I have a 95 GT that I would like to put a cobra hood and front bumper on. 5.0Resto sells an appearance package that includes hood, front bumper cover, headlights, and snake emblems. I don't need the emblems, but I was wondering if anyone has purchased and installed these non-OEM pieces on their car. I know the OEM Ford stuff fits great, but if the others fit well, then I will save the money and buy the aftermarket ones.

The kit is here:

So, anyone have this on their car? Have any opinions or horror stories about the aftermarket hood/bumper from 5.0Resto?

Thanks,

Paul.

dunno about the item, but 50 resto is a good company, I order about 95% of my stuff from them.

Nope. I think the factory Cobra hood is the best looking hood ever produced for SN95 cars. I tried like hell to make my 422 fit beneath it on my other car, and tried everything I could to make it work. No dice. Now I have a heat extractor Saleen-style cowl hood for that car and I hate it. :( I wish I could have Cobra hoods on both cars.

Even though I've bought a good many things from 50Resto I got the
combo from certifit ( http://www.certifit.com/ ) since they are local to me.
It didn't hurt the price was much better than I could find anywhere else. I'll let you
know in a few weeks how well my $277 for the hood/bumper worked.

They have a location in Houston(where my family is and i will be soon) and they have one in Baltimore which is a 3 hour drive from here in Va Beach... Hmmm.... I'll wait till i move back to Houston, it'll be MUCH cheaper in gas to do that. LOL
