Holy thread resurrection, Batman!

No flutter here, stock hood and fiberglass cowl. A hood flying up on my windshield is the least of my worries.

Default Hood lifting at speed

SpectorV on another forum said he had a friend that had the outer panel seperate from the lower and crash the windshield. The latch and hinges are attached to the bottom side. hood pins are sounding better all the time.

Default hood lifts at speed

From other forums I have heard of outer hood seperating and crashing windshield and a recall on earlier mustangs for hood seperation problems. I am trying to find out if the only thing that holds the OEM aluminum hoods together is the fold on the edge. I have seen steel hoods spot welded and folded on the edge and some with glue or sealer on middle bracing. I don't have access to my original hood to compare with what I have now from collision repair.

Mine flutters and it drives me nuts. Might go with a set of hood pins for peace of mind but really don't want to

When I'm crossing the traps at the drag strip, my hood floats so high I'm scared it's going to rip off. I'd say an inch is entirely possible, and it definitely puckers my butt every time. On a positive note, 200ish passes at the strip haven't ripped it off yet.

This is my buddy's 2011 GT500 at the strip. Check out the hood after he crosses the traps. Scary as hell.

Recessed set? Or regular. I've got the recessed type and the tiny rod that is used to latch to the pins has got me worried to push a top-speed run.

That's a very common issue with the S197 body styles. Speaking from experience the best solution is to add in a set of quality hood latch pins. The 2011+ body style is a little bit more aerodynamic. They don't call the '09's- a brick for nothing!

If you really want to go at it then ditch the OEM front bumper for a Roush style and ditch the rear spoiler for a Roush or Steeda style spoiler and you'll feel the car sucking downward the faster you go.

My last mustang had this issue when going over 100, its because air gets caught under the front lip of the hood that overhangs over the headlights. Try adjusting the rubber hood pieces and if that doesn't work then get hood pins, or just live with it or just drive slower.

Wow, I'm surprised people are still having this issue. A speeds over 100 mph, I noticed my hood starting to shake but never lifting.
I cannot tell if it actually does, but it never will come up an inch.

The OP has something wrong with his. And where is the lift? On the front? Or at the back of the hood just in front of the windshield?
If the front, he needs to fix his latch. That or as already said, adjust the rubber stops.
If the back of the hood, his hinges need adjusting. Or replacing if they are worn out/broken

The front and rear of the hood stays put because of the latch and hinges. The lift occurs in the middle of left side of the hood don't know about the right. What I have noticed is the inner and outer panels of my hood slide on each other. With the hood open the corners will rack 6'' or more if you support it on either corner. Is that normal? My experience with hoods is they are crimped and spot welded around the edge and bonded on center braces making a solid hood. Are factory hoods welded or bonded? Without the inner and outer joined its a floppy mess. I did not have an issue with orignal hood but Progressive installed an aftermarket replacement.

My hood bounces pretty badly around 130mph. It's unsettling for sure. I fully intend to pick up these hood pins the next time I'm at the shop:

I would have the body shop that did the work look at that hood. Sounds like a bad hood..............

I took the stang back to Progressive consierge center and explained problem. They didn't quire understand untill we walked out and opened the hood. Their opinion was " That's just not right " and gave me a Mazda 6 rental and are taking it back to the shop. Here's hoping!

Default lifting or dancing hoods

well all they did was raise the rubber snubbers up till the hood was virtually uncloseable. I had to lower them back down so I would not damage the hood slamming repeatably to get it to latch and used paper method to balance them. It does not rise quite like it did at speed but now dances or flutters side to side. I still believe the problem is inner and outer panels not bonded together is the problem. Are factory hoods bonded or spot welded together?

+1 for hood pins.
Even with my hood pins, when I hit about 150 I can hear them squeaking from all the wind. Will definitely fix your problem though.
