It's been 35 years since I've had a car with hood pins. 1970 Mach 1 with a 351 Windsor
Has anyone had the cable scratch the hood paint? If they're fake I'd delete em. If they are real why not just go without cables and carry some extras incase punks snitched.
Question: would those fake hood pins pass a tech-inspection at a drag strip?
Hair dryer will take that GT 300 stripe off. No such variant existed.
It sure is pretty, one day I'll finish my 2013 and get another 05-09 just because!
I'm at 140k miles, and haven't done anything besides regular fluid changes and 1 set of brake pads. I did do a precautionary plug change last year. Car is not stock and I beat on it occasionally. I don't think you have anything to worry about regarding longevity.
Have the dealer change the plugs - I hear that can be a real PITA with a risk of breaking them off in the head.
