No fun..We gotta do it

Well I got about 11 hours of blood,sweat and tears. But seriously 11 hours of doing some real detailing. Paint correction. Getting all those Halograms, fine scratches and everything that shows up on black cars when the sun is shining.
I would much perfer spending the hundreds I have on proper machine polisher, chemicals, tapes, clay, proper pads and man the list is endless, on some other much more fun mods. Hard telling what all I already had bought over the years. I got a couple more desired items like... 78.00 for wax! WTF! but it's the heat. Anyway, the past 2 weeks have been all about susp. mods; Yes again....there endless and redoing some and adding some. Now I am over half done with the detailing. I'm doing some appearance mods along the way that when finished I think will be different and look good. I got one done and like to know your opinions ??!? PLEASE!! Bare in mind that there is more subtle stuff to cordinate it all before it's over. Here, I have a few pics of it. No. LOL, it's Not HP but gotta show it some love ya know. It'll feel good when I do finally pull it out. Seems like there always faster after you feel you loved on it....LOL.

PS..... Has anybody ever bought the front lower CS w/ fogs from Tousley? I see it's like 192.00 the 28.00 for each left right fog. Not sure about if all one would need is included. Like....Harness,bulbs,hardware and etc. If anyone knows who is the cheapest besides LRS please inform me. I got a Good friend who I will be buying myself one from but I know a young kid who wants me to see if he can get one and he stocks shelves at Foodlion part time and lives with his Mom and Dad, so I know he has very little money.

looking good man! I dunno about the GB 5.0 badge right now, but long as you add some other GB accents to the outside I think it could work well. Looks a little by itself if you don't see the seats haha!

You know what you need for the interior? Just one small change, a GB shift knob from speeddawg.com

get rid of that silver shifter!

as for the CS valence, it literally is the valence itself and the foglights. The whole stock Ford kit the CS fogs just attach right to where the grill fogs did. So those will need to go, or he is going to be putting in more work and money to wire them in separately.

I haven't hand washed and waxed my car yet this year, waiting for it to get nicer out and stay nicer out before going through the trouble, but the first few times of doing it by hand my chest always aches after. I lift weights every week too and it doesn't prepare you for that...

yeah this is what I meant he should do, either full opposite of yours and do a blue ball with black stripes or like yours.

Either way would make his interior perfect.

Oh yeah....As I said it's a sneak peek of GB. There is more stuff coming. I think it's gonna be hot and haven't seen one like it. They badges turned out factory or paint shop quality. Got one more to do of them. I'm already on a shifter knob that is black/GB. I wanted to wait till I get a MGW in there first then get it. I'm gonna do my dash pieces like my console and radio surround. The quality is so impressive I gotta do it. Not ricey at all. Thanks for feedback bro! Yeah I know they will plug up to to the old grill fog harness, but wondering if anybody has bought all of it from Tousley. Another words everything one would get if he ordered from LRS and others. I know those are ready when it arrives.

You will never accomplish by hand what you will with proper equipment and stuff and your chest will not hurt. I'll never do any car by hand again!

number 18 of that list.

which is BOSS/CS Style Lower Front Fascia (10-12 GT) BR3Z-17626-AB - Free Shipping!

and no doesn't come with the fogs but the fog kit is near 100 dollars more than the non fog kit.

I saw this look a year ago.....There are only 2 things in that pic I have considered in conjunction with my other ideas. Nah.... You do not have to worry about mine looking like that. I like it but my direction is different altogether. It will like good man. Do IT dude!

That was the exact thing I was looking at tousley. Notice the fogs for it are 28.00 a piece which would be alot cheaper than the 344.00 to 349.00 they go for (totals) at the major places. Problem is I am sure there is stuff still needed if ordered like that. Like the harness and maybe lots of little sh*t.
But no, I do want the one with fogs. Cheapest I seen is LRS at 344.00 plus discount would be like 323.00 to door. I got a friend who will match that and I like to give my business to him. He's good dude.

@ NATEDOG158....Thanks man!

@ nosympathy....... Yeah man you gotta get that thing looking good bro. You know spring will be here soon and you gonna want to sport that ride sharp as possible. You gonna need clay, but you gonna need a "whole" bunch more of other stuff too , if you wanna get her right. I know you will man. You got alot done lately and it's looking good man!

@cheelyb09..........Thanks!

@BlackBetty5.0.......Get "all" the right stuff in man.The polisher will do stuff you "can't" do by hand. To do it right, and buy a put together list of proper stuff you will need to spend 300.00to 400.00, but that would include good machine too.So worth it!!
