New hood

Got my 2k cobra R hood and absolutely love it. It adds so much more to the front end and I get about a billion more compliments from the older crowd not to mention the younger crowd.

Thanks man. Is that plasti dip on your rear bumper? My rear has the strip between the lights on the trunk lid painted but it's gloss. I have a buddy that loves plasti dippin and I wasn't sure if it was only flat or if you can get it glossy

Haha... No plasti-dip belongs on tools not cars. It's a magnetic blackout panel is all

The fit was perfect. It had no problems right out of the box. And very very little prep work required. I went with the hood pins cause the hood is so light and the stock hood bounced all over the place at high speeds, I could only imagine it flying off.

No wires right now. The kit came with some that we're coiled up in the box and it looked ridiculous on it lol. I bought it from latemodelrestoration.com I liked the fact that it had a larger cowl then even the cervinis. The pics don't do it justice for the cowl. It's alot bigger then what it looks like in the pics. I think it was a 2.75 inch cowl on it. The only thing I can complain about it is that it doesn't have any form of heat extraction. On the cervinis the back has vents, but it would be very simply to actually cut some vents into the rear

The body shop that painted it said it was the strongest fiberglass good they had ever seen too

I originally was gonna get the 95 cobra r good until I found this one. The reason is cause the fact that the cowl doesn't look that big but I pulled the trigger on the purchase anyways and don't look back at all

The top middle was originally designed with heat extractors for the 5.4 that was in the cobra r. If you have the extractors opened on the 2v you'll short out the coils. If you can make a cover for the coils then you can open em up and let it breath.

I just want one without that mess up there

Thats the only thing that keeps me from pulling the trigger on that hood....I think the Mach hood would look good without a hole in it....the cowl hoods over 2" just r too square....I like the tall rounder ones better...
