Assuming that Ford refuses to give me a new hood for free, I think I'll be looking at aftermarket options.

Anything out there that more or less follows the stock appearance in either fiberglass or CF? Seems like a ram air hood setup might be a little bling-y for a V6.

GT500 takeoffs are around $800 on eBay. But you will get the same paint...

bubbling paint issue? don't get the Ford aluminum hood then. the Cervinis hoods are made of another material that won't have that issue.

Yep. Same here. I have 2 spots on my hood.

I was also looking for a GT/GT500 take off in ingot silver, but it seems like I'm the only person in the United States with an ingot silver Mustang.

So, I just have a guy that's going to repair mine for $180 next week.

I really hope Ford get's absolutely hammered in that class action lawsuit. It's such BS they won't own up to the issue and fix it. Repainting an iron contaminated aluminium hood is the most useless/fruitless repair possible.

Yeah, repaint is just a band-aid as the contamination is still there. New Ford hood might be OK, but is a roll of the dice if it will start corrosive in a year or two.

I'd love an OEM-like fiberglass hood...ram-air hoods might be a little overkill for a V6. Any suggestions?

Lol, funny you should mention this listing.

This guy has been such a flake with me for some reason. He had another listing with an ingot silver hood and it was freight shipping. He would not give me a straight answer on a price to get it shipped to me.

I might try him again if I'm unhappy with my paint repair.

Good looking out though, I'll take any help I can get! I appreciate it!

I kind of feel the same way about the overkill part.

I'm a "less is more" kind of guy. I prefer understated things.

Yes, it's been ongoing for a few years now. Covers all 05-14 models. Ford's supplier of the hoods knowingly new of the iron contamination of the aluminium hoods, but in typical Ford style they did nothing to correct it. That's why i'm interested to see how these new F-150's fare. Aluminum is a b**** to paint (coming from the marine industry). It requires a clean freshly prep surface that must be painted very shortly after blasting/sanding and with a good anti-corrosive primer. If either the aluminium is contaminated or the primer fails you will get corrosion which first causes bubbling, then failure. It's basically a paint tumor that spreads quickly.

Had it happen on my Chevy. Started with a bubble, then a 1/2cm flake, and four months later it was a 2'x5" strip along the drivers roof and then down the rear pillar and going down along the rear window. Traded with 98k and let someone else deal with it.

The aluminum-bodied F-150s will either be a stroke of genius or an utter disaster when paint stats flaking off every body panel in a couple of years. Obviously I'm putting my money on the latter, as this is coming from the company that brought you the Pinto with its exploding gas tank.

I just need my car to last until 2017/2018 when I'll upgrade to a hopefully updated GT. I still have my pristine stock v6 hood I could always through back on.

It's Cheaper

Ford will drag their heels on this one. By the time the suit is over, many people will no longer own their Mustangs. You won't get cash but you will be able to get your hood replaced, if you still own your car.

This is just like the Pintos. Ford knew the gas tanks would explode if hit in the rear end. They let it slide as it was cheaper to pay off people that have died by fire or burns, than recall 11.1 million vehicles.

Aluminum body cars require a completely separate shop and tools. That is part of the reason not many shops will mess with them. It has been only high end cars that fool with it. There is no memory in aluminum like there is with steel so most body guys have no clue how to work with it. Painting sound like a B**** to work with as well. Rethink buying a F150. Thinking of dumping my Ford stock soon.

Ford made all aluminum Jaguars for years without incident. I think they have it covered. That said, they dropped the ball on mustang hoods. I think the supplier is to blame...and the bean counters.

Yeah, it's probably down to $ and not wanting to spend any to fix the problem at the source.

I remember that Ford bought the Jaguar and Land Rovers companies but I did not think Ford actually built them in the USA. I do not think Ford guys did the Jaguar body work in their shops either. I have been wrong B4 but ....

First, ford never built the jags, they just had them using similar parts to ford. Second, the problem stems the stamping machines. I'm not sure how you are suppose to stamp out aluminum panels/hoods, but the issue was determined to be caused by steel stamping presses transferring iron deposits onto the aluminum then the hoods not being properly bathed afterwards.

My understanding is that the iron contamination then gets folded into the seam when they attach the hood skin to the structure, thus sealing it in permanently. So, no matter what you do (painting, cleaning, etc.), galvanic corrosion will continue and the problem will come back.

Maybe some production hoods managed to be done with new tooling that didn't leave any iron particles behind, and that's why some people don't have the problem. But it seems like a significant percentage of these hoods eventually start corroding.

EDIT: So in terms of less blingy hoods for the V6, I was thinking heat extractor hoods over the ram air hoods, because it seems fake to put in a ram air hood without actually having a ram air system.

What do folks think of the GT-500 style hoods with functional heat extractor?

My Ford dealer said the same about my '14, a new hood was the only option. They had Ford replace it for free under warranty and prepped the hood in their body shop. I was told by the service manager that they get 3-4 hood replacements a week.

guarantee this is one of those it helps to be on your dealers "Good" list to get wtty items.

Sorry Tym.

I like the style of the 1st link but dislike the CF look as it's kinda blingy .02

I think mine is starting, next time I pick up oil filters I'm going to show mine to my sales person/service dept.

My dealer stripped and repainted the hood. If it holds up fine, if not I'll go back and want a replacement.

If I changed out the OEM hood I'd get the Cervini Cobra R hood.

Yeah, I've had trouble finding good dealers near me. I'm going to try another one that was recommended by a racing shop for the airbag recall, and see what they can do about the hood.

Mud, check the seam inside your trunk lid too. Mine has been going for a bit and is getting worse now, but at least is confined to the inside. Ironically, there do seem to be a couple of pinholes, so Ford might actually fix that one.

Agree that the Cobra R hood looks nice!

whoever gets a new hood is lucky. mines a 14 and they only offered to repaint it, and their body shop SUCKED. they don't have in house so they outsource to a local shop, and it wasn't good. hairline scratches all over etc. I said f it, if that crap happens again, I have warranty until next April, so I'll find another dealer, get it done somewhere else, and if it happens again, I'll buy a new hood.

kinda on topic, I've read a bit about the new F-150 and you need to have separate body tools for the aluminum due to cross contamination. So how many body shops/people are never going to adjust an aluminum hood with the first hammer that comes to hand? I'm guessing this will be like aluminum wires in your house that were a good idea but didn't work in the real world.

I'm guessing this will be like aluminum wires in your house that were a good idea but didn't work in the real world.
Body shops are going to have to adapt. Aluminum is here to stay, at least until carbon fiber becomes cheap enough to be mainstream. Besides all Jaguars and Tesla's even the Silverado is going to have aluminum hoods and fenders next cycle. Ford saved 700 lbs in the F150 and the fuel and hauling advantages can't be made any other way. In case you don't remember steel has corrosion problems too. I'm hoping the Mustang gets a aluminium monocoque:next cycle. it would be a beast.

Between the lawyers, feds and insurance companies the auto makers are in a no win situation. The requirement to remove VOCs caused a lot of manufacturers to repaint vehicles. My 91 F150SC was repainted under warranty. The ban on asbestos has caused my Dodge PU to have brake problems every 30-40k miles. Now I have a small area on my Mustang that I will have to see about getting repaired. Eventually, Ford and all the others will fix the issue, but often it requires rethinking the process. The brake issue forced manufacturers to abandon the mainstay 14" and 15" wheels to have room for much bigger brake discs. This created other issues in ride and handling. If it aint one thing, its another.

What would it cost to have a cervinis hood painted?

I've had the bubbly paint for a while now and need to get it replaced

Depends on paint color. For my Red Candy Metallic color, it's an additional $500.
