What's in the Box
This is a Factory 2.5" 2000 Cobra R Hood for your 1999-2004 Ford Mustang GT V6 or Cobra. We at Latemodel Restoration Supply are proud to offer the highest quality fiberglass products available. Using the best in production materials, these hoods fit right and require little to no finish work before paint. Hoods feature an unfinished underside and is very similar to several popular cowl hoods.. All parts are a direct bolt on unless otherwise noted.
Bodyshop said it took a few coats of priming and sanding to get it perfectly smooth and that the fitment did require some creativity, but it looks and fits great now. The hood is well supported around the exterior and has a metal latchplate that's sandwiched in fiberglass. Although LRS told me that hoodpins are not required with this hood, I'll be putting on some Aerocatches just to be on the safe side. I can say that up to 80mph, I've seen no fluttering or movement, but it is a bit wobbly when not latched. What do you expect with a lightweight fiberglass hood though?
Had a problem with an order/quality issue. I put up a review stating so, and was contacted by Mike Linley, who was soooo nice and sooo professional, I almost felt bad about my review !! I felt the review was necessary because of bad welds/paint. Mike explained that they had a particular issue with that supplier and they had changed suppliers because of it. I must have mistakenly got an old set. (upper/lower Control arms-Foxbody). Mike asked a few questions, and was Sending me an updated replacement set while we were on the phone.!!! This is what I wish all Vendors would do; no arguments, no blame, no B.S. !! This is why LateModel stands out as an upstanding company, and backs up their products with AWESOME Customer service. Very rare in this day and age, and because of this I will be a customer for life, and will spread the good word ! Great to know some honest and Classy companies still operate in the good ol' USA. Thanks LateModel, and Thanks Mike !!! I look forward to seeing the New LCA'S and will review them too...You guys did the right thing and should and I'm overly impressed!
