Heh, heh, actually I can turn back at any time, kinda why found another lid to mess with instead of the actual lid on my car.

Did the same with the hood, found another one to louver.

So I'll still have a good stock hood and trunk lid when I'm done.

The only thing I can't turn back on is the removal of the Basket Handle.

Heck I'm even getting the trunk lock cylinder rekeyed for my key instead of using the one in my existing trunk lid.

Oh you all may have noticed that I have gone to the trouble of relocating the lock cylinder and retaining the mechanical key lock. Could have easily eliminated the key lock in this process since mother mopar provided the electric trunk release. But I just can't trust the electric trunk release so I'm keeping the mechanical key function just for peace of mind but relocating it down as far as practical on the lid.

Work continues, feels like a 16yr kid getting work done on his first Hot Rod.

Got the keylock rekeyed for my current key for $26.88



Welding in the patch panel, oh, the patch panel is made from a portion of a 1957 Ford F100 Hood.











Just about ready to head for the louver press



Oh yeah, the obligatory foot in pic.

No issues for me, sounds great to me. I enjoy the sound every time I drive it.

a CAI under the hood makes more noise.

A little sound from my GT Convertible.
