Check American muscle? Do the 11-12 year ones fit?

Any hood pin kit you buy would work for your 2013. Is there a particular style you like?

I installed some shelby hood pins on a 06 mustang one time but the hoods on the 06 are more flat. I just wanted to see if anyone got them done so i could have a good confident install on my 13.

I did some searching and couldn't find anything. All I can find is the 'hood pin appearance kit'.

This might be a little overkill but this is what I did to my old hood on my '11. http://www.mustangevolution.com/foru....php?p=1052336 Take a gander.

I have a fiberglass hood. I'd be scared that I'd destroy it lol.
Those flush mounts look amazing. Nice job.

Thanks. I had spent the better part of the day and most of the night installing them. I probably measured my cuts 50 different ways before I actually cut into it.

I've got a CF cowl hood now and soon I'll be doing the install again.

Nice. I'll pick some up and swing over to Texas and pay you to do another install. Haha

I've often thought the same thing. If by chance I'm ever in Texas and so happen to have my mustang with me and by chance have in my possession said hood pin kit, then I'll look you up primes.

There's no easy install if you put them on corners of the hood. You gotta pull the front end apart. If you install them more towards the middle, you can use the holes in the radiator brackets. That would be really easy but IMO the hard way looks best.
