How do i remove the trottle body? is it just the bolts ? a write up of this would be greatly appreciated if it exists. :D:D:D:D:D

Mustang Hood Scoop (99-04) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!
theres a write up on the page.

As for having it painted, your going to need to hit up a body shop or someone to paint it when you get it, since for our year prepainted parts are not sold. Im guessing in the ballpark of 100 bucks for a good paintjob that will match the paint of your hood.

What color is your car, white and silver are easy to do yourself...If you have laser red it'll be a pita matching it. The install is throughly easy, it should come with a template to drill your holes, line it up, drill your holes and install done...

BTW: any custom paint store can paint match and put it in a rattle can, it will be more expensive than using the duplicolor at autozone, but it will be as close of a match as you can get. look to pay 12-25 dollars per can, depending on color.

What year is your car? The 99-00 Crystal White is almost the exact same color as Krylon interior/exterior gloss white. I used that on a side scoop I got to replace a damaged one and aside from me not using enough clear coat, you can't tell the difference in color. Also, check ebay. Used OEM hood scoops pop up on there from time to time and there's always replicas.

that hood scoops only 109 with free shipping man... i doubt you'll do better than that.. the hood scoops on ebay always end up around 140 at the end of the bid..Junk Yard will probably run around 150 for a salvaged hood.. and some absolutely refuse to break up a good front clip that they'll sell for around 1200...

It's not quite the same though. It's got sharper lines that work well with our body style and it adheres with double sided tape. I don't think it works with the honeycomb insert either. That would need to be modified to fit it I think. It just comes with a black sticker.

I installed the xenon scoop from am, everyone has pretty much already said everything about it, not oem, shaped slightly different, no grilles work in it, black sticker to put in it, mines black so I didn't bother using it, adheres with 3m tape that comes with it, I've never had a problem with mine
