    Hey Tanus, how do the hood pins mounted on the hinges hold up? Does the hood shake around or is it pretty stable? I have big ugly brackets and that looks nicer.

    perfect, Ive done like 150mph like that and hood doesnt move or shake at all. Ive painted the hinges/bracket flat black since the pic, so now they blend in better

    lift-off hoods FTW!!!

    I ended up sticking with my SN95 e-fan. I painted it flat black, bought a black overflow bottle and got new mounting hardware.

    I completely forgot I never took a pic with the new fan.

    Looks like he cut the harness and used wire connectors to connect it back to the plug. I did something similar with mine, though you can't see that part in the picture I posted.
