Default Pin On Hood Fasteners

SS/CS allows fiberglass lift off hoods with scoop limits of 11 inches above the hood surface. Thinking of adding a glass hood with a Thunderbolt blister to my Mustang. Any thoughts on keeping it on with as little hassle as possible in getting it off?

Asking here because more lift off and tilt up glass users in Comp.

Put tabs on all around the engine compartment and fasten hood to the tabs with spring loaded flush mount Dzus fasteners . Looks nice smooth appearance and no fumbling for or lost fasteners. Fed 387

Don’t know if this will help you, check out quiklatch.com pretty slick little deal though.

Thanks, guys. I'll check both out. The Dzus fasteners seem to have the lead price wise.

Think some fasteners are not accepted by NHRA. Wonder about two large hood pin styles, similar to the Quik- Latch style?

I can't find restrictions on fasteners in the 2017 rule book but that dosen't mean they don't exist...

I'm thinking 8 fasteners. Three on each side and two across the front. Cost will determine the exact style. A flat hood and T Bolt blister will run me around $550.
