Yea, I'm super aggravated. He's buying a new windshield and hood. If the paints off colored I'm making him repaint the entire car. I know him personally, he's my moms ex boy friend. I don't even want to go look at it. I'll freak out on him and probably do something I don't wanna do.

Re: Just my luck.

Be sure to check the plastic cowl where the wipers attach and the roof line. Bets are both are damaged.

Re: Just my luck.

I had a Ford dealer garage blow up the rear end in the wife's 05 GT test driving it by putting in the wrong seal... Got a new rear end with my choice of ratio.... Which was a good thing...

Latest update is I'm going to use the stock hood untill the other one is repainted and fixed. I've decided to go with the cobra rr cowl induction. It's going to be green up untill the to lips than the actual hood scoop or what ever you want to call it is going to be high gloss black, other stuff that's going on is tinted tail lights, smoked third brake light that says mustang in it and my black rims are going on with some new tires. Also the mustang Gt vynil stickers on the rear bumper
