    Im new to the forum i have a 96 mark viii lsc with a 2.1 kennebell installed. Car was recently tuned and the last step for me has been the cowl hood installation. The hood I purchased is from super coupe performance. I noticed many guys on here have this same cowl hood and i was wondering if anyone else had any issues with installation? I am able to get the hood lined up pretty easily but hood will only catch the safety latch. Ive tried adjusting the hood and latch in every combination i could come up with and was wondering if anyone had any useful tips or experienced similar issues

    Real pain to d. Had to take a carbide burr and trim glass on hood around latch till we had clearance before it would latch.
    Polished stainless gat struts from 96 stand look really good with it too.

    Bought mine used, so I didn't have to tweak anything. Give bill at SCP a call.
