With the number of crappy dealers I read about on here I wouldn't be surprised.

That's what I'm thinking. The only reason I didn't flat out say anything, is because it's really more of just a roughness to the paint, feels like bubbles on it. The way they described it, that makes sense. We'll see. I'm far from warranty being up, so I can keep at this a while and wear them down if I need to and the "fixes" don't work.

Practically the entire car, really noticeable on the top, like the hood, roof, and trunk. Feels like sandpaper, and in sunlight, washed, clearly seen.

Update: Got a call this morning, they are working on it now and the over spray seems to be coming off. They haven't gotten to the hood yet as of the update, which is the worst part of the problem.

Just got done with the clay bar, but the inspector went home (I need the state inspection done) and they are doing that in the morning. Should be picking it up by 1 tomorrow. Heavily strutinizing the car and checking for anything wrong before I leave.

Update: Picked the car up today finally. Feels much better, smooth for once, and even looks a little better. Got state inspection done as well.

What do you mean "looks a little better"? If it doesn't look how it should then you probably need to get them to do the repaint.

I probably didn't use the best wording. It looked very good before, with maybe slight bumps from the over spray, but you could really feel it more than anything. Looks even better now. It was hard to see in the first place.

Not yet. Really been stalling on that... also because the weather here is unpredictable

Hey mustangz I couldn't see your whole bio on my phone but you saved money since fourth grade for your Mustang?

I'd shake your hand, sir.

Sweet. You don't need a lift dude. Just some jack stands or some ramps will do the job

Haha, I saw that setup just sell on ebay and I thought someone got a steal considering one sold a week ago on ebay for $681. Anyway I just installed this setup. Backed up on some ramps and jacked up the front.

As a note the cat / h pipe clamps are a bit tricky since the bolt is close to the floorpan. A 5.5mm socket fits on the back side of the bolt for fast removal.

Torque specs are here if you need them:

I was worried! I saw 11 people were watching it and 2 people bid it up from 200 to 400. My max I entered was 600! With the coupon, all total, shipped is about $460. I couldnt believe it wasnt going for higher though. I've seen these usually go for $600-$1000.

Thanks for the specs too.

Well, after a slight problem, the package arrived at the house. I won't be there until the weekend, because of classes.

Just got home and opened the package. It's missing the connecting flanges.

Anyone know what to do to fix this? Accidentally rolled onto and off a high curb in the school parking garage.

Should just pop back in. Push on the bumper right where it meets the fender. There are only a few 7mm bolts in the inner fender area that hold it.

Forgot to add, I think that it's pushed in slightly where it meets the headlight. Would just pushing the fender fix that too?

Looks like when you take the whole bumper off, like ox said, should just push right in.

The bumper basically just sits on the inner bumper filler and secures with a handful of screws across the bottom of the splash pan, the few in the inner fender, and a few on the top under the radiator cover. So I would just pull on it down on the bottom front away from the car and put some pressure on the part where the fender and bumper clip together.
