    Hey M6G!

    Having had this car for a bit over a year now I figured I'd start a progress journal. The Mustang isn’t my daily it's more for weekend road trips, the occasional spirited drive on the awesome backroads we have here in California and hard parking, now on to the part list and pics. Hope you enjoy the progress of my money pit.

    Looks very cool!! I just got mine this last weekend, and really enjoying it. I'm not looking to track it, but want to do some cool cosmetics to make it my own. A few questions if you don't mind....

    How did you get the honeycomb look on the tail lights?

    I see you said that shifter is a lot better than stock. Still feeling that way after using it for a bit? I haven't changed emblems on a car in a long time.

    Is it still heating it up to remove them? Is it the same for the front emblem insert?


    Thanks

    HoneyComb overlays are from StangMods and can be found here : HoneyComb

    Yes the Steeda TRI-Axe is 10000x better than stock, I don't see myself going back to stock. Throws are shorter and more precise there's no slop in the shifter and throws into the gates are crisp.

    As for the emblems the side 5.0 are held in with 3m automotive tape and two pins. So yes, some heat, fishing line, a little patience and some goo gone or wd40 to remove any adhesive residue. The font pony is held in by pins abs washer locks you can either break the pins off or remove the bumper and try and remove them. I believe CJ Ponyparts has a how to video on it.
