They look sick!

In seriously at a loss with this. Every single trick I can find online, I have done. And the thing will NOT budge AT ALL. Now my extension is stuck in there because the seal was too tight around it after wrapping a layer of duct tape to make it a hair thicker.

Just imagine if you had to pay a shop to do all that. Granted they prob have better tools and prob could have done it in half the time but still. You prob saved yourself a few hundred O just on that alone not to mention the rest of the labor. Good job man

Mine shipped the same way. The 2 rears came in last Friday ordered them on Wed (1am 3/16) last week, and the fronts came in yest (3/21). But my rears were the wrong color, they processed the reorder for silver which is what I ordered and their supposed to be here tomorrow. They ship quick to me, they come from PA, not sure if they have multiple warehouses or not across the country? Always wondered that about them, I dont know why, I wonder stupid things.

They look good and will be great on your Bullit. Cant wait to see the crazy colors you dip them in. It would be cool to do that, see a ton of auto x and rally cars with crazy colored wheels. I dont know when it became a trend in that world, but its cool and different at least. Plus dipping them doesnt hurt anything if you want to go back to stock ever.

With Autocross often since its on old air strips there is a ton of gravel. There's usually a good amount at my course, but I run in the afternoon so it gets kicked out of the way by then. But still a chance. I've found some scratches on my Bullitts. So it'll look good and help protect them as well.

It would make sense if they were different sizes. I got 4 18x10s all in the same order, that's why I was a bit confused about the delivery dates. They all left AM the same day also.

For the most part it's year round, just depends on where. I do mine usually at Mather airport in Sacramento, but they generally only have 2 events per year. There are usually a decent amount in Stockton, and some in the Bay Area I believe. It's been hard for them getting locations secured.

Mine shipped the same day too, but like an hour apart. I assumed it was because the first set made it to the truck that evening and the others waited until the next day and then hit to close to the weekend. Hopefully the next order is the right color, lol. Im sure it will be.

After the trans is up then i just have to put together the rest of the car lol. Torque Arm exhaust, starter, shifter, driveshaft.

Also started to take the stock cable out. Only issue is i can't reach way up inside the pedal with the Corvette next to the Mustang so i can't open the door all the way lol. I'll have to pull the Vette out tomorrow to get that done. Would like to be all wrapped up Friday because i have plans to go out that night and probably won't wake well that next morning if you get what i mean lol

You might want to remove your drivers seat. It'll make your cable/quadrant/firewall adjuster much easier.

Like I said before make damn sure when your clutch is torqued down that you can easily slide the alignment tool in and out of the clutch with zero resistance. Otherwise you will never get that 3650 back in there...


Also if your helper suggests using the bellhousing bolts to force the input shaft to line up and pull the trans into place (popping it into place) don't do it, you can break something. My father kept trying to get me to do it that "old school" way last time we did the trans on the blue car.

Thanks for the tip. Was about to do the clutch right now. If I can get the clutch in myself then all my friend needs to help with again would be putting the trans back in.
