Default hood

well i have been looking for a cobra r hood for a little while now. and my brother-in-law called me and told me he knew a guy that had one. so he sent me a pic and a phone number, so i called the guy up and i picked it for $100. all i have to do is paint it white and put it on.

Read what he typed lol

Does look great, those hoods are probably the best style for an sn95, they follow the curves very well

the guy payed $100 for the hood and then sold his mustang and never installed it. he has had the hood for a while. the guy he bought it from cut about a foot section out of the back on the bottom so his blower would fit under it. structurally its still sound. it does have a couple of deep scratches but its fiberglass so its no big deal to fix. i am going to paint my car around tax time so it will stay black until then. but i figured for $100 i couldnt go wrong.

Heck, I would just leave it. Black on white looks mean.

Naw dude it's ricy looking when your start mismatching colors. Paint to match. Something worth doing is worth doing right.
