Hey, Justin with AmericanMuscle.com, here with a way to add some of that aggressive Shelby styling to the front end of your late model Mustang, without having to drill into or permanently modify your ride. I’m referring to this hood pin appearance kit from Modern Billet™, available for all 94 and newer Mustangs. Modern Billet™ is a company that specializes in designing and producing a wide variety of interior and exterior styling accessories for your Mustang using nothing but 100% quality Billet aluminum. I want to address the obvious thing here, these are not functional hood pins, I know this is going to bother some people but the fact is, this an easy and relatively inexpensive way to get the exact same look, without having to drill into your hood. As for the kit itself, you can see it is actually pretty simple, it does include the baseplate with simulated hardware and pin, attached to this stainless steel lanyard which is about a foot or a foot and a half or so in length. As for these baseplate options you do have a couple of different choices, we have a bright chrome option installed on our 98 GT behind me, or also a semi gloss black powder coat. Again, one of the biggest selling points if you will with this kit is that there’s absolutely no need to drill, instead the baseplates attach to the hood using the preinstalled 3M tape on the back, while the other end of the lanyard usually installs in a hole on the back side of the hood around the hood liner area. Because of this the install couldn’t be any easier, simply clean the area first using the supplied alcohol prep pad, measure exactly where you want that base plate to go, remove the protective backing on the 3M tape, and adhere to your ride carefully. Because this is pretty easy, we’re going to call it 15 minutes from start to finish. So if you want to give your Mustang a taste of that iconic GT500 styling, without drilling into your hood, then you have to check out one of these hood pin appearance kits available in chrome or black, right here at AmericanMuscle.com



Classic Styling. Give your Mustang the Classic Styling of yesterday with a modern twist. These Black Finished Hood Pins from AmericanMuscle look great on all year and models of mustang.

Quality Construction. These weather-resistant hood pins are finished in black, measure 2.5" wide and feature lanyards and pins crafted from durable stainless steel to maintain a long high-quality appearance.

Easy Install - No Drilling! The Mustang Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit is simple to install with 3M bonding tape already applied to the back. Just clean, peel, and stick, its that easy and best of all there is no drilling into the top of your hood. Just attach the supplied pins and lanyards and your ready to go.

What material are the leads made of? I'd like to use this kit to determine if I like the look of hood pins before installing a functional kit. What material are the leads made of? Do they wear through the clear coat/paint after a while? Trying to determine if I need to order a clear bra to protect my new paint.

Bryce

  • The lanyards and pins are made of durable stainless steel and they shouldn't wear through your car's clear coat or paint!

Removal? How difficult is it to remove the hood pins? The 3M material doesn't harm the pain or anything, right?

Opinion: Chrome vs. black hood pins for a white mustang? What do you think looks better on a white mustang, chrome or black hood pins?

TBird13x

  • If you have chrome rims and want to match, go with chrome, but if you don't it might look tacky adding chrome if that's the only shiny metal on your car. As your question started with however, only an opinion.

Functional? Are these hood pins functional?

    Hold like crazy

    After looking at every picture on reviews where placement was concerned, laid these on the hood until I liked what I saw. I must've measured every which way possible until I was convinced I had them centered properly. Then, use blue painters tape as a guideline to do two sides of the pins. When you peel off the back of the 3M tape, make sure you know right where it's going. It's on there forever once it makes contact. Keep a pin into the mounting bracket so that the hole is lined up where you want it. (don't eyeball it in other words) I wanted mine going east to west, but that's just personal taste. Then, (and this took the longest in installation) I wanted to mount the cables under the hood, so used two self starting screws with hex head and screwed them into the top of the radiator cover. Trick here is getting the cables the same length, and having the right amount visible wrapping around the hood. This is tricky because you have to close the hood to see where you're at. I've seen some cables from hood pins on cars that was uneven, or twisted up in the wrong way and it looks bad. Maybe I'm just anal, but if you take your time these things look great and add that muscle touch, even though they're just cosmetic. My '69 Mach had the real deal, and this is as close as you can get without drilling real holes in your hood. I love 'em.

    Great Add-on! Simple, fast, and easy

    This hood pin appearance kit was a breeze to install. I used the bolts from my aftermarket grill to secure the wire and it looks great! It was a pain to make sure they're even on both sides but it didn't take that long. Good quality and the wires were coated with plastic so they won't scratch your hood over time. Great deal!

      Luba, these hood pins and loops should be installing without any problems as they have on numerous other Mustangs of your year and model. Please give our customer service a call when you have a moment so we can help you further with the install.

    Very cool and easy appearance mod!

    I installed this set on my GT because I love the look of the old muscle cars with the pins and lanyards. This set looks just like the ones from the old days! The instructions tell you to make sure the plates are placed exactly the same on both sides as far as how the pins go in but I rotated mine a bit to give it a more "purpose built" look, just like the old days! Awesome looking mod for sure.

    Ehh they were ok

    I was actually excited about these things.when ingot these they were a little scratched on the black part, I also didn't expect them to be so large but I guess infant really complain about it. Ijust flipped the things back so the scratches were toward the window and it looks good i guess, I expected more for the money though..

    This black hood pin kit looks great on my Mustang. They look pretty real too! The only complaint that I have is that the black finish is pretty thin and scratches off easily around the pin holder section. Other than that, I am satisfied.

    Review from Modern Billet Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit (94-04 All)

    Would Never Know They Are Not Real

    These look almost as real as the ones found on the GT500KR. Best part is you do not have to drill through the hood, and the lanyards are coated in plastic so they don't scratch your hood. Took a little longer than the estimated installation time on AM's site because on my 04 I did not have any screws on the underside of my hood to put the other end of the lanyard through and had to drill two. Either way taking my time and lining up everything perfectly couldn't have taken more than 30 minutes

    Great addition to the hood

    The installation was quick and easy and they look fantastic. I was worried the lanyards would fall off somehow, but after getting my 2010 gt up to 100 mph and going through a car wash they did not, nor did they come close to doing so. I would highly recommend these to anyone who is thinking about buying them. At first i thought 60 bucks was a little pricey but it was definitely worth it.
