There is. Slightly free the hood hinge bolts under the hood. Wear work gloves. Keeps the hood clean. Lower hood to about a foot from closed. Grab the front corners and shimmy to line the fender gaps. You raise and lower to get your line-up reference.
I got into this when i installed gas charged...
You are right on. My hood gap was creeping up. Not good for aerodynamics. I discovered one of the two 10 mm bolts was missing. Fixed that. Slid the bracket down to the stop, tightened the bolts. Firm pressure required to latch the hood closed. The surface match is jet aircraft clean.
Are u losing the bubble? This site is Mustang 6G. Way more people drive Camry than Mustang, but muscle is it's own market segment, different buyers. Who modifies a Camry? My S550 V6/6R80, I would not trade it for two Camrys. I put over $1K Steeda undercarriage in it, front extreme G-Trac brace...
I get the same experience the OP has and the others posting here.
I think a Mustang with a happy owner is just a thing that stands out
in traffic and many other drivers can't handle it. Especially Jeep owners.
They spent $60K for a square shaped steel grand stand section on wheels with knobby...
Why talk about 3 on a tree, WW2 Russians, Costa Rica, or 1987? That is not where Mustang manual gear change trans are today. The MT82, the TR3650, TR 6061 etc. are worlds advanced and with custom drive train components the top of the hill IMO. See the picture below. Try it, you will like it.
I have only done it twice, (pulled the 50A fuse) staying overnight in places I did not trust. As for S550 hoods, I open mine all the time in hot weather at home to let the heat escape. The V6 does not have hood vents. Gas pressurized hood struts are worth the bucks.
True. Most cars are used for daily driving. So, the drivers want the auto. Some cars are only used for sport, pleasure, challenging road route driving, those drivers want a manual and are fewer.

A cheap theft-proof is pull the Maxi 50 Amp starter motor fuse in the engine fuse box.
Put it in your pocket. When you come back to your car-put it back. No tools required.
Still worried, drill the junction out on a clean fuse, put that in when you are away.
Then there is no missing fuse. If...
I feel for Fastfwd. Guys that take pride in their car care about appearance and detail.
That is downright ugly. Do not assume the door interior was handled any better.
It was not a dealer, but a trusted repair shop, the owner (top mech that kept me as a customer)
put his rookie on my Crown Vic...
Attended a Saturday Evening Club Cruise last weekend.
Five Challengers on display with the usual corvettes, 32 roadsters,
mustangs, customs, classics, and rat rods.
Anybody that wants a Challenger should have one.
I will leave it at that.
Not many buy a sport/performance car for the back seat.
That said, I prefer the back seats in Mustangs over the back seat delete kits.
They are nicely styled and look far better than the strip down delete kits plus there is a sound insulation benefit. While it is what I expected, Pypes Axle...
My "sucks bumper to bumper comment" was about the car (Challenger) and no one posting here. Being a Mustang driver who looks like he likes what he drives, I draw my share of WOT Challengers blowing across my bow to demonstrate their HEMI hysterics. Who gives a F?
The big body big HP conspicuous...
This thread has turned in to a LOT OF LOVE FOR CHALLENGER fest.
There is really nothing I like about Dodge Challengers.
I think they suck from bumper to bumper.
Everyone that wants one should have one. They deserve it.
Visit TREMEC. 5, 6, and 7 speed manual trans in production + TKO, T56, T56 magnum, TKX 5 speed, and specialty truck manuals. Sport, off-road, and high torque truck use will always demand manual trans.
Is the manual trans dead?
Total agreement. The A6 has well placed and pronounced shift points, but not notchy. There is no hunting around. It amplifies the 3.7L V6 torque to perfection. What I get from a V8-manual with throttle I get from the V6-A6 with gears. [SCT tunning applied]. I have never won a drag race, I don't...
Good point and likely true. The difference between auto and manual is the difference between fluid and friction coupling. Friction has immediate control and feel. I think that is why it is more interesting and fun to drive. Fluid has slip. But I would not want to live in an auto world without...
OK, back to the topic, a few musings:
If you want to cut figure 8s in dirt or a golf course fairway you can't beat a clutch
if you want to drift a corner here or there or other technical stuff, you can't beat a clutch
if you love cylinder head back pressure pressing your torso into the seat...
