Hello Frank!

It is possible:

You need to drill the center front of the engine cover. Two holes, one for the screw, and one for the alignment axe (those are on the leaper), so you have to get the leaper first to measure and drill accordingly.
Then, you simply insert the leaper (remove the nylon nut first, and with the bonnet open, tighten it on the inner side of bonnet to the leaper, and make sure you have the adhesive cover removed).

I would put some silicone in the holes drilled right before inserting the leaper, to make sure the metal is protected from moisture.

Kindly get back to me if further assistance is needed, so we proceed accordingly.

Regards,
Billy

Hello Billy, ok so I have to drill. But then, what is the exact position on the center front of the engine cover?

Expert:  Billy replied 3 years ago.
Hello,

You need to get back from the front part, the length of the cat, and then 2 inches.
You'll need to get the center (easy when you measure from side to side and then mark using a marker, do this a couple of times, to be sure).

Regards,
Billy
