Well promised the hood back today for the 4th time now. Fingers crossed. Went out for a rip yesterday with no hood. Good times!

Wow ... just amazing. Great Job!!!

I would leave the snake if it was me. Gives the grill character and good looks. Who cares it's only on the grill.

Again, amazing job ... Get some good pics .. this is background and screen saver material here !!

Thanks guys.
I'm pretty happy with it. Just waiting on the chin spoiler. Vents should be on today.
My plan for the snake is probably to leave it and get to flag badges on each side of the cobra similar to the Super Snake but say GT on one side and 5.0 on the other. Or Cobra on one side and 5.0 on the other? Something like that? Just ideas. If I had snakes on it I would def make sure people knew I wasn't pretending to be a shelby.

In reading all these pages (twice now) didn't someone say you couldn't remove the snake badge with the stock grill? If only the cobra could be removed to keep that simple look!? I wouldn't even put anything on the car except supersnake stripes, but would that be posing too?

The snake can be removed but you will be left with the snake outline in the grill... if you get a hourse with 3 strip badge like on the boss it covers most of it up and you cant tell unless you are close up

It sucks that they made the grill that way. I'd go with the 3 stripe badge instead of keeping the cobra.

Hmmm. I think about $2800 for everything. Ordered everything through ford except hood. Hood was 1049 through mr body kit. Which is out of Vancouver. Now keep in mind I got deals the parts as I get dealer cost ( Minus the hood ). Most of the complete kits you can buy are about $4000 + un painted.
Just call Ford parts department where you bought your car. Tell them you want certain parts and to give you a deal. Most dealerships are good with that after you have bought a $40000 car.

Not the Cheapest mod. But in my opinion well worth it.
