Not sure rather some aftermarket hoods are made lighter or not. My cervini's is fiberglass as well but it's heavier than that cobra R hood. Also and I have to double check, but it appears that the previous owner or one of the owners put some black , a black liquid thick glue-like substance on the pass side part of the hood where it secures to the bracket. That may have something to do with it as well.
Ok I stopped when I typed the last sentence to go check the brackets. On the side where the black epoxy looking stuff was used, the bracket where the bracket from the body of the car attaches to the end bracket of the hood, it wasn't torqued. I torqued it down definitely got some good turns on it so from that aspect of it it's much much better secured. I probably won't get to drive the car till I take it in a few days to get the header gasket on driver's side changed. I'll see it if still shakes. I did notice also and there are some images below. It appears they had the center section of the hood cut out. Not sure if it was bought from someone like that already or what. Maybe the car had a different motor in the car and the 302 was just put in or back in to sell it, not sure. Anyway maybe if it still shakes some, maybe the hood is more flimsy and lighter than it would have been had it not been cut out? I like my cervini's hood and also like the Cobra R as well. If my other 95 sells ( wrecked) then I guess I may leave the cervini's on there though I'd like to keep it if I can and may just give a discount off the car minus the hood. I may need the Cobra R if I have intake clearance issues when I do my 351 so will just have to see. Anyway let me know what ya guys think.
