i just purchased a sho fast cowl hood, because it would look nice and it was about the same price as buying a stock hood. anyways just out of curiosity, i dont have it on hand, were they made of metal or fiberglass, and how much modding would be required to make this work on my car, i.e. do i have to swithch the skelatal skin under the stock hood onto the cowl?

IIRC they were carbon fiber/fiber glass, so make sure you install hood pins when you install the hood. No other modification is needed. Some people I know got rid of the hood struts and used a prop rod.

I didnt know SHOFast sold hoods. I thought that they had closed up. Any more information?

It might be fiberglass only. If so you might now need pins.

[attachmentid=21947]it was an ebay purchase, i got it for a great deal, but i really do not want hood pins, and yes i thought about it before hand, but at the price i know i could resell it in the event that i decided not to use it.

i was thinking of taking the ford spear out of the oval of the front bumper and do this method to avoid having the pins go through the hood.

what do you think? one way or the other i will mount this hood without pins, but i still want to secure it somehow. i just value the thoughts and opiniions on this board above most others.

Since it is the fiberglass hood I think you will be okay without hood pins.

It might actually be a Cincy Cowl hood.

That's the same hood that's on Willie Orput's car and Bryan King's old car I believe. IIRC it was from CincySHO.

since it is now conformed, for the most part, to be fiberglass, do i have to worry alot about crackin, shattering etc.. like hear all the time from people who purchase fiberglass body kits, or is the fiberglass hood usually thick enough to with stand this issue, sorry im dragging this out, but i have a lot of questions and who better to turn to about a taurus matter than the TCCA!
