which hood?
#1
I want to move forward with paint and body, but before I do I want a ram air hood. I have had a lot of luck with Dynacorn products and am interested to see if anyone has installed their hood on a Mustang. Also I will probably replace the hood hinges with the premium factory hood hinges, anyone use them? I will probably keep it non functional for now, at least until I am decided on the engine I will end up with. the links are at the bottom... Thanks!

I used the aftermarket hood on my car..one of the better repro parts out there..fit very nice..On the aftermarket hood hinges not so good..I couldn't get the hood to line up properly consistently..the alignment would change every time I opened the hood..For the the money you could have your originals rebuilt a tad cheaper..I had mine done & there better new..heres my thread on the hinge rebuild

Everyone buys their hoods from Don.

If he sends you a bad part, it get's posted here so he has a lot on the line. As a result, he doesn't fail.

I agree with going with Don @ OMS. He has bent over backwards to find parts and will f/u with you to make sure your pleased. His service is out standing.

71_resurrection, I bought the NASA hood, hinges and springs, inserts, etc. from Don at OMS. The quality of the craftsmanship and fit for all parts is impressive. After looking around and speaking to a variety of people, Don came out on top, and again, the quality of product, as well as the customer service provided, prompts me to strongly suggest going with OMS. He gave me his cell phone number to call when the freight truck arrived, and everything was packaged and shipped wonderfully.

I can't say enough about the quality of materials, shipping, and customer service associated with purchasing a NASA hood from Don, as well as the value you get.

Thanks everyone! Looks like don will be the way to go when I get this portion of the car going. Right now all my money is being focused on a 429 that I got for a steal! Don, I will be contacting you after my wife starts to forget how much I am spending on the new motor...that happens, right?
