Sorry guys, but I could not resist this. Last week I got a call from the shop thats balancing the crank and rods for my 347, they tell me that my Harmonic balancer is bad. Called a couple of places no one had one on the shelf, at 4:00 pm cst I called Mustang Plus to check their stock, they had one, Bill Faull pulled it out of stock and hand carried it to shipping to make the UPS shipping time, I received it the next day. Thats gotta be worth something.

When you need a part bad, price becomes secondary to SERVICE and QUALITY. I always think of the cat clawing the custom seatcovers in a 68 cv.I was selling and the response that I received from the mfr., Colomco. Too bad they got out of the Mustang market. They did because of pricewars, and quality becoming secondary.

Some of us thinks their fiberglass parts stink. Got a Shelby style hood trunklid and apron that didn't fit really good at all.

They don't make that stuff anyway. You are correct though that it needs to be massaged to fit nice. I think in this case it might be Maier Racing that they get them from. Just my suspicion though since I don't know for sure.

When I bought the hood for Melissa's '66 from MP, they explained that is wasn't a "bolt on" and wanted to know that I knew how to work with fiberglass before they sold it to me. It came out pretty well, I think. There were no surprises.

When I had the Cervini's hood put on my F-150, it needed lots of blocksanding to get rid of the ripples at the edges. And at that, the bodyman that did my hood said it was the best fiberglass hood he had ever seen.

When I purchased my hood it needed to be sanded to fit as well as to get it smooth but it also needed to be filled around the hood scoop(GT 350 style) because it was slightly concave. The paint guy said if he didn't do it it would be very obvious once the paint was put on. I expected most of it though.
