NOS OEM Ford 1971 1972 1973 Mustang Ram Air Hood
#11
Patience was also a factor for me. I wanted my car done as quickly as possible - having a potentially endless search for NOS parts was not going to work for me. I want to enjoy my car sooner than later - I'm over the 'restoration phase therapy' part of my project... I want to start driving it now. Cool

That's probably also where I messed up initially... picking the first one I found that was actually in-town, instead of looking for a better starting point. That mistake of impatience added a few years to my project. Gotta find the right balance, I guess. whistling

Hang in there - your 'vert's gonna be awesome! thumb
