    Shelby Styling. The Carroll Shelby Hood Latch & Pin Kit's classic retro 60's styling looks great on the any 2005 to 2009 Mustang. This is the same style latch kit used by early drag racers on their Mustangs, only now with a modern Shelby twist.

    Safety. The Shelby Performance Parts Hood Latch & Pin Kit not only looks great, but also adds extra safety to any high performance Mustang. The Hood Latch & Pin Kit securely pins the hood safely to the car to prevent the hood from lifting or flying off at high speeds, a must for all drag racers.

    Won't Harm Paint. Shelby Performance has taken the extra step to coat the lanyards in flexible plastic to protect your hood's paint from unnecessary scratches.

    Solid Construction. The Shelby Hood Pin Kit is made from durable 6061-T6 billet aluminum that is precision machined and black anodized for strength and long life.

    Application. This Shelby Hood Latch & Pin kit is specifically designed to be used on the 2005 to 2009 Mustangs with the original stock hood or an aftermarket fiberglass hood. Hood pin bezels: 2-1/2" diameter; (2) bolts have 2-1/4" of threading and are 3-1/2" tall from the end of bolt to the pin opening

      Hood Pin Kit is worth it.

      Love this hood pin kit. Didn't want a silver/brushed look so when they did this in black I was ready. Didn't take more than a few hours to install but most of that was just being slow and careful.

      With limited options, these make do

      These are the only black non-appearance pins I could find on the site unfortunately, but these look great. They were a little hard to install on the aftermarket cowl hood and the rubber strap sometimes rubs against the hood but with small discretions aside, these pins are great.

      Shelby Black Aluminum Hood Pin Kit

      They are easy to put on and they look great. If your wanting a real accent to a red or other color, these black aluminum hood pin kit is excellent.

      Functional, but fade over time

      Overall these are really good pins. Installation was a little nerve wracking (drilling into the hood was terrifying), but otherwise pretty straight forward. I didn't want my pins in the default location, but thankfully it was easy to deviate from the guide and figure stuff out. The big problem I have is the black finish faded pretty fast. They still look nice, but they are practically steel gray now. Also, the cables get pretty dirty really fast. I'm thinking about replacing them with some black coated cable from a hardware store. On the plus side, my hood has a nice, snug fit now when closed, and no more shimmying at high speeds.

      Shelby Black Aluminum Hood Pin Kit

      The Shelby Black Aluminum Hood Pin Kit was a very good investment, both in appearance and safety. The black is quite accented against the Grabber Orange body color. They are the best looking hood pins around. Secondly, they give me peace of mind, when it comes to upgraded safety concerns, Since installing an aggressive chin spoiler, the left side of the hood had a tendency to lift when speeds went past the legal posted speed limits. Opposing-direction Semis on 2 lane roads also abused the left side of the hood...kept trying to rip that side of the hood off. I'm good-to-go now. Thank you for the availability of this product. LJ

    Is it safe to use these without the factory latch, IE will these hold my hood down alone or will it fly off?
