Super snake hood

Hey guys I could use some help. I am adding a super snake hood and I wanted to open the vents but the extended metal that I got was way to big. So I am looking for some smaller wire to use. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you,David

Can't see buying an aftermarket hood, except in the case of the blower not fitting under a stock one.......................but that's just me.

Unubit,I was in Bowling Green this weekend at the drag races. I got mine fine tuned by VMP and it did well I my opinion. It made 706. Something and 734. something torque. I am done with mods on it. Now I just want to enjoy Ruby One.

That's the direction I really want to go as well. I would love to finish the mods and take it to Justin and let those guys do my tune. Of course he has the same car as mine, unless he sold it (it was for sale) except his car had factory white stripes and he had the silver painted on. His is also making 816 hp. Lol

I caught them at the event in Bowling Green. It was a fun ride to and from. Just had to do it a little faster than I wanted. Guy that came with me had to be back in Cincy by 6.
I am working on getting the shocks right on the car and then I am finished with it. Just going to enjoy the beast.

Looks good...... Do future plans call for SS striping ??
In the 1st pic, it looks like the paint match is off, in the other 3 it looks fine.
The letters on the hood are not my cup of tea..............but then again, it's not my car.
The way this thread started, I was expecting the vent mesh holes to be smaller.

Super snake hood

The color match is next to impossible but I am satisfied with how it turned out. The Ruby Red color reflects differently. The spoiler on the trunk looks off from the body at times. It all has to do with the way it is reflected. This is the third time I had the hood painted. I did not want them to blend. This way I can replace the factory hood and it will still match.
I ordered the car with stripe delete cause to me the color is sooo pretty I did not feel it was necessary.
The wire mesh was what we thought looked the best for the size of the opening. We had larger but you only have one diamond showing. Everything else looked too small.

Super snake hood

The KR Shelby had lettering on the hood that I thought made the car standout.

I love it! I would love to have the SS hood with my silver stripes. Looks great my brother. I'm glad you finally got it matched up. I know you had a time with it before. Blending would be great if you never wanted to put the stock one back on.
