I'd like to poll IMBOC members and guests. Please reply if you bought the whole MRT Reload Package.
I bought MRT's Bullitt Hood which is called the "1968 Style Hood" due to patent issues. http://store.mrt-direct.com/1968stylehood.html
MRT includes the grilles, light kit (including wiring) and washer relocation kit.

=================================================================================
My car, #2498 is an effort to produce a car in line with what Steve McQueen would do.
He would want performance with external appearance of the'68 car.

Car is presently at Livernois getting 1 thru 18 installed. I was going to send the car to a local body shop but learned Livernois has a full body shop too so am letting them do the whole project.

*Dampers M-18000-A
*Lowering Springs M-5300-K
*Sway Bars M-5490-A
Kit comes with Strut Tower Brace M-20201-S197 but am keeping the factory strut tower brace on the car since it has the Bullitt serial number of the car on it.

Hey Palerider, are they still working on it??? When are you supposed to get it back? Haven't they had it since the beginning of the year?

I sent it up there early January.
My car is one of the largest most intricate builds in their history but hopefully in time for the nationals in Indy. PM sent.
