Miramontes wired up each turn...
Miramontes wired up each turn signal and installed the new lights into their places. Miramontes also went ahead and replaced each headlight bucket into the front end. All that was left to do was install the headlights and fasten each connection.
To finish up the facelift,...
To finish up the facelift, we installed a new 3-inch cowl hood from Harwood. Since this is a street car, we opted for the bolt-on show series hood with a fully finished underside. We also swapped out the factory hood springs for their optional light tension hood springs (PN 215). Once the new springs were in, we hung the hood on and made minimal adjustments until it shut without rubbing-it was a perfect fit.
While our transformation took...
While our transformation took the better part of the day and a few hours into the night, the final mug shot made it all worthwhile. The aesthetics of our RS conversion really added to the total package, and we couldn't be happier. What's next? If all goes well, the next time you see F73, we'll have our future open-tracker hosed down in PPG Jetstream Blue! CHP
