Does it have to be a SS hood ??

 

This looks like a very nice carbon fibre hood very similar to the SS hood

That's too bad, because that is one bad *ss looking hood, in addition to giving more room for you guys looking to upgrade your SCs. Wonder if some other manufacturer will pick them up...

I got this email today from the Shelby store regarding the supersnake hood being sold by cruisin concepts. I guess I'll give them a call tomorrow and see if it's true.

 

Here is my email to them

 

"Hello,

I am currently in the market for a 2010+ supersnake hood and i noticed this website was selling what they claim to be the Offical Oem supersnake hood! I just wanted to make sure it was legit and they are actually being made or if there is some kind of wait time."

 

Here is what they said

 

"Hello,

    Yes, Cruizin Concepts is a wholesale dealer of ours. They purchase the hoods directly from us. The hoods are currently available. Feel free to contact me with any further question.

(702) 405-3500"

Would honestly rather stick with authentic shelby parts. and a fiberglass hood. Plus not a huge fan of the metal heat extractors on that hood. And another downside is they want $1,800 for that hood.

 

I have ran into a few folks with Shelby cars that want to stick to the authentic parts which is fine. One thing to be noted about the Trucarbon hood is that the vents you see are removable so this means the powercoaters are your friend :D (we have our hood vents powdered a matching dark gunmetal color, looks great) AND if you had a dealer friend, you would not pay $1800 for that hood :rolleyes:

Thats true. Would you be able to post some pics of your hood and of the vents?
