Mustang Corrosion Problem/931Lyfe Update

So here’s what’s happening with both cars. One I hope will be covered by warranty, the other will cost me some monies. Ford hasn’t fixed the aluminum hood bubbling problem on Mustangs since 2005, and mine now has it and it’s 10 days short of a year old.

7.5/10 would rock this hood if they’d let me in an ideal world. It’s functional and stuff.

Of course it’ll spread like cancer if I don’t do something about it, and I’m taking it to the dealership after work to get the ball rolling on this. My concern, however is that even if they repaint or replace the hood, it could happen again....I wonder if the dealer would get me a fiberglass hood instead......probs not lol.

The 931 idles as I reported on Saturday, but only on cylinders 1 and 4. A smoke and leak down test showed 96% compression leakage on cylinders 2 and 3, and a bad head gasket. That’s gonna cost me about $1600 (unless I DIY) and make the 931 cost about as much as I paid for the 944, but it’ll run good no questions asked after that.

So that’s my Monday so far.
