Awesome, thanks! I installed my white gauges about a month ago, and I love the look. Only problem was the needle got caught on the gauge face itself. A little tweaking and it'll be good

Gauges are in, but they dont work. AM is sending me new ones. Also the 200 dollar per set caltrend seat covers are garbage, horrible fitment. I would pay no more than 40 bucks for the whole set. Oh well, lesson learned. Hopefully I can find some mach 1 seats soon.

They are just cheap all around. The picture does them too much justice. They are really poofy, and dont hug the seats at all, youd have to see em in person, things get worse once you sit in them. Its been a while since I've felt this ripped off. I am very displeased.

Its also quite annoying that the gauges were DOA. But they are sending me another set, and told me just to keep the ones I have.

Dont waste your money on them. If it was 100 bucks for he whole set I might be able to swallow that. But 400, no sir.

You could find entire seats on Craigslist or something for that price!

New Gt hood
New Gt front and rear bumpers
Side scoopes
Clutch, Flywheel etc
Ball joints
Tie rods
All new bushings
Timing chain
Water pump
Thermostat and housing
Alternator
Chin spoiler
New carpet
Body work
Complete paint job
Brakes
Strut tower brace
Sway bars
Sequential tail lights
Bullit gas cap
De badging
Plugs and wires
Hoses
Spoiler delete
Fuel filter
Window tint
New headliner
Bra for the 3 hour trip to Myrtle Beach ( cant chip the new paint )

My goal is to get her as close to new as possible. More so what a new 03 Mustang should have looked and driven like from the factory. Ive got a budget of around 6k, but limited time. The count down to mustang week begins.....
+1

For the spoiler delete. They look way nicer without them. And to the commitment your putting into your car.

Thanks. I ended up blowing my budget out of the water, and still have several thousand in work to do.

Here are pics of gauges before and after.

Not likely. My wife and I have been in and out of the hospital a lot lately. Im having heart problems, and she was diagnosed with cervical cancer this year. All the stuff is starying to push the mustang onto the back burner. But im still going to try to get it done, or at least make it to mustang week.

It really makes you wonder just how big a profit AM is turning when they'll just send you another set without wanting the brokers ones back.

They don't make much of a profit when they send broken items but they keep their customer. The way AM works; if customer is happy, they'll keep their business

It would end up costing them more to RMA it than to just send out a new one. There is a huge profit margin on those gauges. More expensive items would be rma'd

AM did the same thing when they sent me a beat up CAI. Told me to trash the old and sent me a new one. I've purchased more things from them since :p

Looks good, I never see anyone use the AC controls white face that they offer with it. I've been wondering how they look at night?

Btw did you connect them to your factory dim switch or just kept the one that came with it?

Used the dimmer it came with. I thought about the ac plates. But after hours of looking at the pictures I decided I dont like them. They look tacky. The white in the gauges is perfect on its own. But I wont have these for long. Im waiting on the simco gauges to be back in stock at AM. I originally wanted that cluster, but it was sold out so I figured these would hold me over.

If someone had a white mustang, and had some interior trim pieces painted white it might flow well with the ac plates.

What's the difference between the gt and v6 front bumpers?
And also the difference in seat belt guiders?

Gt front doesnt have the bars over the fog light holes. The 94-95 seatbelt guides have a much wider opening, making it easier to get the belt in. Great for me since I am always getting the kids in and out of the back seat.
