Any photos out there of GT-500's using the Shelby hood pins. Please post or direct to images. I'm thinking about getting some for my new GT-500. Thanks!

Careful there Buckaroo. Ask any of the folks that have them....the lanyard will wear on your paint if you drive your car. It's a real problem. You could use a little invisible bra on the leading edge to protect it.

or buy a locking style pin that has no lanyards.
or remove the lanyards.

but yes i've had them on my 2002 GT and the lanyards do cause a paint rubbing issue.

I'm not trying to hijack you thread, but how about the KR style hood pins.

Anyone using them?

Thanks

RayMan,
Here's a few links for hood advertisements. One somewhere (last one) had the twist-lock hood fasteners, maybe I can find it too.

I liked the locks on the last one (Venom) best, but don't know if the hood has to be special made for them though.

Good Luck!

Yup, those are my favorites also but they requires special mounting. I don't know if you can modify the oem hood in this manner, anybody know?

I do like the old school look of the lanyards though, sigh.

I've had hood pins with cables for almost 3 years on my other car (daily driver) and no paint issues. The cables are covered in a clear plastic coating.

I assumed the Shelby ones were coated as well, no?

RayMan,
Ran across these last night following a link from here. The site says these are for '05-'09 OEM hoods ONLY.

There is a link on this site for installation instructions (right below the "add to cart" button).

BJ,

Those look like the ones I am looking for. Are they functional, it was hard to see from the photo? If so where do the pins mount?

Thanks

Stew
