    Any loose ends to tie up, or big projects to finish before Mustang Week comes up upon us?

    I just have to do some (hopefully) small things:
    1. inner tie rod ends
    2. new headlights & adjust header panel
    3. button up my rear bumper foam, something back there rattles sometimes
    4. fix my cruise control. I hope this doesn't turn into a big deal.

    I did a lot over the winter.

    Painted timing cover, all the brackets, replaced all the inner pullies and tensioners, new belts, wire tucked the engine bay, PC and hydrodipped calipers, rebuilt calipers, painted and hydro dipped valve covers, custom fog bezels and grill, and ordered new wheels.

    Haha what didn't I do over the winter to get ready..... Built a forged short block for my car and installed it. Completely replaced my turbo kit with a different style. Just IRS swapped it again with one that wasn't bent. My re-tune is tomorrow morning. Still need to button up some wiring and cleaning up all the install, and rebuilding the rear seat delete/subwoofer box. Should be ready to go.....

    Just finished last weekend taking the coil overs off and switching the tubular a arms out on my car for AJE units with coil spring pockets and went back with a set of H&R lowering springs with new Tokico shocks and struts, bump steer kit, new gold irritate cross drilled slotted rotors, and repainting my calipers and brackets.
    Tomorrow I'm jumping on pulling the valve covers off to replace with a set of Hydro Dipped ones I had done in a Cobra snake skin pattern, and install my JLT high boost CAI, that was hydro dipped in Cobra snake skin also, and the C&L 95mm MAF meter. Gonna go ahead and service her tomorrow too with a oil change back with Royal purple. Then just gotta do a little detailing, polishing and cleaning to get her ready for the trip!

    ^Nice. I'll keep an eye out for your dipped VC's. I dipped mine over the winter myself with a silver CF over Oxford White. :rockon:

    Pulled off the Mystichrome vinyl stripes on the hood and the rear bumper letters. Will be installing new replacements in a bit of a patriotic theme. Repainted the heat exchanger on Friday. Installed some custom build plates too.

    Few more little things to get done and then give her a good, thorough cleaning.

    Here is a stripeless pic of her that I took on Saturday.

    Yeah man look me up down there. I'm going down on Monday the 13th and will be there til the 19th.
    How are your calipers holding up hydro dipped? I wanted to do mine bad but the guy who did my valve covers for me said that it wouldn't hold up under the heat and temp that a caliper gets. Just curious how yours is holding up and how long they have been on there since you dipped them.

    I had to pull my ProCharger D1-SC off and send it back to ProCharger for a rebuild. A seal had obviously gone bad and it needed seals and bearings. The blower will be back sometime next week and I'll get it back on. I'm also installing a mini-race bypass valve while I've got blower plumbing loose. Other than that.... new belt, oil change, and make it look like I don't neglect it.

    I'll be down Saturday to Saturday. I did them at the beginning of the year, I have a few hundred miles on them. Look as good as the day I finished them.

    Hell yea, me too. 16 days and I'll be on my way down.

    I just got done doing new struts, shocks, springs, tie rods, and ball joints....needs cleaned BADLY but will be ready. So stoked to be returning after last minute having to pull out last year.
