Wish tint on the front wasn't illegal here and that cops didn't actually pull you over for it. Basically so they can see into the car during a stop... blah.

Yesterday I took first in a car show in the cat. 05-14 V6 Mustangs. My BIL took first in Modified 64-Present Mustangs. Then I drove home and got challenged on the road by someone in a MB SL-550 AMG.

What did you do with your Mustang today

Took it to church, then cruised for about 30-45mins. Went over to O'Reillys and ordered a weather tech molding for my trunk. Then back in neighbors garage, before the heat got bad.

That's pretty clean Jeno!

Picked up a GT hood today. It's white, but, it's Performance white and my car is Oxford white. Will have to have it painted. Love the heat extractors. Every little bit of cooling helps in the 100+ Vegas heat!

There is a surprisingly noticeable difference in those two colors

Added a few more mods, Thanks Late Model Restorations for a Great Deal!

Also did the Sound Tube Delete while I was under the hood, really cleans things up.

Yes. Won't be able to get by without painting it. The Ford dealership quoted $900 to paint it!

The 2 Ford dealerships in my area that I have contacted have quoted outrages figures. The other quote was something like $1500 for rear gear labor.

What did you do with your Mustang today

That's what happens when you take it to a rip off center, ah I mean dealership. Dealership, that's what I meant to say.

You are absolutely right. Will only go for warranty service and oil changes. Oh, and the airbag recall!

Switched from the 93 race tune to 93 performance to try it out. Still a HUGE improvement over stock, but I'll be switching back to the race tune - I prefer the touchy throttle response.

Sounds accurate enough. I mean they're not just a bit more expensive, they are crazy expensive. I realize their overhead may be higher, but their prices drive customers away.

I sent my custom tune request to Bama for my new tuner. Went with them because I get a decent discount though my work. Excited to see what it does for the stang once I get it.
