    Oil leak (ugh)

    Putting on a new pan is 10x more trouble than fixing the one you have, plus it'll probably leak too.

    Trunk Fitment !!!!!!

    If you push the trunk lid down into the opening, that gap will close. Aside from the fact the curve of the lid doesn't match the body (which will get

    As with most things I'm learning from this build, it will take some more work to fix, but in the end it will be worth it. Mike Forte will be bringing

    It very well might be Indigo Ink however it appears that the video was shot on kind of an overcast day which could be making it look darker than real

    Ok. Now I understand. I thought that after enlarging the hole you still could not get it to fit. Sorry for the confusion.

    Jimoco, The problem is that if I open the hole up by breaking away the pieces, the hole is too big. Since I won't have the vinyl folded in the hole,

    Trunk Fitment !!!!!!

    Thanks for the input Ed. Actually I have a gap at the bottom lip to body of approximately 1/8"+. Did you have to remove because you had no clearance

    My Mk3 was similar. For me the solution was to trim the bottom edge of the lid and adjust the latch if necessary so that it's pulled more into the opening.

    Has anyone put a 18" low back Kirkey in MK4?

    And if you need to move snaps a bit it is no biggie. Drill out a rivet, drill a new hole, install a new rivet. A comment although a little off by brand.

    The usual 'indigo ink' is a lexus color from maybe 6-8 years ago. IMHO it is pretty dang dark. I suggest you look at Mustangs 2012 to 2017. I am really

    Al,

    If you have to open the hole up a little, use a dremel with the 1/2" or larger barrel sander tool. That's what I used on mine and

    I don't understand the problem. I have the ffr vintage gauges and only needed to break away the smaller hole. My gauge fit the hole without any other

    I know the motor is in etc so this won't be the easiest, but could be the best long term. Pull the motor, cut a whatever you need section out of the pedestals

    If you want to use it holesaw then clamp a piece of 3/4 plywood behind the hole to act as a guide for the centering bit. I would predill the centering

    I can't imagine that they do. Think of what it would take to cap off the top of the pan to be able to pressurize it. I am thinking try JB now w/o draining

    The 351 blocks will fit a Motorcraft FL1A filter which is pretty big. I hope others will chime in as to whether it will fit the 302. If not, there is
