You have been looking for a fake hood scoop? What for? I'm sure a vehicle in a junkyard has one. Too bad this one isn't around or i could let you have it. Since i didn't own it anymore my step brother had it towed to a junkyard.

I hope I missed something because this makes it sound like you are driving around with front brakes only. Please tell me that is not the case as it is not only REALLY dangerous, it is illegal and opens you up to a ton of liability if you get in a crash.

yeah, I have an idea to put one on a Toyota Mud Truck I'm building, and cut a hole in the hood under it, just to give a lil more airflow to the carb...
Haven't found one I like yet, other than the mustang one like you had...
that would have been awsome, and that would have probably been fixable (if there was no major frame damage)...

In that case no worries. I have had several projects that got moved around the yard with only front or rear brakes. One even had no brakes so it was moved with other vehicles so avoid a problem.

I got the slave cylinder to my hydraulic clutch replaced and hooked up. It is the strangest feeling to have a clutch at last.

Fixed the lack of compression in one cylinder. Pulled the valve cover off and discovered the rocker arm popped off the push rod. Easy fix!

It's was no longer my vehicle, and my step brother who drove it didn't know anything about cars. He told the insurance it was a GT and didn't know what GT was. Also, unless someone has an ever burning affection for the 4 eye mustangs with a 200 i6, it wasn't worth fixing. the amount of rust on it and the front clip being smashed into the front of the motor was a lot of work.

I see. Well it's too bad i don't know where it ended up, we have a few junkyards around here that it could have gone to. As for the damage, being that it was no longer our car we didn't bother trying to look for frame damage. The hood was jammed shut and you could see that the rad and core support were smashed into the front of the motor. The pulleys and brackets were all bent and crooked. It wouldn't have been worth the time.

Ha lucky you. I barely have room for my ranger and bronco on top of the other 3 cars we have.

As for my plan to work on the bronco today... I kinda don't feel like dealing with everything being wet or it starting to rain while i am working. I will figured it out later.

Yeah, just had one put in my Bronco a few weeks ago and it really wasn't too expensive. No where near what I thought. I think it ended up being $140 ($40 to fix a crack? Or $140 for a whole new one? Hrm....) and they came out and did it in my parking lot while I was at work.
It was sad to see the original glass go, but I sure don't miss the multitude of weather pits.
