Nice ride Leo!

Looks like we all grew up and got normal cars.


BTW, That glass has ceramic tint on it. has a high heat rejection. Look it up, its expensive, but really good at blocking UV and heat.

Is that what it is? I had just read it was tested and blocked heat didn't know what it was. I know I've never had the shade curtain closed and I've never noticed it being hotter than any other car in this 98* temp.

Finally got around to some DIY stuff. Painted my coil pack covers in Ford blue. Looks similar to the oem boss 302 covers but a shade lighter which I actually prefer.

I think they pop nicely against the red without looking too tacky.

Also picked up a bobs autosport oil separator. The original bracket mounts it to the shock tower. Didn't like that so I made a few measurements and made my own bracket to mount it to the firewall. I was able to mount it without drilling into the car reusing one of the holes for a push pin that holds on the cowl.

I have billet hose separators on the way to clean up the routing. Overall very happy with it vs the original location.

What she's looking at after 1000 miles of ownership, nothing really changed exterior wise. Really need to get the grille paint matched but I'm waiting to get gt/cs side scoops to do it all at once.

Nothing major but I bought an oem style shorty antenna, wish I could delete it but they built it into the quarter panel. I like how it mimics the oem shape vs the other aftermarket ones that are just a billet rod.

Oh and a buddy gave me his old steeda plate frame, it was all faded so I repainted it, hooray for boredom.

Wow long time since I updated this.

Got a BBK 85mm throttle body. No big hp gains here but I felt like it gave a smoother pickup and idle is unchanged.

Got a steal on a steeda cold air. Painted the heat shield black, still need to oil the filter.

Picked up a set of brembo front calipers and stop tech drilled and slotted rotors. The rotors weren't coated so I painted them myself as well as the calipers. Unfortunately the roush wheels don't clear the big brakes so they're on hold for now.

Test fitted a set of 18x9 fr500s to see if I'd like the look of black wheels and sold myself on them.

Got lucky and found someone selling a 2011 gt/cs grille on Craigslist. Plan on painting the chrome bit Satin black, removing the tribar emblem and maybe putting in an original gt front emblem.
