Time to ditch the phony plastic hood scoop in favor of some functional hood louvers.
I looked at the Tiger racing hoods, which are awesome no doubt, but the carbon fiber one is quite pricey and the fiberglass one still being a fair chunk of change.
Add to that the price of freight (ships via truck) plus paint and it was just more than I was willing to spend on a hood.
So I visited Track Spec Motorsports
and picked up these spiffy hood louvers for about $350.00.
Installation was straight forward with finishing the extra large pizza I ordered being the hardest part of the project.
The parts came well packaged and are of high quality. Fit and finish were very nice and a semi gloss black power coat tops it off.
Instructions were complete with templates and measurements making this install a real "Why didn't I do this sooner" kind of moment.
I'm pretty excited about it and wanted to share this alternative with my fellow Mustangers who may be in a similar situation.
And with that, here are the pics:
Carbon fiber hood w/shipping - $2000
Custom Paint w/stripes - $1000.00
Getting similar results for 350 bucks....Priceless!
