Hood screens
« on: July 18, 2020, 06:27:48 PM »
Does anyone know how the  screens where originally attached to the hood were they glued or screwed on?   If you would please post pictures.   Thank you
Dan

Believe you will find that typically it depended on which screens your asking about. Might even help if we knew when your car was built (in this case converted as best you can tell)

Forward screen examples



Rearward screen examples

Jeff,  thank you for the pictures.  My car was built January 6 1969  I donít know when it was converted to a Shelby GT350.  Iím guessing from the pictures that the rear screens are glue only and the fronts are glued and have the two fasteners.  The screens on my car look like the pictures but are loose (one forward and one of the rears has half the glue missing) and need to be secured.  Is there any special tricks to installing them? It looks pretty straight forward. Thanks again for your help.
Thank you    Dan

Fronts don't use glue. Two screws in the front and two screws in the back just like in the picture.

Thank you for the information Bob who ever installed my front screens used silicone.  What material was used to glue in the back screens?

 Sorry but I donít know what a Ted bonding agent is or what FRP stands for.  Is there a place to purchase these materials?  Or what else can be used to secure the screens

FRP = fiberglass reinforced plastic ( shelby fiberglass)

Guess what is most important for the viewers is what finish is visible to the eye once the hood is complete and on the finished vehicle :)

Believe that is what shelbymann1970 is asking about.   

On the unrestored examples I have pictures of and the ones I've owned I didn't and don't see the almost red oxide colored sealant visible on the finished product/car. Will look through the collection again
