Re: LOOKING INTO GETTING A FIBERGLASS HOOD

I bought a Maier racing 67 Shelby style hood for the coupe. Overall, it was in good shape, but did need some massaging. With the front lined up, the back needed 3/8" in length added to get the gap right. The hood bolts had to be drilled & taped to in a new location and built up for the right elevation.

He also reworked the latch area to accept the factory latch and release mechanism. It was expensive, but it looks really nice.

Re: LOOKING INTO GETTING A FIBERGLASS HOOD

Why do you need a new one?
IMO better sick with the o/e hood, glass ones do not fit very well without a lot of time and money.
