FASSSST  standing still!!   I've been wanting to weld up a similar scoop, but I want a spare hood to experiment with!
If you get a chance, could we see some pics of the underside of the hood please?

Thank you,  Brad

You can see they took the "Y" beam from the stock hood, and welded it to the bottom of the cowl for support....

Hmmm. To each his own, but I am not a fan of that hood. But the car is coining along great!

Here are pics of the wheels also:

17x10 and 17x9 Mustang Saleen SC replica wheels.

Tires are 275 on rear, and 235 on front.

1" spacers in the rear, and 12mm spacers in the front. I should have went bigger on spacers in the front.

Looking real nice man,, you are lucky to have a friend who does paint.. took my red Quest to a custom shop to get a price on painting the whole car.

7-8 grand!! politely said thanks,, but i do not want to put that much in this car..

3.5k is the lowest so far.. and I would not let him paint it,, i could tell he was looking at short cuts.
No one wants to paint a whole car anymore,, except Maco.. LOL

My friend quoted me $2k and it wouldn't be show quality but nice.   I'd expect $3k-$4k for a very nice job....
