I like to disassemble things.
The powers that be in Detroit have been made aware of this issue. It'll be interesting to see how they choose to address it.

Pulled the cover back today and Inspected my hood. No cracks that I can see. Something to definitely keep an eye on though.

Whenever I try to get excited about getting a 500, a new thread pops up to pour water on the fire.

It seems like a lot, but I would not let it stop me from getting one. It is not uncommon with a mass produced vehicle. Just shy of 6,000 units for 2020 may not seem like a mass produced car, but it's built on the same line as the mass produced mustang.

Almost no one is wishing they didn't buy one.

I wish I could afford to buy 2, then I could buy 1 and still have $85,000 in my bank account.
Then you could send it to Shelby American! 🇺🇸

So that is how you managed the trip to Vegas?
Rumor has it, they threw in a high priced call girl with the purchase of an SE package.

Hood had been ordered and should arrive next week. The body shop will paint it and let it cure for two weeks or thereabouts. Then I will bring them the car and they will mount and adjust the new hood, then apply the stripes.
I was told to drive the car as intended until they need it to mount the hood. Good thing because tomorrow night looks perfect for the drag strip.

So now you can have sex on the hood and not worry about the consequences.

That's what I would do, lol
