    Does this product come with a template to drill through the hood? I am kind of nervous about drilling through the hood of my S197 mustang and am hoping that this kit at least has some sort of instructions and template for the drilling location?

    cali

    • There is no template to show you where to drill the holes in your hood. This is not a project for the shade tree mechanic. You will need to remove the grille and have an angle drill available. The hole has to be drilled from underneath with the hood closed using the included brackets as a guide, you will have to make a jig to guide the drill bit.......THERE IS LITTLE ROOM FOR ERROR! Read all the product reviews for other tips.

    So apparently for 100 $ this kit does not come with quality lanyards. The metal wiring has rusted in only afew months and left the lanyards with an ugly brown look. Since I assume a replacement set of Lynch pins and lanyards won't be sent to me, how do I remove and replace the lanyard attached to the lynch pins?

    DanielF

    I bought the Shelby hood pin set awhile back the plastic on the lanyards have become ugly brown from the sun do you sell replacement lanyards?

    I have an 07 Shelby GT with facotry hood pins. The metal disc that sits against the hood is flat and not engraved like these. The metal bar?pin that slides through the hood pin is the same though. My issue is the pin tends to slide out, no matter how it's inserted, scratching up the paint and leaving dents in the metal disc. MY QUESTION is, is anyone having the same issue where the pin comes undone while driving? I feel these pins aren't designed to securely clip into place and not wiggle out while driving.

    Shelby hood pin fitment I have a 2007 Shelby GT. This package came with hood pins already assembled on the hood. They are looking a little rough, wanted to replace them with your hood pin kit. Will they fit on the same alignment where the other pins currently exist? I dont want to redrill any holes.

    JSWERV

    • If you have about 3/4" holes in your hood you can make them work without drilling.

      The shelby hood pins are a must for a 2005-09 mustang that that the hood wants to open when you encounter a tractor trailer and if your passing someone. No 1 looks they are excelent and functionality A1. I recommend these to all of you. Takes about 2 hours to install.

IF IT IS AMERICAN MUSCLE , 9 OUT OF 10 TIMES THE PRODUCT IS: 1) GOOD QUALITY 2) GOOD PRICE 3) SHIPPED QUICKLY 4)PROPER FIT 5) A SATISFIED CUSTOMER All because this particular retailer plays at a higher level above the rim and SETS THE MARK that other companies try to reach but don't always succeed.

      Hood pins

      Only problem was the screws should be longer. I replaced the original Shelby GT plates with these, using the same holes. It was real easy to strip the hole out. Should have a little longer scew.

      Good looking hood pins!

      Great upgrade, already had the Super Snake hood with standard hood pins. The Shelby hood pins is much nicer. Only thing i dont like is that the pin is not even with the hood plate, due to the curves on the hood!

      Quality Hood Pin Kit

      I decided to by hood pins after experiencing my hood popping up to the safety catch at highway speed. I have a carbon fiber after market hood with a functional scoop so it grabs a lot of air. Although the manufacturer advised the use of hood pins, I didn't want to chance damaging my hood so I went without them until my mishap. My hood is like the Super Snake hood on the Shelby and the mounting plates included with the kit located the pins too close to the scoop so I ordered the GT500 pin installation kit from Shelby and had a body shop do the install. They look fantastic and my hood is secure and doesn't shake at high speeds.

      The wow look

      I decided not to use the brackets I'm glad I decided to do that and put them on the corners of the hood it gives it that mean muscle car look and now when I'm driving on the highway behind a truck the hood dose not shake anymore and not afraid of it popping up

      Good look, but long term disappointment.

      This pin kit looks good, but after being installed for a while, it became apparent that the lanyards are not stainless steel. Both lanyards have rusted and discolored badly underneath the clear vinyl coating. The look very bad and completely ruin the look of what should be a top shelf kit. I would have expected much better quality from something wearing the Shelby name.

      Shelby Pins With Bug Shield Works!

      I looked high and low for anyone saying if these hood pins would work if a bug guard is installed. Well yes they do! I actually think the bug guard is a plus because it keeps the lanyards off your paint. These pins are nerve racking to install, but the instructions are well written, just trust them, its always nerve racking to drill your car. These are actually Scott Drake pins made for Shelby, the instructions are by Scott Drake. Only thing I would mention is to drill the plate mounting screw holes one size smaller than the instructions say, at 1/8th inch they strip out real easy, I stripped one, then went down a size and all was good. Great quality materials, fast super service from AM as always.

      awesome but scary

      They look great and my hood has not lifted off yet. They also look great. The scary part is being asked to take a hole saw to your hood. I recommend drilling the pilot whole and enlarging it to 1/⁴ inch and replacing the guide in the hole saw guide with a smooth .25 inch bar.

      Nice.

      Easy to install, looks nice. Had to move outward because of curve of my carbon fiber hood. Used only one hole in the pin brackets on the outer radiator bolts but seems plenty sturdy anyway. Nice but a bit pricey compared to other hood pin kits I have seen. But you do not get the Shelby name on the others!
