    Added some more bling to the ride. :)

    Tx...we need a thread for all the pix of your car too as you add mods!

    My latest addition....since the guys in the Mustang club have started calling me Iron Mustang, I figured I'd run with the theme for the shows this summer.





    She's ALMOST finished underhood. Getting a few more parts within the next two weeks and then she's done!

    Nice! Silly question: It that only for display or does it stay there when the hood is down?

    Thanx everyone...Nolan, it's on there permanently. Seriously tough vinyl was used.

    I gave it a baptism of fire by driving close to 100 miles the day it was put on. Passed with flying colors.

    I Was thinking, "Man I hoped something seriously heat resistant was used" figuring how many miles you must put on that car at any given time. (Fess up man! A LOT of miles....too much fun letting the pony "Run free" as opposed to "sit in the stable".)

    LOVE the hood That is AWESOME!! GREAT JOB!!! KUDOs to the artist!!!

    I'd love to do that w/ my thornheart emblem, but as hot as Hemi's run, I'd be a little leary. Let me know how yours wears w/ time & a little more 'heat testing'!!!

    You'd be surprised lately bro. Unfortunately she can't run like I want her to thanks to super unleaded being $4.41 a gallon by me and still rising.

    Also, since I started showing her, I'm actually looking to keep the mileage down now. Not ridiculous down, but around 8,000 miles a year tops.

    LOL...the artist is Iron Maiden's cover man Derek Riggs. We just took a bitmap of the art and blew it up to the right size.

    Vinyl is amazingly heat resistant. Think about it, alot of the stripes that people put on their cars are made of vinyl. They hold pretty firm. If worse comes to worse and they DON'T last, I'll just buy a new underhood blanket and swap them out when I get to the shows.

    Let me know what you want and maybe I can help you out.

    What about all the gunk that flies around under the hood, will you be able to clean the cover when you clean your engine?

    Well of course you keep it clean, but don't you pressure-wash it from time to time? Will the vinyl stand up the whatever you do to clean your engine?
