Re: Just my luck 2

I think it looks great.The gap looks fine to me.I can see lowering some but it's not as bad as you are feeling.I am going with the same wheels.Only b/c I found out they have them in 19's.Front 8.5" rear 10" .Think it will be a while.I have spent money lately that I did not really have.Ever done that? LOL! P.S. Lugs set it off man!! Good call

I think you're both drunk FRPP K springs seem mandatory at this point.

Just out of curiosity, what are the specs on the tires?

Re: Just my luck 2

Love the new shoes, did you paint the lug nuts? If so, did you use the stock or order new ones and paint those? What was your process for painting them?

Nice...I have black ones on mine, and the paint is chipping on them as well. I might have to find some yellow ones for mine. It is a nice touch...

If you find some reds let me know where you get them. I'm looking for yellow.

Re: Just my luck 2

I know you brought up lug nuts, and I have been driving myself nuts looking for the right color for my Pony. This by far is the best site I have found. I'm ordering one lug nut of the Blackworks Racing gold lug nut to see which best matches the yellow on my pony.. Just thought I would share the link.

10-up Ford Mustang Lug Nuts at Andy's Auto Sport

Disregard this site, until I find out why they just raped of over $31 on S&H for two lug nuts. Hopefully it is just an error.

Welcome to my world.... I get RAPED on shipping all the time. I dont think businesses are aware that the APO is in New York... not Germany. They only need ship USPS freight or priority (depending on the size) to New York and the 'Tary brings it over for me.

Lug sets...
$107 for 17 (for 4 lug wheels)
$130 for 21 (for 5 lug wheels)
Then sets of 4 for $24...

So it actually looks like you get a better deal ordering 5 sets of 4. Only $120.
