PG. 48 --- POST#479 WINDSHEILD WASHER JETS RELOCATION HOW TO AND PART#

Hey everyone, just a bit excited over completing the conversion of mine and my friends(mystang04)car. We worked on setting this up for weeks. We finally picked up the painted part on Friday afternoon and started to work on the cars later Friday night. Now we are done and enjoying the hell out of all the attention these cars are getting. It's late and I'm really tired from all the work and the last 2 really late nights of installing so I'm just going to post a few completed pix for now. Will post before, during, and after pix later. I hope you guys enjoy as much as we have so far.

I always thought the GT500 front looked like a Great White Shark's mouth moving in for the kill.

Like the rest of us, how mch does it cost and what parts were required? I remember you guys mentioning things like Fender well covers and everything, but I can't see why it would need this. (Seems like all you would have to do is change the front fascia like so many that are out there now.)

Lots of questions! I'll combine them into one:

What Parts Did You Need?
How much were they?
Where did you get them?
What did the install entail?

Looks fantastic

Now why'd you go and copy me?? Ha Ha!!!! Good job on the conversion. The nice part is that since the price has gone up and will be going up again shortly this conversion will be less and less common. That is til someone comes up with a cheap copy of the Ford Parts. It was pretty damn easy though right???Congrats and Nice work Joe!!!

Sweet, sweet, sweet. I can't wait to do mine. I just got all the rest of the parts today. I bought a fiberglass GT500 hood too(only one in existance), and I filled the vent holes with fiberglass. I am doing some more body work on it today, and as soon as I can get it all painted...I'll be cool like you!
