Does anybody think they look good on the 99-04 body style? I saw them on American Muscle for like $56 and was wondering if anyone has them, how easy the install is and if its worth it.
Umm... actually the $56 ones are just stick-ons. You have to spend $70 to get actual hood pins that need holes. :yelwacko: UPR Products sells a bunch of different sets (satin, polished, black, really basic, etc) for cheaper. Ford Mustang Billet Hood Pin Kits at UPR Products - Lifetime Warranty!
As far as looks, I can see how they might look a little much on New Edges -- you guys have pretty complex hoods, and as somebody mentioned, makes it look busy. But look at what it offers ya: you can now remove the goofy hood latch and cable stuff (mine kinda sticks anyway). This is especially good if you have a wide-open grill area so you can see that ugly yellow latch... :shigrin Also, I find it easier to unpin the hood than to have reach in and pull the handle, then wiggle my hand under the hood to find the latch, and slide it sideways. Also, it's much
easier to close (don't have to try multiple times, and no need to slam the hood) and more secure of a hold -- you now have two thick steel pins holding your hood instead of a spring-loaded latch. :gringreen
But that's just my .02 :wavey Get 'em if you like 'em -- it's your car! Also, I got my hood pins as a gift, so no cost to me! :hihi: But due to the money, I might postpone it until after a few other things are complete... :bigthumbsup
