2 Or 3 Inch Cowl
 
I been looking for a hood and I decided on a cowl. I just cant find many pics of them.

I know I dont want a Cervinis, but I was looking at something smooth like the Trufiber. I just cant really get a good feel for the size that I want. So I looking for any pics that anyone has. I have searched around and I need some help finding pics espcially pics with sizes

psh why not a 5 inch?!
blind spots? what flippin blind spots?!

Unless you're gonna race the car, I strongly suggest no more than 3" for maneuvering purposes on a DD...
It usually comes with 2,5" or 4" by most brands though, so you're most likely gonna get the 2,5 one.

Got my Steeda street 2.5" cowl last summer. Can be used without hood-pins, but I bought it used so it already had the pins mounted. Has washer nozel provisions also. Here are a few various pics to help you out..

Love the hood; no regrets; glad I didnt go any taller for DD.

That looks sweet. I guess i going with the 2 inch from trufiber. Cruzin Concepts have them on sale.

Anybody have any dealings with them. I know they used to advertise here.

Not usually a fan of cowl hoods but drfister gotta admit I really like your setup Nice mods.

I've heard too many nightmares about Cruzin concept, I wouldn't deal with them.

Trufiber makes a 3".

Agree. Nice color combo, nice stance...nice stang!
I would go 2" on the cowl myself, they gotta limit visibility in the bigger sizes.

MadStang40 02-15-2012 06:17 PM

2.5" here. I'm 5'8" so visibility was a bit of an issue. But I got used to it. If you're really tall, I don't see why a 4" would be a problem, but it's all about personal taste. I personally wouldn't go taller than 3", but that's just me.

The 4" is tall and will limit visibility but remember the driver power seat goes up and down..... I used to sit on the lowest setting and I moved it up just a tad and I can see fine over the 4". Regardless of which size you go with, cowl FTW!

Are you local, or, was just attending the show? I live around the corner from there. Nice ride.

MustangFirstCar 02-15-2012 08:21 PM

Either the 2 or 2.5, depending on which company you go with.
