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 set of bright Chrome Hood Pins from AmericanMuscle. These chrome hood pins look great on all year and models of mustang.

Quality Construction. These weather-resistant hood pins are finished in chrome, 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 Chrome 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.

Do you sell replacement pins for this feature? Over time, the pins have become loose and sometimes detach at higher speeds. Tonight, one of the cables came loose and the pin flew out of it.

  • As the description says, this is only a appearance kit. No pins actually go through the hood to attach it. It only sticks to the top of your hood.

    Looks good, but will rust

    Installation - The installation was easy, but you will have to drill into the under part of your hood to attach the cable underneath. This was a surprise to me so I thought I would give the warning. Besides that, the installation was real easy. Looks - The hood pins look great and serve their "appearance" purpose. The only negative is that the cable is starting to rust, even though they do have a rubber casing, water can still get in and rust the cable. I have had the pins less than 3 months, and i'm already having to think about replacing the cables.

    These look awesome! Quick and easy install. Take your time measuring where to place them, once they're on, they're on! After 3 months though, the wire leashes became a little rusty.

    Looks nice

    Nice upgrade for not alota money.. I put them on my 06 GT Mustang, to me the best position for them is if u measure from the back of the hood and put the center of the pin at 46"...then measure from the side of the hood and the center of the pin is at 12" it looks great there..trust me...just my 2 cents

    Nice

    These hoodpins look great but without the hassle of the real thing. Just attach them to the top of your hood (and the lanyards to the bottom of the hood) and you're done! They gave my car the retro look I was after with no change to how the stock hood opens and closes.

    Awesome!

    These are the best choice if you do not want to drill holes in your factory hood. I chose the very high polish chrome Billet and they really put the finishing touch next to the shiny silver stripes on my black hood. They really make the car look tough. Installation was easy once you decide on your preferred location.

    Race finish

    Love the look of these and finish the hood off nicely. I only rated these with 3 stars because both pins are identical so it is hard to get the mirror image on both sides of the hood i.e. there is no left or right. If they came with left and right then I would give them 5 stars.

    Awsome look for my 11 Mustang

    The hood pins have a great appearance and weight to them. I could tell right away that they are a high quality item. Some people said it was a 15 min install. It took close to 45 min to really measure carefully and to decide where to drill the hole under the hood to secure the cable eye end. Maybe I'm just picky but the time is well spent to get the look just right. I used previous advice and went with the 46inches from top of hood and 12 inches from the edge. I'm a Canadian customer and I was surprised to receive the item in a matter of days and not 4-6 weeks.
