    Who makes a good stock looking fiberglass hood for a '98 Cobra? How much weight savings is there?
    Thanks.

    our hoods

    (96-98 cobras) are the sexiest hoods ever. they are also the meanest. why do you wanna swap it out. btw our stock hoods are fiberglass.


    but anyway, the 2000 R hood looks real nice on the 94-98 cobras

    After my car got stolen and wrecked (damn hooligans) My front end was obliterated, as demonstrated by exhibit A:

    When I took it to the body shop and got the estimate back, the stock hood was like $800. I figured since it was on insurance's dime, I'd go ahead and get the '00 cobra R hood since I knew someone who was looking to get rid of theirs for $500 less than Ford would sell me a new one (and that $500 would help eat up the $1,000 deductable). A few weeks later, here it is with the new front bumper, new fender, new hood, new door skin, new headlights, rocker panels painted, and rear bumper painted (for a grand total of $6,000.

    Now with the hood on it, it needs to be lowered BADLY
