Slightly off topic. How hard is it to remove the covers??? I see all these great looking covers and I want to paint mine but I'm not sure how/how hard it is to get them off
Was wondering the same thing.....

It's not hard at all, just a little time consuming because eachcover has so many bolts. All in all, with two of us working on it, it only took a little more than an hour to pull off the old ones and install the new ones

Out of curiosity, I had calledmy local Ford dealership a few weeks back to see what they would charge for the install, and they wanted $200 just in labor. So def. a lot cheaper to do it yourself. Or do what I did and have someone that's done it before help you out!

Looking good, but the color isn't silver, it's aluminum... Let me know when you are ready for the SS hoses and I can get you the exact part numbers.

I can do an install alone in about 2 hours. But I have also done it a couple times. So $200 from the dealer sounds about right and it appears for once Alldata is correct and not over inflated.

Tacobill did a install write-up a while ago... https://mustangforums.com/m_3402092/tm.htm

Boozshey could you help me do mine? I'm just up I-75 a ways. How far is it to Detroit from Florida? Nice job by the way.
