Tested my 91 race tune today. I didn't know a tune could do so much. I used to shift into 2nd hard and spin a little, today when I shifted into second hard I spun out. Time for some control arms and better tires.

It scared me ****less because I went from the right side of the road to the left, then back to the right, then did about a 400 degree spin, slammed on the brakes just before I hit the curb on the left then stalled the car. Then the issue I've had with ignition kicked in and it took like 4 cranks to start (haven't figured out what the problem is yet). I then drove like a grandma the rest of today.

Thx monkey. My wife wanted to see the back without the stripes while still leaving them OTT before she'd let me pull them.

monkey, why did you decide to go with blue OTT stripes but not put them down the back?

What you guys think???? I prefer it this way up to the wing. The full stripe looks good but takes away from the deck

Got safety and emissions don't.. Cost $160..... Also asked if they have to visually check for cats and he said that they did and if you did not have them you would fail... I was hoping they didn't have to look....

Just pull up some pictures of the stock GT500 white w/ blue stripes. The dark stripes don't contrast enough with the black on the back. It really looks too busy. Even when the light is bright & the stripes reflect the light, it just look muddled back there.

The lighter stripes on the darker colored cars look great. Even the red on the white looks good.

Took all my wheels off so I could do some serious wheel dressing, detailing and caliper cleaning. And clay-barred my car. Waxing it tomorrow - it started raining today.

Thanks. Not sure whether to do mine yet or not. If so, it will be red.

There's a GT500 at a local Ford dealership that has blue stripes, but they are lighter than both of yours. I can't remember what year it is. I'll take some pics tomorrow, just for spits and giggles.
