Actually, the indexing pins aren't the problem. The problem is with the alignment of the hood ornament to the base plate. Those keys were actually within the part itself so quite close together and a small misalignment there results in a pretty big misalignment at the tips of the scallops. So I need to move my alignment details further apart... at least the ones I use between the part and the plate.

The plate to plate pins are fine.
