Simple pullied Cobra set up making 600+WHP. Sounds legit lol
I thought about it Bob. The hood I have now doesn't have a hood insulator. But it's very smooth.Why not paint the bottom and run it like that Glenn?
Many of us paint the underside of the hood and run no insulation. It looks good IMO.
That’s shy I kept mine. It’s up top of my garage in storage. I have every OG part for my car except the transmission. I sold that when I went with a magnum.
I get that. That's one of the reasons I still have the blanket from my 01. Along with the fact that the wife put some time into painting the letters for me.
For those of you who know my 03 coupe know it has not received too much love around here. First because I removed the original hood and rear wing and I also custom painted the car.
Those moves are considered taboo around here LMAO. You can change the wheels or engine parts or suspension all you want, but mess with the "look" of a Terminator and feel the wrath of SVTP LMAO!!!!
No one here has ever said anything bad, but people have said this isn't their cup of tea. It's no problem and I can definitely understand the sentiment.
Now that I have gotten older and wiser I have come to realize the look of the Terminator should NOT have been messed with when it comes to the body parts.
Some of you know I went back to the original rear wing. In an attempt to complete the process I decided to go back with the original hood.
So, I recently purchased a hood from a member here. Thank you @wckdvnm for making this transaction very smooth and uncomplicated. I appreciate your help and the fact you drove to meet me.
Sorry about the paint job fellas. That "will" remain .
Here is the original rear wing re-installed and painted to match,

Here is the new to me original hood that @wckdvnm sold me. This summer's project is to paint this hood to match and install. I will go with the LFP hood vents as I did on my Vert.

As you can see this is an original hood. SWEET!!! Looking forward to painting this and installing it in a few months. Now for the impossible task of trying to find the under hood insulation. If worse comes to worse I'll just take the new one off my Vert and run no insulation on the Vert.

The weekend before last when I was changing the oil on the Cobra a neighbor was walking around the neighborhood with his kids. I'd say the oldest is 2, maybe 3. He was telling me how his son loves Mustangs and he's not sure where it came from. But he sees the horse and tail lights and goes crazy. I let him sit in the Cobra and dad took a picture of course. I told the neighbor anytime I have the Cobra out of the garage and they're outside hit me up and I'll take him for a spin around the block. Fast forward to last Saturday and I'm getting home from a cars and coffee and that neighbor is over talking to my son. I pulled up and asked if his kids was ready for his ride. I don't think my neighbor thought I was serious because he seemed surprised. He asked his son if he wanted to go for a ride and his son dropped his bike and ran over. I just took him around the block, but he was smiling the whole time. Another gear head in the making.
