    with the hood pin kit should you still use the stock hood latch?

    hawkenstine

    • I did not. My wife broke my handle and the factory latch did not function properly. So I removed it and just used the pins. Keep in mind your hood can be opened without anyone getting inside your car once the hood latch is removed.

    Ford racing hood pins, does the bronze piece go under the hood?

    Anonymous

    • From the pictures I've seen and from my own install, the bronze parts were nixed entirely. The screws don't even fit in the pre-drilled holes.

      Horrible Fitment

      Bought these hood pins to put on my 2001 Mustang GT. The car has the stock hood. The problem I had with these hood pins was that the pins themselves were too short. These come with no instructions whatsoever, so I had to look at general installation instructions online. After doing that and reading several forums, the best way to install them was to drill holes on the radiator support where the rubber stoppers are. I drilled the holes and put the hood pins in there, then came to drilling the hood. I drilled my hood and when it came time to close my hood, I realized the hood pins didn't go all the way to the top of my hood. Overall horrible fitment and now I'm stuck with holes in my hood.

      Too short, needs connector nuts to work right

      I bought this kit despite it being more expensive than every other hood pin kit out there, specifically because I thought that the bolts would be just the right length/diameter for our cars (I have an 02). The bolts are both too thick (I had to drill out the hood bump a little), and not nearly long enough (when only using one thread, just enough to hold it, it JUST pokes above the hood). The "metal" circles that are on top of the hood are actually chrome stickers.

      for what you pay, the quality is decent but they are too short to work on the stock hood when placed where the tutorial says to put them.

      Review

      Beautiful ford product. Unfortunately the cables came out the box and are still in the same shape and basically unusable until they straighten out (probably never). Other than that they went in nice and give the '83 LTD foxbody a mean muscle car look. Took my time and did the instal in two hours with a drill and a step bit.

      Great quality but bad install

      I bought these for my 2004 v6. The orginal hood flew off while I was going down the highway so I bought a 99-02 gt hood. This hood looks great, but these hoodpins didn't fit were to short to fit where they were intended. I ended up welding both hood pins to more half inch threaded rod and they were fine now. Great materials and if they would have fit right out of the box. I would have given this a 5 star. Install to do it correctly is about 2-3 hours.

      The hood pins are about an inch too short if you mount them where the instructions say to. I ended up ordering 5 inch pins from another shop. Other than that it looks good!

      Great Product

      This is a very well made hood pin kit that looks amazing. I have seen several complaints that the studs are not long enough. I installed these on my 97 cobra in the lowest spot there was on my frame bar where my hood rest buffers were originally located. Had no problems. The installation took me about 2 to 3 hrs but only because im a perfectionist and took my time. My only complaint is the lanyards. They are coverd in a plastic coating to protect from scratches. They do that just fine but the coating is so thick it causes the lanyards to curl up really bad. I ended up not using them and will buy a different set of lanyards but for the money this is a great set and a pair of regualr lanyards if you dont like these are very inexpensive.
