Peeled the old dip off the roof, it was 2 years old and needed redone, while it was off I sanded down some spots where clear had peeled from the previous owner.

I also re did the decklid and lower bumper piece on the rear.

All of the places turned out nice and solid. Really helps to have a blow dryer handy to dry the dip between coats

If you notice my 3rd brake light on the termi spoiler is broken on both ends so that's something else on the fix list but it still works and new ones are like 240$ so I'll keep waiting lol it's been broken since I've had the car

Did you use a dip nozzle or regular? Ever consider vinyl? I'm getting local quotes for a entire metallic silver wrap on mine. My roof is in even worse condition but I nuked all the rust.

Dip nozzle, I ordered it from dip your car.

I decided I'm gonna just paint it this fall after the season and when she goes away for winter.

Probably just going to respray it silver

I really like the silver color so I don't wanna go too different.

I am going to tackle something on the front bumper that will be unique, pics to come on that

Lol autocorrect. I'd like to see some good pics of it in the light after you are done with the gloss if possible. I'd much rather spray on some dip than screw with crap getting under vinyl with me doing it in my garage. A pro wrap would be one thing but I dunno...

Hey Keeney what was your experience with ordering from MMR. I want to order a set of supercar followers from them. They have the best price I have been able to find on them.

I've got stuff from them before. Products are fine but I wouldn't let them build me anything motor wise.

I have been tossing around the idea to get them.
Any ways. Very good job Keeney! I can't wait to see more from you!

All for o2's I'm assuming it's wiring since its both at once, I had to extend them for headers. But they are soldered

That looks really good man. Now you need to get rid of your poorly fitting Mach 1 grill and plasti dip that as well. Don't worry mine is in the same boat but it's not worth plasti dipping. My bumper needs repainted along with the hood.
Maybe the O2 sensors are fouled?
It could be a possibility

Could you get some better pics of your roof? It looks like there is a little streaking at some angles and some angles not. I'm really considering doing the dip thing vs the vinyl just because it'll be easier and probably look better and will look like paint with the dip spray and glossifier.


Is dip ok to spray onto bare metal or no? I took down the rust spots on my roof in a few places to bare metal and smoothed them all out with sanding and if I was to spray it now it'd be totally good as long as the dip would adhere to it and protect it in the event I get caught in the rain.

Yes dip will be fine on bare metal, and it's raining so they will be garage pics but I'll take some, I'm going to try to spray the glossifier today if not tomorrow for sure!

This damn thing is driving me up a wall.

It ran so good when it was just done, but now when k get all those o2 codes it misses like crazy and I'll clear em and it runs decent then misses like crazy again after they come back. Plus the IAC issue is getting worse and I'm hearing some clanging in the suspension when I turn the wheel slow in parking lots

Dip looks good on your trunk, think you have inspired me to do the same to mine now, cheaper and smoother looking than the honeycomb overlay.

Im sure you will get her all ironed out soon. Im sure with the basically entire build you did there is a ton to go wrong and it seems like you have avoided all the big hurdles. Have you thought about taking it to a local dyno (reputable one of course), and have them take a crack at dialing it in and diagnosing it? I know prob not what you want to do since you already paid for a tune from MPT but maybe worth a shot? I cant offer any good advice as reading your thread daily I have learned a ton from you, lol. I really hope you get her straightened out soon as I cant even imagine the level of frustration after such a long, intense, meticulous build, to want to have it turn key running and enjoying it, with the biggest plan for the day is which car wash to use, ha.

Right?? And I think I'm gonna just datalog again with MPT and see if I can catch the miss on the log and see if they can't dial it in more, but I don't want to do that until I get the new IAC on. But it's just one thing at a time. I'm not in a rush per say just hate not being able to just jump in and go. But with the way it runs when it's not missing I know it's not a major mechanical issue, which is good.

When it's running right it runs great. This first oil change will show a lot when I cut open the oil filter

Something was telling me to get under and check the wiring to make sure it wasn't something simple.

So I climbed under and low and behold, this ground nut on the starter was very loose, which makes sense because sometimes it would start, sometimes it would click and sometimes nothing Click image for larger version

So the starter was simple, just tighten the bolt, however tomorrow I'm going to pull the o2 out and re extend the wires then tie it out of the way this time.

So with those two issues fixed that leaves 2 left, the IAC which I'm just going to throw that new motorcraft on, and secondly is a suspension issue in noticing.

When I'm in a parking lot and turning sharply while moving slowly, I think it's the steering shaft hitting my headers but not exactly sure. I'll get back under it tomorrow and check that out because it steers fine while driving so I'm not as concerned.

Also look what I had to do at work today lol

Good to hear it seems like its getting sorted. Always something stupid.

As for that Diesel... love how the cabs have to come off these days, I think some of the more complex stuff I've fixed on aircraft have still been less of a pain in the *** than that.

Also, looking at dipyourcar right now for some dip and a nozzle for my roof. How many cans do you think? 2 or 3? Glossifier too to make it look more like paint? How many cans of that? Spray trigger or just the can by itself? Sorry not trying to hijack but your roof looks pretty good and I'd rather dip mine than vinyl it.

Well I HIGHLY recommend drying the roof after each coat with a hair dryer in between coats. If you dry it like that 3 cans will be fine, probably 4-5 coats. First one 50% coverage then the rest spray on thick. I would use a step ladder that way you can get above it and make sure the path lf the can is straight and covers well. And 1-2 coats of glossifier or 1 can would be fine! But don't do a 50% coat with the glossifier, spray it heavy/wet

I had the same exact problem with the starter issue on my f250 6.0.
Loose ground wire. I was on the interstate and it stalled. I went to start it back up and it acted like it was hydro locked... I Pulled all the glow plugs and luckily it wasn't hydro locked. The starter just had a loose connection and it started right up after I tightened that nut. Anyhow,
Just bulletproofed it and I took the engine out through the front.. Definitely lifting the cab next time lol it's a good learning experience and not that bad of a job the way you got it setup haha.

So I rewired the o2's.


Still keep getting p0135 and p0155 popping up for the o2's..

Could they be fouled from the new motor? With the oil and assembly line exiting the exhaust and with the fuel trims being crazy until the tune was adjusted?

After a lot of reading I've found that Bosch o2's are apparently ****ty and factory style NTK brand is the way Togo so hopefully a switch in brand solves the issue

I've never had an issue with the Bosch's myself but who knows. They definitely could have been fouled up with a ton of fuel on them if you were pig rich.

I was lol 60lbers on a base start up tune lol

But I've also read hitachi is the same as motorcraft as far as the IAC valve so might go with that since it's cheaper

I believe hitachi are the OEM suppliers to ford. That's what I read on rockauto. I would also change the O2 sensors with the NTK brand. I've never had good experiences with bosch. Whether it be O2 sensors or spark plugs.

More awesome lucky news.. So the o2's are FINE!!

When the wires melted to the header it shorted the heater circuit which blew fuse f2.8 in the central junction box under the driver kick panel.

Replaced the fuse and no more issues, drives fine!

So now it's just a matter of the IAC coming in and installing that, then get in touch with MPT for the final tune adjustments!

Got about 100 miles on her now so 100 more and I'll be changing the oil and cracking the filter open
