    I Had To Use 4.2L Flywheel And Harmonic Balancer Because They Are Different. 4.2L Internal Balance. Was To Bad Because I Have Several P/P And Stage 3 Clutch Assemblies. But They'll Find A Home.

    Well While I'm Waiting For My Overflow Tank Thought I'd Get Going On My Hood. I Like The Hood Vents On 2015 GT And Think They Will LQQK Good On My 2000 Mustang. With All The Mods I've Made What's One More. The Color Is Just About Perfect And If I Can Cut It Out Right They Should Go Right On. What's The Worst That Can Happen, I But Another Hood? Anyway I Have It Marked Out And Will Cut The Vents Out As Soon As I'm Happy With The Measurements. Going To Use A Dremel Tool To Do The Cutting So I Have A Little More Control. And We'll See How It Goes. As Far As I Know No One Has Done This.

    Well Made The Final Cut I'm Committed ( Hopefully Not Nut House) Cut Out Hood. Going To Take Some Fitment But LQQKs Like It Will Work Out Pretty Good. We'll See. Not Quite Fit Into Hood Yet But Was Getting Tired And Didn't Want To Rush It Want It Nice.

    Got Vents As Good As I Could. Set Up Pads Under Hood And JB Welded Those Pads Cut Out From Fiberglass I Had From Cutting Holes For Vents And Let Setup Overnite. Taped Around Vents When In Place, Then Clamped It Down, Doing The Best I Could To Follow Conture Of Hood. Probably To Much Fiberglass 3 Levels All Bonded Let Set 36hr. Removed Clamps And Hood Scoop For Pressure Wash. Doesn't LQQK To Bad. Still Got Finish Work To Do. See How Close I Can Get It. Maybe Take To Shop And Have Hood Scoop Blended Into Hood.

    Well It's Been A Bit Of Time Since Last Update On Hood. Lot Of Work But
    Think It's Coming Out Well For A Rookie In Body Work Dept. Problem Is
    Hood Vents Are Made Of PVC Type Material And Don't Like Being Sanded On!
    fiber Glassed In On Engine Side, Cut Out Big Enough To Set In Place.
    Once Set Used Red Lead To Fill In Gaps And Did A Lot Of Grinding With
    Dremel Tool And Orbital Sander To Get As Good As I Could. Problem Is If
    You Do Your Own Work You Have One Bitchy SOB Criticizing Your Work!
    Since Every Time You LQQK Out Windshield You See Your Own Mistakes!!
    (That Sucks) I Think It's Pretty Good Still Need Another Coat Of
    Performance Red (ES) Code Found Great Match In A Bomb.
