  1. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    My town in Northwest Ohio seems to have given up on plowing except the main streets the past several years and just salts everything . I daily drive my Mustangs year 'round and my 2006, which I had for almost 10 years, showed no signs of rust when I traded it in. I did not get any rust...
  2. Convertible in a car wash?

    I'm sure someone with a jeweler's loupe will tell me that I'm wrong, but I run my convertible DD through a soft-cloth car wash 5 to 10 times per winter and I do not notice a pattern of scratches. I put Turtle Wax Hybrid Solutions Ceramic Spray Coating on my paint 2-3 times a year and it seems...
  3. Removable Front License Plate Bracket

    Ohio had already passed the legislation to get rid of the front plate requirement when my car's first owner bought it. He put a Craig's mount on. When front plates were no longer required, I took off the front plate frame. However, the mounting is so hard to see except from ground level that...
  4. Convertible in a car wash?

    No problems. See my previous post above. Good luck.
  5. Solid Black wheels will fade away!

    I tried to keep an open mind. I bought black wheels for my winter tire/wheel set up, while my other wheels are factory silver ones. It clearly depends on your car color, but I really look forward to spring and taking the black wheels off each year. On most colors, black wheels remind me of...
  6. Convertible in a car wash?

    I know you did not ask this, but I will tell you that I have never had any problems with the factory shorty antenna going through a soft-cloth car wash.
  7. i can’t be the only one who runs regular in a GT right?

    Here's a Car and Driver article on using higher octane fuel than required:
  8. Convertible in a car wash?

    I am, admittedly, a barbarian. In the cold months, I take my convertible through a soft-cloth car wash with no problems. I used to have them shut off the center blower because of the way it shook the rear window, but I not longer do that and I have not had any issues.
  9. i can’t be the only one who runs regular in a GT right?

    Car and Driver did a test within the last 2-3 years (?) on cars that could run on lower octane fuel and the performance gains by using premium were minimal. I had a Focus ST that required premium and, of course, I always used premium in it. If there are no timing clocks involved in what I'm...
  10. Anybody bored with their car?

    "When a man is tired of London he is tired of life." -- Samuel Johnson Perhaps the same can be said of being tired of a new Mach 1!
  11. Convertible top maintenance

    I suppose the same could be said about the car's paint, clear coat, etc., but many of us still put something on that we believe adds protection to those surfaces.
  12. Convertible top maintenance

    Not as much as warm sunshine does.
  13. Rear Glass Vibrations

    OP --"Helmholtz Resonance" ?
  14. Blank infotainment screen?

    That happened to me several months ago. I immediately called my dealer's service department. The service writer told me that something was probably updating, but I should come in if it persisted. In a little while, everything came back and has functioned normally to this day.
  15. What does your mustang smell like?

    With a convertible, it can always smell like the great outdoors, except when passing livestock haulers.
  16. Anyone order back mats? Thinking of Lloyd mats- what is the right color?

    I bought Race Red Lloyd's mats to give some color to my black interior in the warm months. In the cold months, I run WeatherTech black mats. If I had to do it again, I might consider gray WetherTechs. The black shows every bit of salt that I track in on them. As an aside, before I start...
  17. What does your mustang smell like?

    Mine smells like teen spirit. When I fire it up, I say, "Here I am now, entertain me," and it does.
  18. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    I didn't do anything to my Mustang today, but I decided that confession would be cleansing. I love this forum and seeing all of the great things that Mustang owners do with our cars to make them the way we like them. I pick up ideas here and there of things that I end up doing. That having...
  19. Favorite ONE mod that you have done.

    The very first thing I ordered was a dual-tone replacement horn for my '19. The car just felt so cheap with the factory horn. Best mods for a convertible -- smartTop module and the Audi windscreen..
  20. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Check and see if something updated. That happened to me a year or so ago. I called my dealer's service department and was told that something -- i cannot remember if it was Sync or what -- was probably updating, but that I should bring it in if it didn't all come back as usual. It did and...
