  1. Is high temp paint necessary on coil covers?

    Had mine plastidipped black for years. I may have gone too thin spraying it (first time doing it years ago) as it came off in small pieces and needed a little thinner in spots to melt it off, but it came right off eventually. They cant get that hot then
  2. Steering wheel options; I can't decide

    Not an Alcantara fan, it gets all the gunk and oils from your hands matted into it like a towel would. The Beith stuff is nice, but not for $700-900. To rich for my blood when my car is 5 years old already and who knows how long before I upgrade it. The CJs leather honeslty looks nice to me...
  3. First Oil Change?

    2 months/2700 miles is nothing. The factory fill is good to 7500 miles or 1 year (as is every change at least using the OEM filter and 5W20 Motorcraft blend). When the oil % in settings says maybe 5-10% remaining. There is zero reason to go shorter than the people who made the car say. If...
  4. How much you think the 2019 shellby gt 500 go for?

    Remember the 2014 GT500 only had a base price of $55,445 officially. It was a lot of hp at 662hp for $55k starting price. A sub $70k MSRP base price would not be out of bounds at all. With the 350R MSRP at $61,295 I can completely see it advertised starting in the high 60s. Probably get into...
  5. Mod friendly dealers in SFL

    Most dealerships wont care about the mods you have listed. Suspension maybe, but only if you had a suspension specific related issue. Much more likely than not the exhaust wont care as its an incredibly common mod and a catback ha little relation to anything else failing. Definitely not wheels...
  6. Mr Bodykit GT350 style front conversion.

    I would've picked up a 350 is a second if it was offered in auto. Driving a stick, let alone a high revving manual, is not fun for a daily driver in traffic and only car. It only looks like a GT350 to the totally uneducated eye. The public's stupidity isn't OP's fault. It's incredibly easy...
  7. Tinting lights legality in NC

    Google the laws; tinting lights is not legal in most states. People likely take them off for inspection and reapply. Most are teenagers and dont get the ramifications or dont care. But get in an accident, especially at night, be prepared to explain that one to your insurance company when they...
  8. 2018 Mustang Performance Package Level 2 (PP2) "Tremor Package" Contents Revealed

    I was going to say everywhere else is reporting 19x10.5 and 19x11 with 305 Cup 2s as the wheels. Same as the 350, so I would guess the suspension tweaks are as well. Edit* as is Ford now...
  9. Paint Protection Poll

    Neither does ceramic coating, that's a myth, so dont feel bad; at least you're up $$$$. Watch a few Youtube detail videos and buy yourself a DA polisher kit that comes with some pads and buy compound/polish for $200 or so all in. Fix that up many times over for a lot less than paying for a...
  10. 2017 GT Premium PP - No Heat Extractor Vents - Normal?

    I have HUGE doubts those tiny vents have more to do with cooling than aesthetics. They probably let a tiny bit of heat out. More likely escapes from the air flow from around and under the engine than above being let out those tiny slits. After all, the Eco has a turbo which turbos run very...
  11. how bad do s550's get rock chips on long trips

    2nd the Colgan. Best $160 ever spent and after the first time its on or off in 5 minutes.
  12. Check out my baby beading water like a duck. CQUARTZ ftw!

    The odds of the headlights yellowing are slim to none unless you are keeping the car serious long term or don't take care of it properly. It takes years for that to happen. And even so you can polish them; Meguiars and others make a polishing kit for $20 or less. Or if you already polish your...
  13. Check out my baby beading water like a duck. CQUARTZ ftw!

    Depends on your view. If you scratch the coating, which it will eventually on a daily driver no matter what anyone says, it is a LOT more work and money to correct.
  14. Check out my baby beading water like a duck. CQUARTZ ftw!

    If you're correcting the paint every time you apply sealant or wax (wax about every month or 2, sealant about 6) you will have no paint (clear) left after a few years! It is not realistic to keep a daily driver flawless 100% of the time; wax, sealant, or coatings (despite the force field the...
  15. New guy buying something tomorrow

    The rear stock GT letters badge looks out of place and horrible? Most owners agree with this. The faux gas cap emblem on the rear on the S197 was a much better rear emblem. There arent a whole lot of choices being made exactly either other than going badgeless, but then the haters would say...
  16. Check out my baby beading water like a duck. CQUARTZ ftw!

    Yes and have been detailing cars, polishing etc. I've heard all the claims, yet seen no one PROVE by actual scientific tests that the 1-2 microns do anything more than a sealant/wax. All of these multi-million dollar product companies and none can show a scientific test of their claims and...
  17. New guy buying something tomorrow

    Putting on wheels with the same design is now "posing?":rolleyes: It's still a GT350. You must hate the howler GT badges that vaguely resemble the 350s then and all of the other "poser GT30" resembling parts. You must really like to sniff your own smug
  18. Check out my baby beading water like a duck. CQUARTZ ftw!

    Per application yup. Bottle is $30 for 16oz. Only need reapply every 6 months. Haven't even used half of bottle up in 3 years of ownership now. You should not be using that much at all if applied correctly and thin, maybe half an ounce. Unrelated to this thread, IMO coatings are a...
  19. New guy buying something tomorrow

    Not saying make it into an R. But the rear seat delete from FRRP is $800 and some replica project 6G R wheels are a few thousand with tires if you want that look and save $10k even if you sent 7 grand on upgrades.
  20. New guy buying something tomorrow

    $1k over on the regular 350 isn't THAT bad a deal. Everyone has now heard of the short run for 2018 announced by Ford, so expect a small rush on them with people expecting the 350 line to end as we know it, and on lot stock to be less flexible with price. It's just supply and demand...
