Must be nice having FFW in March. We have it in the middle of the summer, during that good ol' Mid-Atlantic Triple H weather (Hazy, hot, and humid)

Of course, you can live in San Diego like Leo, and never worry about changing temps. Is it true that it's ALWAYS nice there. We only get a few months of NICE convertible weather. The rest of the time, it's either too hot or too cold

Thanks for the help
No prob!

Another method we use here is when someone asks multiple questions (like this post), we remove the start and end quote brackets and reply to each question with a different colored font.

* The rest, fend for yourself!

It's about time for your covers to arrive! No damage this time around?

I think MWAG is scrambling about the short bolt issue. Another example of why you need different test subjects before launching products.

I got my replacements yesterday, too (for the second time). Remember I sent them back because of the paint not matching?

They said they are behind on painting and that I probably won't have mine in time for FFW.

I remember you mentioning the soccer, but I thought you said in my on-going list that you were only going one day.

I hope the weather blows over because I'm planning on going all 3 days.

How's the paint match this time around? Better?

Behind on painting, huh? I think that's mostly true, although I still believe they're still working on that particular minor issue.

I'm truely amazed they got the plenum cover and mirror inserts 'spot on' on their first attempt. Since then, their batting average has been in the slump.

Yeah Dave, for sure!

Although I've been skipping lately, I usually attend my club's Drive-In on the 3rd Wednesday of each month, the Mustang Cafe, held at Ricky & Ronnie's in Torrance. It's open to everyone, no need to be a club member. It's just a place to hang out and shoot the poop.

Check PM.

Yup since I moved here in May I can count on my fingers how many times it's rained. Not only that but I can't recall it raining for an entire day. I love SD.

Nope no damage. They said they hand buffed these for me. I'm sure they did.

I just noticed you pulled the trigger on the louvers I'm surprised. Although something tells me your going to test fit them and decide against them.

Sorry I haven't even looked at the "Powered by Ford Emblem" yet. Once I get the camera I'll take a few pics to decide where it would look best if at all. Assuming I decide to keep it I'll give you some cash next time I see you.

Yeah no kidding, the forum dies for a day and I'm close to four pages behind...

A driveshaft is on my 'todo' list after the pullies. I just went on a mod binge and am waiting for everything to come in. I'm want to get one before summer though

Yeah, I know. I just put 500 miles on it since I dropped it and I was hopping to get a day off to do the alignment. I'm planning on calling your guy today or tomorrow. I haven't forgotten about the bolts.

I got the MWAG mirror covers last night I think I'll put 'em on tomorrow evening after I wash the car, gawd are the water spots from Thursday's little rain buggin the heck out of me. Once I do I'll post pics, but I think most of you know how they look.

Leo got a 'hand buff' job?

Why, thank you Leo, for the vote of confidence on my abilities of selecting mods.

I like cash! Nothing to trade though?

You didn't sound to sure about louvers when we talked on Saturday. Your going to think it's to "red" since you won't have the contrast of the black quarter window like you do no.

Hmm.....I've got last months issue of 5.0 Mustang and MuscleMustangs Fast Fords. Can't really think of anything else stang related that I could trade you.

It's on your 'all' list??
Didn't know you spoke Spanish.


Yeah, I know. I just put 500 miles on it since I dropped it and I was hopping to get a day off to do the alignment. I'm planning on calling your guy today or tomorrow. I haven't forgotten about the bolts.
That's cool. Just wondering if you decided to leave the alignment 'as is' and not sweat it, or just letting things settle before taking it in for any adjustments.

Install them correctly now..
