Hi All,

I have been looking for a GT500 hood that is closer to the GT500 style for a bit now. I've seen the IKON one, and I really liked it, but it is currently unavailable. The Vicrez one looked like it was the same design, but the photo used on the website is of the 2015-2017 hood installed on a 2018, so it doesn't fit properly. This made me really apprehensive about buying the Vicrez hood.

Well, over the weekend they started posting customer photos and it was everything I had hoped it would be. So this afternoon I purchased my new hood. I will upload photos of the process here in case anyone is curious to see it.

I will also attach photos of the Vicrez customer photos here that I have found. :)

Do it!

I haven't even been able to visit my son who works for Ford in Dearborn for fear of meeting (and beating) anyone who was involved with, approved, condoned, tolerated or didn't gag over the S-curve in the factory hood. Basic rule of design: don't let one designer start at one end of a panel and another at the other end and hope it works itself out.

That GT500 hood is the best no-S-curve hood yet.

My Vicrez gt500 hood arrived today. Very well packaged and came quicker than I woulda thought. Ordered on the 13th. Hood looks perfect and just have to check fitment and then off to paint. The vent is like a hard plastic and I am gonna sand and take the sharp edges off the lower openings and also, the very front vents have no weep holes like the gt500 so water could stand there. So I will be adding them as well like the OEM before paint. My buddy has an extra OEM one so I may see how the fitment is as well.

Hood came. Fits great. I’ll line it up perfect once painted but here it is just bolted on without the latch just sitting closed. It’s super light weight

What size quick latch hood pins fit in The indents, there’s a few versions. Because there’s no way I would be putting make believe quick latches on there.

Already looking into that. Not sure which size to get. Also the pin mounting location. If anyone knows chime in but I don’t think many have this hood so.

I mean the brand is quick latch. Many online shops sell. Including Anderson composites. Wouldn’t buy there though.

It looks great!!! Mine came super fast too.. so fast in fact that the body shop wasn't ready for it. They already fitted it on my car to check fitment, and they said it fit great... Still waiting for them to free up some time to paint it and install it!! I'll post photos as soon as they do!

Good question on the latch size, Semp1, as Quik-Latch has two sizes. (model QL-38 that is 1.75" diameter, and model QL-50 which I understand is 2.5" diameter). There's a significant difference in price, so I can understand why the question. Can anyone help him with the diameter of the hood pin recess on the Vicrez?

Looks like 2.5”. However not sure on pin location And still waiting on someone to paint. Not many people wanting to work these days. Ones that do are months out. But it has to be perfect. So just waiting.

I just visited the shop where my hood is. They have had it for over 2 months now!! He said he was having issues with another project and he should be ready by next week. 😒
