We Are Looking For The Following How To Articles!

If you can or have done any of the following modifications and would like to do a write up on them we would love to have them in our Mustang Articles section. The articles should be as detailed as possible and include ample amounts of pictures to help with the how to.

Topics:
Installing Cold Air Intake on 2005+ Mustang (V6 and GT)
Replacing Heater Core (Any Year and Model)
Installing Caster/Camber Kit (Any Year and Model)
Replacing Brake Rotors & Pads (Any Year and Model)
Replacing Fuel Filter (Any Year and Model)
Replacing Fuel Pump (Any Year and Model)

We are not limiting you to the topics above If you have an idea for an how to article let us know and we will see if we can use it on Mustang Evolution.

Send all articles to website[at]purebluemedia.com

Please attach all images in a zip or rar file.

Man, I wish I would have done one when I dropped the gas tank on my old car and did the fuel pump. Don't plan on doing another one of those for a while.

I will be writing a 3.8 to 4.6 swap article if this project ever gets off the ground.

Re: We Are Looking For The Following How To Articles!

****, we just changed a fuel filter on LSUstangs car last night...and his springs so we could have done the brake one too.

I'll be doing my springs in the next month or so, and fuel filter as well, and IRS bushings, so, I'll try and get the brakes, filter, and bushings how to's done.

Yeah, brakes are intimidating to those out of the know...until they see it once and then they kick themselves in the *** for paying people to do it all those times....like me when I learned how.

Yes I used to be scared to do them myself because the last thing its seems like you want to screw up is your ability to stop.

But once I bought my Haynes manual I realized how easy they actually were and haven't looked back since.

Credit will be given to the author as seen here: How To Polish Your Cat Back Exhaust

We really need to beef up our article section! Let me know if I can help in anyway.

Re: We Are Looking For The Following How To Articles!

This would have been good to know before. I do have a few parts on order though, like a (1) brake line lock kit for heating the tires at a track, and (2) projector headlights, foglights and nice new bulbs.
I just changed to sequential taillights and put in dual pillar gauges this past weekend. Maybe i will change back to stock and redo them if you think people want how-to's on them but they were both real easy.
P.S. Changing my front brake pads were easy as sin but I had a hell of a time with the rears because of having to rotate and compress the piston.

Re: We Are Looking For The Following How To Articles!

Well, if someone provides a mustang, I can do a break change writeup, as I just recently did my jeeps and learned a good deal from it... Oh, and I can do timing chain cover removal very well...

I could use How-To's on both of those (Line Lock and headlights for an 05+)

Please consider doing it and I will put it up

Not a problem. I'll make sure to take plenty of pictures this weekend as I do it and get a nice write-up together. Well, the line lock kit is in my truck waiting to be installed but the lights won't get to me until next week.
