What will make this hood stand out from the rest will be a finished underside and option for hood pins.

If you want to contact me please send me an email at hotrodmtf@gmail.com and not a PM through this forum. Thanks.

I agree with that. I have heard nothing but good things about your products. Just hard to spend another 700 on a hood. Maybe I will get lucky and it will fit pretty close.

Depends on who made your hood. This one was made by FSI and has cost me several thousands to get it to our standards.

Looks great but one thing I do wonder about. It appears that the vents are non functional. Are there provisions for opening them up? As one of the problems with early stangs is under hood air pressure and you have two big openings in the front of the hood scooping up huge gulps of air, I would think that having a way of discharging it would be nice.
Of course, at normal speeds this is for naught but for anyone pushing one triple digits (Who? Me?!) that might be a concern.

Every time I see one of your products, it makes me want to change the direction of my build.
I was planning on a pretty close replica of a 65 GT350 (but with a modern suspension). But that hood looks a lot cooler than the regular 65 hood with a hood scoop. I'm glad I still have some time to decide.

I'm also interested on the vents being functional.
