Be sure to watch some of the videos on how to do the heater box so you do not break the case when taking the clips off. The foam kits that are available suck for the heater boxes I had to just make some of mine the ones in the kit were no where near close.

From the photos it looks like an aftermarket hood with a good fit. What brand is the hood? Did you have to do a lot of adjusting/shimming to get the hood to fit?

Yes, it is an aftermarket hood. Not really sure of the manufacturer, the box didn't have a name on it. As far as the fit overall its not too bad. I did have to place shims under the fenders to make it fit a little better. It actually has less of the factory bow than the original hood on my red Mach. One thing that Scott on the forum here pointed out was that the aftermarket hoods are not spot welded on the underside like the originals. I ended up spot welding mine just to make sure nothing moves later on. You also need to seam seal the seams.

Finally got the heater/a/c box sealed and put back together. Guess I'll bag it up and put it up in the garage until I'm ready to install it. That might be awhile at the rate that I'm going.

Thanks for the info on the hood. Maybe if you could supply where you bought the hood I could determine the brand of the hood.

I actually bought the hood from a guy at a swap meet. I got it for $300 which was a deal for me because I had no shipping costs. Sorry I can help on the manufacturer.

Thanks Lars! The small things are the only thing that I'm making progress on. Guess that's better than nothing .
