second pic). There should be, if not then you can probably get some at your local auto store. Or is the whole thing flopping around?

    I'm sorry but it's really hard to read your first post. Do you have a pic of the strip that you are talking about? Is it the same one in the pics?
