Default Lets see those Hood Pins

What kind of hood pins look good on a Saleen? We just changed to a fiberglass hood and I'm now worried that the hood is going to rip off the car at 100 mph!!!! The corners of the hood start to lift up around 90 mph & I need to install hood pins. I don't want hood pins that say Shelby, I'm looking for some pics of what you guys have that look good before I buy a set.

I was interested in replacing the hood pin set on my PJ. We are in the process of putting on a clear bra and wanted to replace the hood pin set. I saw the ones you placed on your PJ are they sold on EBAY. Do they fit or did you have to make any adjustments.

They are the Shelby Hood Pins without the Shelby Logo. It appears that they are sold on ebay.

No new drilling was necessary.

Trust me, after installing these hood pins on Tony's car, they are worth every penny! They are absolutely SICK!

But he have several kinds on our website: http://www.281motorsports.com/index.php?cPath=37_126

We have not put the Ring Brothers version up as we have only had 1 customer that has wanted to put up the cash for them as they are $250.

I would go with hidden ones. I forget who makes them but they don't show.

WMS has the stealth hood pins. I installed them and love em! You can't even tell I have them until you open the hood.
