No, I'm going to have the dealership install them. I'm just not comfortable with taking apart the interior and trimming one of the panels to do it. I'm going to buy the adhesive and other thing in the install kit from a local store, probably cheaper. The dealer should have the glass tool.

Thinking of looking at local salvage yards for the Stalker Hood or Trufiber hood that is similar to it. Probably a lot cheaper than buying it online. If it's not, or I can't find it in a local yard, I'll order it.

Honestly trimming the interior panels is pretty easy. Worst part is cutting the glass out and applying the new adhesive. Not sure what the dealer will charge you to do it but if you want you could always come to my house and I could help you. Only bad part is that you have to wait like 6-8 hours to drive it and you can't have the windows up when you drive it for the first 12-24 hours. I know you live a few hours away but 30-40 bucks in gas might be way cheaper than the dealer. PM me if you want 👍🏻 I learned quite a bit doing mine. It's really not hard. It's the unknown that sucks before you've done it.

Why do you have to wait that long? Because of the adhesive? And that you' have to drive with the windows down at all, nevermind for that long doesn't make sense to me.

Yeah the adhesive takes 4-8 hours to cure depending on the temp outside. The reason you have to keep the windows down is because when you roll them up and drive it creates a suction or a pressure inside the cabin of the car. So if the adhesive isn't 100% cured you could cause it to be sucked away from where it's supposed to be and cause a leak or worst case you lose a louver.

Oh geez. Good thing is that it's hot as heck outside in the summer! Well, actually, in VA, and you know this I'm sure, it could be 95 one day and 70 the next.

EDIT: We're most like going to call safelite and have them do it in the driveway.

You will still have to take out your interior panels first. Then they can't go back in until they are trimmed. Just FYI 👍🏻 I doubt safelite would remove the interior panels. But if they would I wouldn't want them touching my stuff. Haha. Well if you decide you want some help, let me know.

I'm aware, you can do it without removing the interior though. Just a small strip that would have to be cut, as it extends into the area where the louvers would go.

A guy on The Mustang Source has put together a guide of what he did, to install them without removing the interior. I'll see if I can find that again and link it.

Well removing the interior panels isn't hard. Honestly I think cutting them would be harder that way and I'd be afraid I slip and hit the paint. But hey as long as you get the end result 👍🏻

That's what I was thinking. I didn't expect them for another 2 weeks at least.

Just something I thought about. Would I realistically be able to get diminished value since the car is getting repainted?

Anyone know some good catch cans? I've heard JLT isn't, been looking at the UPR and Bob's firewall cans.

I went with the moroso because I like how it mounts and the construction is top notch

I didn't like that the majority of the others just "hung" or "sat" on something like a radiator hose ect. I also like the fact that the moroso has a drain at the bottom and you can easily empty it.

Saw this on Facebook. Looks like I may be buying a new PCV valve. Cheap, and seems like it could be a better fix than a catch can... for way less. Install of it is easy too.

Not sure if that would need a tune though.

It doesn't. This will be ordered and in the car in a few days.

Just went by the dealership today. Apparently the case number expired, so they contacted the regional manager to see if they can view the imaging and get approval to repaint at this dealer. Worst case, re submit the imaging through Ourisman Ford (the local dealership) and get approval that way. Either way, it'll take a few weeks to repaint the car, so I mkst likely won't be having it done until after the AM show, since I don't want to change possibly not having a Mustang for the show.

To keep everyone updated, never got a call back. I just took it to the dealer again. They say that it's over spray from the factory, so they are clay barring it pending approval, and if that doesn't work, then a repaint would be done, or so they say. This is really starting to piss me off.

I thought it had little bubbles on it. I can't imagine a clay bar fixing that. Sounds like they are jerking you around.

Isn't clay bar a magical thing that fixes everything? Just another dealer being lazy. How close are you to the warranty cut off? They might be trying to wait until you are out of warranty

Not close to warranty cut off at all. About a year left, and 14K miles

I don't think that matters if he has already reported the issue. The miles can go up after that no prob.
