Which set of hood pins?


Post by tmh » 12 Mar 2012, 02:43

WCCC has 3 different sets of hood pins. The cheapest ones (Shelby) and the middle ones (Ford) are pretty much exactly identical based on the pictures. So much so that I think it
might be an error on their website. Then there's the expensive ones which look different.

Any substantial differences here, or are they all more or less the same? Any of them gonna rust out or snap off or anything? How does one even pick which set to go with?

I wanna get my order in, using the gift card i bought myself with Christmas money, ASAP cause the valve cover replacement is keeping her garaged ATM and I don't like that. So I'm trying to get all my ducks in a row so I can place the order that will keep me busy for months to come. :)

Thanks for input, as always!
