So thats what the fuel pump grommets are supposed to look like :)

When the engineer came to fit my tracker last week, it was noted that they were present - but weren't actually fitted into the holes.

Have you fitted any dynomat or anything over the metal to help with noise reduction when doing the delete ?
I hadn't actually thought about sound proofing, might have to look into that.

The noise increase wasn't as much as I thought, although you do notice the weight loss driving it.

Daayum this insulation is as heavy as the seats I removed :shock:

Installed the red start button and OEM GT350 gear knob from CJ pony parts (even though they shafted me on import fees after I'd already paid for the postage that included them). Also finished the hardwiring and install on my Thinkware F800 Pro dash cam.

Thought I'd take some sound readings, probably should have done the base levels with the original seats in :facepalm:

It's also dba not db

Cold start, outside: 130dba
Idling, inside with windows up: 68dba
Accelerating, inside with windows up: 90dba
Motorway cruising at 70mph in 6th, inside with windows up: 70dba

Took the pony to an Airfield "track" day at car limits in Epping was great fun...

You'll have to excuse the video editing this is the best of my knowledge in editing haha and it's 18mins long... First part is high speed corner, then 2 different agility courses, then put together as a sprint circuit

All of the S550 blues have been great but those two are the best of them.

Agreed, they look good. But now it seems "antimatter blue" will become available for 2021. If it was available when I bought mine, I'd gotten it instead I think. Not seen it in real-life, but judging by the photos of other Ford cars with that colour, I think it looks magnificent.

Found this vent hanging out, which goes straight out under the car. No wonder I found so much gravel.

Got some Dynaliner to cover the Dynamat

Nice job. I found that soundproofing the spare tyre well makes it impossible to fit the 19 inch spare so I removed it from the verticals.
