Hook came unlatched somehow, flew up, hit windshield, busted windshield, I almost died, fiberglass cracked in half, and I looked like a ass.

It didnt fir right with the windstar throttle body and new jig, so I guess the pressure killed it. The windshield pissed me off more than the hood, because I was gettin a new hood anyhow. The near death part wasnt all that fun either. lol

my brother has a Trufiber WS6 hood on his '01 Firebird sixer - no problems at all. Fit was spot on.

Well there is one tiny problem but it's on him. He's been running it in primer coat since last summer and it has a small chip on the one nostril.

Yep. Like with most body panels it just needed to be smudged around to line up properly. But it's fine now, and since it's lighter than the OEM aluminum one, he's able to run it with one hood shock instead of two. Doesn't flex from the weight. He's been running it since last summer when a tree fell on his OEM one.

Cervini's 1995 Style Cobra R Hood (99-04) - Unpainted at AmericanMuscle - Free Shipping!
Best hood you can get imo. I have it and its great, clean and mean. I would stick with the 2.5 cowl unless your sticking a roots under the hood

i went with 2.5" becuase 4 is just too tall, imo. not to mention, harder to see the road. it wont upload the photo i was going to post of mine.

I've never been a big fan of huge cowl hoods without need....

2.5-3" seems perfect
