    Absolutely phenomenal car... The handling is superb, and it honestly doesn't feel like you're driving a Mustang. It's worlds different from my 2013 GT. The gear box is great, the tires are awesome, and I can't wait to drive it again. This car definitely feels special.

    The stripes will be removed soon, and I'll be doing a full workup with a coating at the end.

    Thanks for the kind words, everyone. This Ruby is an amazing color, and it'll look even better once I get the paint corrected.

    I just ordered jack pads, front rock guards, hood prop, UPR Passenger Catch can and some LEDs to start.

    I don't think I can keep the stripes... too much of a pain to keep looking right, and I love the look of the car without them. I don't mind them, but I think my OCD will eventually win over.

    Your car is beautiful, and another vote to keep the stripes, or have them painted on as they should be. I just bought a Kona Blue with black stripes (pictures posting in the next couple days), and I think the black stripes make the car looks so mean.

    Just out of curiosity, did you get the handling package with this car, or if not, did you find a Gurney Flap was shipped complementary with it? My car never had the handling package, but I did get a free Gurney Flap, which was a very nice surprise. My car is chassis #K0195, so I am curious if it is an early model thing, or something they are doing on a lot of vehicles. fullsizeoutput_83b.jpeg fullsizeoutput_83a.jpeg

    I completely agree with you on the stripes. I searched for a Ruby Red with no stripes and it is sitting in the rail yard waiting to be delivered to the dealer. I have always been one who goes against the flow.

    It sounds like you did the same thing I did... watched the entire Matt Moreman series of GT350 videos on Obsessed Garage while waiting for the arrival of the new car.
    I am going to ignore, to the best of my ability, any scratches that might be visible in the stripe material. I want to leave them on. I did however order white stripes, so I'm hoping any scratches on the stripes are not as noticeable.
    I am going to seriously try to get the paint "dialed in"... but I have no where the experience that Matt has. I do have the patience though.
    Enjoy the long awaited prize...!!!!

    Great Choice!! This was my 2017 that I stupidly got rid of but I do have a 2019 GT350 on order in Ruby Red to make up for it so I am super excited to get the car especially since this is the last year for Ruby! The color explodes in the sun and is absolutely beautiful! Can't wait to get mine....good luck with yours!!!!!!

    Great combo! That's the exact combo I'm looking to get. Love the way the ruby looks in the sun.

    The ford vinyl is crap, it will show scratches after some washes, I had my redone cause I couldn’t look at them anymore.

    Congrats ! Very nice colour. That was my first choice, until the sales guy waffled on me with the "Someone mom put a deposit on it right before you showed up with the check to pay for it" move. !??!??! Was a blessing in disguised as I picked up my second colour with 4 miles on the clock.

    So as I always say to new owners,

    Let the mods.......BEGIN ! (also i like the stripes)

    Yes, I got the handling package. I don't have the camber plates, yet. I'm still trying to track those down with the dealership.

    I watched his videos on the GT350 long ago, but I did revisit when I threw the deposit down on this car. I detail as a hobby, and have been for the last ten years or so. I'll pull these stripes off with the aid of my steamer, and then I'll do a full paint correction and ceramic coating on the car. I'll try and document the process to post on here, but that's if I have enough patience to wait on my shop to be complete.

    It's not hard to learn, and you could start on any DA polisher and would be hard pressed to mess anything up. Matt is a good resource to learn from, and there are many others spreading the word about this therapeutic craft.

    Congrats to you as well! I didn't realize this was the last year for Ruby until the order guide came out.

    I definitely feel like I made the right choice this time.

    Thanks!

    Yes, 2019 has only one for some reason. I guess to offset load for the GT500?

    It is complete crap... the Magnetic portion looks to be very nice, but the vinyl is very soft and easy to scratch. It's already driving me crazy.
