No doubt it'll look good. Are you planning on finishing it off with atleast a '99 Cobra front bumper?

I haven't decided whether or not I'll change out the front bumper.I'm going to have a supercharger installed soon.Just kinda doing things as I can afford them.The worthwhile improvements aren't cheap.

Here's an update:
The body shop called,asked if I could stop down.They were concerned about fitment.I went down and checked it out.Looks sweet,just a little stubborn to get the latch to close-takes a little effort.Its all good,I told em' go ahead and paint it.The seam is perfect around the fenders.I'll check out the latch myself, but I think its fine.Hell,thats why I bought the hood made by Ford,I wanted a good fit.Anyway,Thursday or Friday and she'll be back on the road.I think I'm gonna like the new look!

Consider hood pins. Just a warning.

If I pin it,I hope there are some availible that are not real obvious.The one thing that kind of surprised me is it has no insulation on the underside.I'm wondering if I can insulate it myself,or if it is even needed.

Insulation isn't required....alot of ppl actually pull the insulation off the hood...

it doesnt do alot of anything, i think it tries to deaden the sound to but who cares, when i got my new hood installed I never bothered to put the insulation on it, no problems

my hood isnt insulated either, and they have a matt for it, its not needed if they finished the underside and it looks good just leave it as it, will look better anyway.
