    Looking for some pics of how the hood cover (cover that is fitted after the hood is folded down) fits onto panel behind the seats.

    My cover doesnt line up with the fasteners that are fitted to the car in this area so was wondering if there were different positions or as I suspect I have a 355 cover.

    TIA

    I think the locations of the center fastener (the one above the hydraulic pump) for the 355 may have been different from year to year. Mine is off center, but matches my cover perfectly. Others might be centered, I'm not sure.

    Here's mine during its annual leatherique treatment.

    (the one shown is from a 1995 F355)

    Hi Steve, if its the black cover I sold you many seasons ago, then its definitely a 348 cover, the reason I sold it on was because the fixings for a 355 are much lower down towards the floor and these ones didnt reach, without the correct fastening it would lift at speed.

    Hope you are well :)

    If the black cover in the picture is a 348 cover, it sure looks different from mine. Where is the center opening for the shoulder belt?

    Hi Neil, all good here thanks, how's yourself ? we must get out for a meet this year :D

    Yes it's the Black cover, fits perfectly except where it fastens to the ECU cover behind the seats.On mine the fasteners are located a few inches lower than the cover reaches.Just made me wonder if there were two positions for the fasteners or maybe mine has them in the 355 position as it sounds like I am experiencing the same problem as you did.
