Going to be changing the hood on my 07 over the winter. Any suggestions and also what does everyone have on theres. Have enjoyed it since I have owned it but look forward to doing a lot more serious drag racing next year. Also going to add roll bar. Pictures would really help ! thanks

Marv, if your car has a white hood and factory paint, no paintwork that is, I will buy it from you if you want to sell it, i dont even need the scoop! ;@)

I just bought a Trufiber RTF hood. This pic is still just the gel coat. It's getting painted tomorrow. I'm getting all the stripes re-done. Painted Guardsman Blue like the GT350.

Actually I'm going to keep the stock hood. Was thinking of maybe a 3in cowl hood. I just think they look tough. Anyone have one installed?

Love that hood and looks great, what vendor did you buy from ? Any pics of undeside of hood ?

 

 

Thanks, I bought it from American Muscle, fast and free shipping. No pictures of the underside but I will try and get a couple, the fit and quality of these hoods is outstanding.

I went with the Shelby GT-H (CS6) hood as this was an optional hood for the 2007 SGT as offered by SAI. If you want function, then the deep draw Terlingua hood is nice. I'm just partial to keeping it Shelby, and the cowl hoods offered in the aftermarket seem a little over the top for me. It's amazing how the GT-H hood changes the look and profile of the SGT, especially when you add the GT-500 spoiler. Just an opinion, hope you find the "look" your wanting. regards, Larry

Is everything ready for the hood pins? Or how are the pins installed?

 

 

You will have to drill the holes for the pin post, sounds bad but not really a big deal. With the Kaenen hood you won't have to relocate your pins. I put a small drop of paint on the tip of the post and eased the hood down to mark the hole locations then drilled a 1/4" pilot hole with a cordless drill set to low rpm with light pressure being careful not to chip the gel coat then I finished with a 3/4" bit from the top down.

On the hood pin plates. Did you mount them with the same regular self tapping phillips pan head screws? Or did you use machined stainless or something. The hood looks fantastic! Thanks - Dana

I'm curious how the 3" hood looks with the SGT scoop on it? Blueone, do you happen to have a scoop you can rest on the hood and snap a photo?

Is the scoop functional on this one?

Sharp looking hood!

I'm sure it draws peoples attention to the car.

Especially seeing it come up in their rear view mirror.

Here is a pic of the hood mine had on it when I got it...I have come to like it, but I would still like to acquire a stock hood if anyone sees one out there for sale!

Bought a new set of pins and used the screws that came with it.

Sorry, my scoop is still attached to my original hood in storage.

Yes I thought I would buy a new set of pins also at the same time with the new hood.

It does draw a lot of attention...but so do all of the Shelbys...but it does have a little more menacing look thank stock.
