On my way to Cars and Coffee this morning in Hunt Valley, Md. and they had a section of the highway torn up for re-paving. It uncovered some huge potholes in the left lane, so I did this:

Sure hate to see this. I had the same thing happen to me when I had my '18.

I pulled the oil neck off since I'm no longer running the cover. Much better
What have you guys done with the stud for the engine cover? Does it come out easily?
You can see it there at the top of the picture. I wouldn't mind not seeing that

I used these to cover up studs.

it's fixable at least without replacing the wheel

"Luckily" a few months ago I hit a similar pothole on Route 1 in Pennsylvania and actually cracked the barrel of the drivers side front. These are KMC 20's and they don't make them anymore. After searching forums, marketplace, eBay, etc., I found a set locally at a place called No Limit, interestingly also on Route 1 in Baltimore. They wouldn't sell me just 1 though, because KMC doesn't make them anymore, so what good would having 3 rims, 1 eight inch and 2 ten inch do them? So they made me buy all 4, ($1300) so I have 1 spare front and 2 spare rears. Life is funny like that.

Cleaned her up, then applied hybrid ceramic.

That is some shine. Looks great. What is a hybrid ceramic? I still do old school carnauba waxes and they seem to shine well too. Just wondering what the difference is.

That looks awesome!! :like: :clap:
I suspect now's the time to get them. Ford and FP have a history of sometimes underpricing (or should I say under-gouging) new offerings.

I picked up a GT350R steering wheel for $140 new retail. Wasn't long until they doubled or more the MSRP for the wheel. Same deal when Ford finally offered a spare tire kit in 2012. I paid retail $112, I think. Check what they go for now. I think something similar with the GT350 center gauges.

Someone at Ford will notice they figured on selling x sets of Ice White tails in a year and notice they have that many orders in a month. Ka-Ching, up goes the prices. The current price for these from FP is around half price for the stock red ones from Ford parts. I jokingly said some people won't buy these at the current price from fear people will think they broke their red lights and could only afford to replace them with these Ice Whites!
