Drove her to work and got a nice quick photo session with the parking lot empty! Hopefully a transmission fluid change and a fuel filter swap after work today. Should've done these things a few weeks ago when I got the car, but you know how that goes...

What did you use to spray tint it? I purchased the vinyl tint from AM a few weeks ago and its holding up... it just isn't quite the oem look I was going for and I don't like the slit where the two pieces meet.

Everyone that has seen them likes them... they're light grey with a chrome lip. I'm more of a chrome guy! Ill post pics of b4 and after of my car and you guys tell me what you think.
Yeah let's see them. I like the way chrome lips look.

For 300 bucks to have backup rims with tires is a good deal. Just keep the cobras or sell those for like 700 bucks

Id love to find the same cobra wheels but new. When I got the car 8 years ago, every freaking rim was curbed. They look ok but blemished. I've never seen those cobra wheels for sale...ANYWHERE! I've thought about getting the chrome cobra r's from the mid to late 90's cobra... but they just don't appeal to me on my body style. I've.been told that the wheels on my car (the chrome cobras) were 2000 cobra wheels. If anyone knows where I can get some please let me know!

You can get cobra replicas on AmericanMuscle.Com I'm pretty sure. I could be wrong tho. Or did you want the ones above?

Am has 03 cobra replicas... and by replica I mean it has a ford stamp in the casting on the inside of a spoke. Love my gloss black replicas but god they're hard to keep clean.

I've done a little reading around the web, and that's all the experience I have regarding this. But it looks like you can take your wheels to a local body shop, or maybe a wheel and tire place, and for about $100-$125 per wheel you can have them refinished. That's something I'd look into if it were me in your situation. Probably a bit cheaper than buying new wheels. Or you can check out the wheels at American Muscle, I think they have some cobras.

Yesterday, a lady hit the back of my Mustang with her SUV.. no damage though. We were stopped at a red light, and she let off the brake pedal accidentally. scared the crap out of me but everything was fine.

Hopefully installing my new quad shocks today, but with this rain... doubt it.

Yesterday at work my mom came out and there was an escalade sitting on her bumper, so she pulled forward and there wasn't a mark on it. She's only had it for a few months, so it scared her.

Found out we will be on a watering ban here in Indiana. In Brownsburg, we are not allowed to wash our cars. We must use commercial car washes. My car does not roll through car washes! You WILL get scratches.

Drove around for a bit, got a thumbs down from a Foxbody driver because I wouldn't street-race at 12 at night. The dumb **** doesn't even realize that cops like that section of road we were on. On the bright side I finally got my throw-out bearing and Oil Pressure gauge in.
