My wife and I are blessed and do well. But she still gives me crap for spending so much on this car from time to time. As long as I dont spend more than a thousand or so a month on my toys she tends to not hassle me.

But I cant lie, Dave Ramsey has excellent financial advise and programs that can help everyone live like no other. Hes played a big part in our financial planning.

I believe it has half the wiring from the inside where the gt fog light button would be, that's about it.

Vmp tuning makes a whole kit for it for around $200 but I just bought the fogs and housing from amazon and wired them to my headlights so whenever they're on so are the fogs. A lot cheaper

Merry christmas guys! Stage two clutch kit and flywheel going in next week! I also just ordered the front and rear bumpers. Im hoping to have all the body work done and into the booth soon. Im thinking she should be ready for paint in February. Need to get the hood ordered and the gt hood scoop and side scoopes, but should get around to that next week as well.

Oh and I got the new alternator in today, it was quick and simple so I didn't bother with install picks. Some of the more complicated stuff I will though.

I got a CAPA certified one from rockauto.com. It was 209, and another 140 for shipping. I went with that one because it does not have "mustang" embossed on it. Im going for a clean sleek look.

But they do have some cheaper ones too, around 120 bucks. They are just not CAPA certified so fitment may not be spot on.

Well, let's add a rear sway bar to the list. Just talked to a guy, going to pick up the rear sway bar monday from his 96 for 25 bucks!

I wish I had time to get all this new stuff installed, but I've got to make time this week or next to get the clutch kit and flywheel in, the rear main seal as well.

The color doesn't matter as the whole car is getting painted in a couple months.

Busy day today. Picked up my hood, and strut tower brace, bought a fender extension I had been missing and painted it and then went to the ford dealership and bought a 2010 Taurus SEL. Full day indeed.

Oh, I got the wonderful email telling me my mach 1 chin spoiler shipped from american muscle.

The little diva behind the mustang in that picture is my youngest Alyssa, and only girl. She digs mustangs more than her 6 and 14 year old brothers!

Picked up the rear sway bar today, painted it red with caliper paint, and will get pictures after it dries and install it.

dont forget the trim/black chrome... when those parts are faded it ruins the car, same goes for rust on rotors and little touches like that. Generally cheap to fix and makes all the difference.

yeah take the inner portion of the wheels...about every 2 months i'll pop my wheels off and wash and wax them...a good coat of wax really keeps the dust from sticking and really does make a visual difference

I took it for a spin. Between the sway bar and the strut tower brace she seems to corner better, but it could just be in my head. Ill have drive it more.
