Who makes the best fiberglass hood/fenders for 67/68?

#1

Post by Proeliator »

There are at least a couple outfits I know of that make these. Here are two just for conversation: http://www.e-bodyparts.com/Car-Hoods/Pr ... FGCH-1.htm and of course http://www.usbody.com/Pages_Cars/67-Cougar.htm

I'm not about to cut up my steel hood to fit the blower, so fiberglass it is. Just hoping to hear everyones likes and dislikes of whichever outfit they went with. Its really too bad they don't make a one piece fiberglass clip (that I can find) because a one piece tilting front end would be pretty sweet....but I don't think its in the cards.

Thanks in advance, guys.

Some of my friends got the one piece tilt front end from MAS about 15 years ago. It is typical of the fiberglass parts that are available. Very thick, need lots of work, don't save much weight. The main savings in weight was due to the fiberglass grille replacing the heavy stock grilles.

MAS was the only one I heard that made the one piece front end for 67/68, but I heard they went out of business close to ten years ago?
