I'm sure Jed will post his images later, here's a few of mine...



Nice picts Ray!

great pics, as always...


Mustang mods...
Going to take the car to the body shop to finish the stripes on the bumper... easier said than done because the std BSM stripes are at least 1 inch wider than the stripes on the car 100 bucks later and I'll let you know how it went...

Which leads me to the second mod. Stupid woman that parks next to me parked like a retard. So trying to park away from her so I don't door ding her or my car getting outta the car caused me to loose focus and put a nice scrape of white paint from the pole on the pass. side rear wheel well. About 6 in maybe 10 in length. I didn't have the radio loud so I heard it right away and I think, OK, I hope and pray that it's something that can be buffed out. Since anything other than detail spray is at mom and dad's there isn't crap I can do about it tonight. With luck the body shop guy doesn't hand me a jar of vaseline with the bill. The very brief look I took at it, if I looked any longer at it the angier I would have gotten, leads me to think that mostly there is no part of the panel pushed in.. I hope. Maybe just maybe it can be "buffed out" but I hold no expectations.

Sorry to hear about the bad incident but I'm glad you got it fixed it up pretty good!

Happy with the paint guy? I need to keep tabs on who's who in paint so I know where to go for the future scoops and spoiler delete

As soon as I get new shocks The shocks are shot now, I just need to save up some pennies but I'll let you know as soon as I can. I really think you'll win by a lot but I'm still curious how the little 2-valve stacks up against the Hemi

Thank you for all the help Jed The SN95* looks a thousand times better and a whole lot newer

This method is tried and true, just requires a lot of elbow grease and patience

*I still haven't named the car yet ; its running around a nameless bastard

Brian car looks great glad that thing bluffed out.
Bill did u ever get under ur car to find that little rattle?
Luis those worn out shocks can work for you like a drag shock
I doubt I will hook up with my 225s tires
My best run stock was a 8.7 with a 1.9 60ft I doubt I can replicate that.
Don't doubt ur 2v I. Had a friend that ran low 8s on his bolted up gt it was auto also
