Went to Cars and Coffee. A decent turn out. Glad I got my rims on in time.

Changed the oil. M1 5w30 with Napa Platinum filter. ~5300 miles on oil and I'm sending in a sample for testing. Too bad Mobil does have any rebates this year for this oil. Normally I'd get $20 back.

My Dad got to see it for the first time, he’s 68, took him for a quick ride; some twisties and wide open stretches. Smiles all around!

Drug it 500 miles..... No issues on or off the carrier with a little help from some 2x8's. I'm also 1" lower from factory Bullitt ride height. :clap:

Like the center caps on the Bullitt wheels. Never noticed that before. Cool.

Pretty sure those are aftermarket. Mine have the standard Pony. But I agree they look great and I'd love to know where they are from!

Edit: Looks like 5Spurs?

Cut the wings off of the ridiculous engine cover.
Still waiting for a company to recognise the gaping hole in the market for something similar in various different finishes. A lot of stuff is offered to billet the engine bay to death, but nothing for a cover that almost every owner of an '18 and newer car would be interested in.
Do these companies ever read the forums?

To be objective, there's maybe a few thousand people that care about the engine cover on their 5.0 So any company considering creating such a product has a pretty small market.

And reading forums would give a false impression of demand.

I used to think the same thing, but there are plenty of offerings for gen 2 engines.

Installed the "leather" wrapped OEM center console top with silver stitching that I found on eBay. I also got the OEM shift boot to match it. So now I have the entire upgraded center console in my base GT (I have the leather knee pads that you can kind of see and I also got the arm rest with the silver stitching). I found the part on eBay for a fraction of the cost of new. So those along with my katzkin seats and the PP gauges I installed my interior is about finished. I still have the base radio but to be honest I don't really care. I don't really listen to it all that much anyway. I still have the analog cluster too. I have no intention of swapping it to the digital, I like the analog better.

I ended up with some extra parts that I'll be listing for sale (some parts came bundled after I have already bought some individually, oh well).

I'm sure some will ask why I didn't get the pieces with the red stitching, especially since I have red seats. I considered it, but the silver was cheaper, easier to find and I think it looks great. Plus I can always dye the stitching red at a later date :wink:

sharpie red.. get a pack of the dual tip fine and ultra fine… take your time and it will turn out great… it maybe be a little darker than your seats. I did mine and it is hold up great.

Ive seen the sharpie method and the fabric pen. I like the sharpie method because it just soaks in vs having to color it with the fabric pen. Makes for much less mess.
Thanks for sharing, it looks great
