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

Good product no complaints
Install was simple, it adds a pretty cool look. Personally I superglued the pins in. I didn’t really trust them not to fall out. I recommend if you want the appearance but don’t wanna drill into your hood!Helpful (0)
i can not tell if the lanyard sits off the hood or is laying on it. Has there been any issues reported from the lanyard rubbing / Dulling the hoods paint ?
The Modern Billet Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit can be installed, so the lanyard does not rest on the hood and risk rubbing the paint.
What is the diameter or hood pin base
The hood plate measures 2.5" in diameter.
What size bolt/screw fit on the predrilled holes in the hood?
While I Know they are purely cosmetic, do the lock pins actually come out from the stationary pin that's attached to the hood?
The pin would still come out of the stationary pin yes.
If removed would the 3M tape scrach the paint?
As long as a heat gun or hair dryer is used to soften the 3M adhesive tape before removing, you should not damage the vehicle.
These would be stainless steel and would not rust.
The Modern Billet Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit will not work with S550 Mustangs.
This Modern Billet Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit is not an actual hood pin kit, and is just for aesthetic purposes. Since that is the case, there is no recommended placement as they have no real function aside from looks.
The Modern Billet Black Hood Pin Appearance Kit is specifically designed for the 05-14 model Mustangs. We cannot guarantee proper fitment of the S550 Mustangs.
This will come with two hood pins. You will have everything you need for the price of $69.99.
No but i would take tbe pins off at least.
Please see the link added below for the Chrome option.
The 3-m tape will not harm the finish and the pins are relative easy to remove.
They can be removed but you have to be very careful.
