as fordfreak ef said. You got to first cut the top metal skin off the bonnet in the shape of the fibreglass bulge, then using fibreglass, stick the buldge to the bonnet.

Not sure about the shaker, but you might need to cut the frame for the shaker to pop through the buldge...

BTW...I'm hoping it's a V8 ghia, not an I6 Ghia.

when you say cut the top metal skin off you mean cut a hole in the bonnet with out cutting the frame to put it in
