Today was the last day before a week off from my main employment, a much needed "stay-cation" after a heavy workload over winter and early spring, my body is aching. As a treat, I drove the Mustang to work! :rockon:

The drive home was splendid too, taking the back way home for a change. Normally, taking the back way lands me stuck behind some old farmer doing 20 kph under the limit. And normally, my Ranger is so underpowered that it's not all that wise to attempt overtaking. In the Mustang though, well, that's a different story! POWER! :like: The ultra short gearing in the pre-2018 MT-82's makes it so much more frenetic and suits the rev-happy nature of the Coyote more than the moonshot gearing the later MT-82's had.

All of that is making me get sad about saying goodby to this car soon. I wish I could keep it.

Arrrrrr😬😬😬😬attempted to undo the rear hub nut as the thrust washer is rooted..... fn nut was way to fn tight, no surprise there as the dealership last delt with this an no doubt over tightened the F####. Not sure what to do now... probably put it back together and have to get someone to fix it....I'm scared I will break something if I try to remove it. 😒

I'm worried about breaking something as I can feel the axle shaft thingamy jig moving round if that makes sense

If you can take the centre cap of rim and the socket will fit through the bore it will be a lot easier to undo with the wheel on the ground with full weight of car on it and handbrake on . Too much flex in suspension etc hanging in mid air to get sufficient torque .

Thanks for the tips I will give it a crack another day. For now I ended up saying F it and I put it back together. Leaving for another day 🤣.

Has anyone fitted a stubby antenna to their car. Have a 2016 convertible and want one preferably from a local supplier.
