Got my new balancer on last night. Today, I got the crank pulley back on and fired her up. No vibrations!

Well, some at lower speeds while she was cold, but that's from running rough cold. Once she warmed up a little, she ran like a sewing machine. This is the first time I've felt like I could give her some gas without worrying about her shaking apart. I'm such a proud papa!

Also figured out why I had no brake lights - one bulb was bad, and the other socket was missing its ground. So a trip to the parts store to get some bulbs is in my near future. Anyone know the # bulb I should be looking for? Quicker for me to ask than than looking it up : )

Soooooo close. Just a patch fix on a kinked fuel line (replacement later), and some brake lights for safety reasons and brake adjustments, and a few other oddball things.

Then I have to insure it....THEN I'll feel good about taking it for a proper spin instead of just up and down the street. At this rate I'm looking at another month or so - I hope no longer!

I'll have to decide if I want to dig into some bigger projects over the winter - that might mean insulating the garage.

I think the bulbs are #1157 for the rear. I just changed mine not long ago. Good job on the rest of your vibration issues!

We had my 12 yr old niece over for the first time since I got the car. Walking thru the garage, she looks over, considers it for a second, then gives a nod of approval and says "cool car" before continuing into the house.

I do not but I can give you an idea, the exterior is going to be red with the airfoil bumpers, hood scoop black, and chrome all black; even the grill will be red because the chrome trimming it will be black. I will be installing side scoops, those will be black too. the interior is going to be all black with red highlights, like the chrome on the door panel and I'm not sure what else inside there except for the carpet and headliner will be red also. I am going to be buying some classic mirrors to replace the sports ones, I am going to have those black also. All the chrome is going to be powder coated I think.

Beat the hell out of the front leaf spring bolt, but it wouldn't budge; it's frozen into the sleeve. Penetrating fluid, impact gun, even got it red hot, but no go. Time for sawzall.

Turns out angle grinder with a cutoff wheel is my best friend today. Got the threaded end off, but didn't have room to get to the other side without getting too close to the framerail. Since the leafs are shot anyway and I have the replacements standing by, I cut right through the eye to get access to the bolt/sleeve. That's as far as I got before kickoff.

I haven't done anything per se, but I just ordered a set of roush axle backs to crack open the mod on my 2014. I also got a new shifter knob. Not a fan of the stock one. Feels cheap. Next up is rear quarter window louvers, shelby stripes in matte black, and hopefully a gt500 rear valance kit at some point

I might consider that same option. I spent about 3 hours the other night watching plasti dip videos on youtube to make sure that it really is a temporary product.

Peels right off and doesn't mess with the finish at all.
I'm tired of spending several hours after winter trying to clean my rims

It all started with leaf springs, and while I was at it, I figured I would go ahead and replace (rather then repair) the fuel line, so I pulled the axle for more access.

One thing led to another and now I'm thinking the brake lines look a bit scary, so they will get replaced. And since I have so much access, I was considering cleaning up the axle and rear underbelly and putting por-15 on everything to make sure the surface rust doesn't get worse anytime soon.

I think that's all...for now.

I'm right in the middle of changing wheels and tires from Redline tires and mags to whitewall radials (better drivability) and brand new spoked hub caps. I had to order another steel rim, so as soon as it comes in I'm taking her down to the tire store and making the switch. Today was a beautiful day in Oklahoma City. Drove the Saleen a bit, too.
