About six months ago, I bought a 1975 Basic two door Maverick. It had an extremely rust free body. Out of it's 38 years it set under a shed for over 30 years. Since then I have replaced all ignition parts, and brake parts, and did the body work for the accumulated nicks, and dents. Alas, It was finally taken to the paint shop today. It will be back next week, and will take another week for detailing.
Couldnt wait until Saturday, got my new BFGs today :bananaman. Also blacked out my Grabber hood inserts. Thats been on a to do list for a looooooong time.
Got my heads out of the shop, everything looks good and the springs will handle 512 lift easily 2.02 stainless intake 1.60 stainless exhaust chamber size 51cc.
Please tell me you only blacked out the "mesh" part of the scoops.
Yes, just the mesh part. What a booger to tape off too.
They don't hot tank them, and check for cracks?
