Well, I jumped the gun on this one.
Apparently according to the letter that
Bullitt369 has from Ford, original holograms
should be cleaned with isopropyl alcohol
ONLY before applying the protective overlay
to the hologram. We don't have the overlay
from Ford yet. Bullitt369 had his hologram
REPLACED at the dealer. The letter he has
appears to be a blanket letter addressing
hologram replacement AND preparing an
original hologram with isopropyl alcohol
for the protective overlay from Ford...
which we are patiently waiting for.

Sorry about this Bullittheads.

BTW...I am still skeptical of this isopropyl
alcohol prep.

Seems they could have just punched out a special steel plate and saved a whole lot of trouble. Worked for Shelby for years didn't it?

I too jumped the gun, I clear coated the sticker a month ago. I wonder what we have in store for those of us who did this?

DHG#312,
Just have your dealer order it! He shouldn't have a problem with that and have him give it to you. You can then use it later if necessary.

Hi fellow Bullittheads!

When I said "I jumped the gun" I am referring
to the fact that I had posted NOT to use
isopropyl alcohol to prep your ORIGINAL
holograms when in fact, after clarifying
with Bullitt369, that is the procedure
dictated by Ford. Bullitt369 had his
shock tower hologram replaced at the dealer.
The letter that he has from Ford dictates
the procedure for hologram replacement
AND preparing an ORIGINAL hologram with
isopropyl alcohol for a protective overlay.
We do not have a protective overlay from
Ford yet...Art Hyde told me via e-mail
about two or three weeks ago that it was
"about ready".

For those of you that have protected your
holograms via other means...good job.
I think clearcoat is the way to go but I
would surely mess it up...you get one shot.

I apologize for any confusion that I have
caused regarding this issue.

Just a reminder, the replacement sticker comes with intructions to the dealers that these are NOT to be given to the customer and that they must be installed by Ford. So you may order it, but if you do so through a dealer that's uncooperative, you may find that they'll be sending it back to Ford.
