Installed my replacement GT350 shift knob from americanmuscle.com. They (mostly) sent me a replacement.

The first one I bought, the metal plate with the gear pattern in it came lose, flopping around. When I changed it out, I discovered that that metal plate is screwed on, and all it needed was to be tightened.

So....now I have two GT350 shift knobs.

Sunday was my 70th birthday. I received ordered radiator extension covers from American Muscle. Today I installed them.
I really like the clean look.
Have a great evening! Dave

I really like those, and want to get them for my vehicle. I went to their website and could not find them anywhere on their website. Do you happen to have a part # I might be able to look up? Thanks.

Took my convertible on for two open recalls. The door latch is being fixed now, but they said that the wiring harness repair kit from Ford is backordered by a couple months.

Harbor Freight is my friend.

The flex shaft locks down rigid once you position the dial.
I was thinking it might also measure driveshaft runout, too.
It will also do that, just need to find something to clamp it on to. I would recommend getting a magnet mount, however, for that purpose. There may not always be somewhere to clamp to near the driveshaft.

Independence Pass has so many that many people prefer to close their eyes and enjoy being passengers. I love the sights driving it and Columbine. I don't like being a passenger. Over 12,000 ft at the summit and.....................no guard rails, so stay in your lane.

whats switchbacks?

Today I looked a little less fondly at my Mustang, as I authorized the single most expensive repair I've ever had on a car. My steering angle sensor and right rear speed sensor went bad and the former requires the steering gear to be replaced. All in, I'm looking at a bill north of $3k. πŸ™ƒ

Ouch!

What is a steering gear? Part of the steering rack?

Don't know the labor or part cost but how much would a salvage yard rack cost?

Yeeesh. I've bought the Ford Warranty on the last two. 100k miles and $100 deductible.

Ordered a Borla cat back system.
I absolutely love my borla system. Hands down the best exhaust for these cars.

The carbon fiber tips look incredible too. No matter which finish you got for the tips, it'll give it a good pop aesthetically. Maybe throw some high temp ceramic coating on the tips.
