Looks good man, did you run the 305s all around or just in the back?

Also, need to meet up one of these days, stretch the legs...
305/30/20 out back and a 255/35/20 up front .......the stagger keeps the diameter / revs per mile really close .

If I ever get that way I'll send a shout out , do the same if you ever get in the valley

this is interesting because I plan on lowering mine to close some wheel gap once I upgrade to shorter tires. Explain more? And which lowering springs did you go with.
Ford Performance. The ones for magneride. Drop is 0.78 ea corner. Car looked fantastic. On rough roads, crossing rr tracks, dips in the road, your lower back knew it. The magnetic fluid would get very hard so there was less give on rough pavement. I have lower back issues so the springs had to go.

Was that the kit with the sway bars and the flash for the MR ECU ?

Got the Mustang safety inspected (good for 2 years,). The rear tires were down to the 2mm limit but the mechanic passed it anyway! laying it up for the winter in a month and planning on changing wheels and tires anyway.

A week before my 4-Day weekend, COVID knocked on my door. Fully Vaccinated, but much better off during this ordeal. After a couple of days, I was feeling great, had lots of energy, but like an aftershock, my energy was completely zapped. So I spent that 4-day weekend on the couch. Had I attempted to touch the car, I would have been in the emergency room.

Blood Pressure normalizing, heart rate dropping back to normal numbers, there was no way I was going to sit on the couch this weekend. So I made a compromise. Paint correct the Front-half of the car. Next weekend, do the other half.

Two polishers, Meguires Compound, and Rupes Yellow Pads. This combination had the best cut with less haze.

Tomorrow I'll polish and add Jescar Power Lock.

Next Spring is going to be a breeze considering how many defects were eliminated.

Pics are absolutely killer! What percent is your tint?
Thanks man sorry it took me so long to reply but I actually don’t know the tint percent. I bought it with it on there but as far as I know since I got it in Texas it’s legal, and never been pulled over in it there or here in Arizona either.

Thanks. Polished by hand. Only took about an hour. This is second layer since I detailed in August. That was the initial wash, clay, wash and polish routine. Takes a bit more time.

Finally painted my Brembo calipers ahead of the GTPP brake upgrade. Took about 5 hours from pulling the cars out of the garage to cleaning up the spray gun. Was worried I would run out of paint but the G2 kit had just enough and it did finally lay down smooth. Glad I waited for a 70* day…. Now to get everything installed!
