The look good, but the photos probably don't do 'em justice.

I like it!

I think it's safe to put the quarter scoops up on the market.

As for the SHR louvers, . Leak or not, they have failed to meet my expectations (Yes, I have seen them in person too). Nice concept, maybe if it were made with real OEM grade glass, I'd consider them.

I think it looks pretty good. Like Tom said...if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Much better Daryl. Still getting rid of the side scoops at some point?

I think they look awesome in person. Not being OEM glass doesn't bother me at all... Another example that just boils down to personal opinion.

I'm not debating whether they look 'awesome', they do!

I'm just not keen on replacing good ol' fashion heavy duty glass with plastic. Just feels like a step backwards.

They are made from dark-tinted polycarbonate (the same thickness as the OE glass), and they also have UV inhibitors in the material.

Kinda wish I had coupe so I could buy them!

Well, not really... but definitely would get them if I did have a coupe...

That all sounds pretty fancy, but the bottom line is that they're of plastic material. Don't get me wrong, it may be pretty strong stuff. Heck, my Glock is made from plastic!

What I like about the stick-on louvers is that if you change your mind about them (like Daryl), it's much easier to pop them off rather than swapping the entire quarter window back in.

Kind of like not being able to swap our hoods back to stock!

Looks good Daryl, not as busy. I like the clears up front like you have as well... sorta ties in all the lights so they look the same.
WOW! I've been gone 2 days and only 2 pages behind... And Bill still hasn't reached 4,000 posts!

I'm up here in Massychewsee-its. Man this place has more police than you can shake a stick at! Glad I don't have the stang with me! I would need more than a radar detector to keep me ticket free!

It's no secret now...

Next Monday, the Ford Racing 4.10's are going in.

Swanson Performance in Torrance will have the honors for the install.

And yes, it's the 'M4209-G410A' gears, not the 'M', which are made by Motive. I saw and touched the brand new box myself.

I'm also getting the FRPP Axle Girdle installed at the same time.

I'm providing my own gear oil, Mobil 1 75w140. The rest they have or are ordering.

I can live with the price. $650 for the gear install, incl parts. Another 2 for the girdle. Yeah, that darn girdle is expensive and no one will probably see it, but what the heck.

Awesome. Can't wait to experience the kick of 4:10's in person.

When you live up this way (I am only 8 miles from the Mass. border), you have to get a feel for where they hide.
My city in NH is even worse. We had saying growing up,"where there's one, there's two."
On the other hand, in my town when a real crime is committed they usually catch the criminals.

Steeda front Ultralites being installed as we speak. I told the guy that everyone that had these said no camber bolts were needed. He has his doubts I told him toe will need adjusting. Also having Mobil 1 put in for 1st time I was unaware though that once you put in full synthetic,you can never go back to regular oil. anything I should tell guy when I go to pick it up?(so he knows that he can't pull a fast one on me)

Oh yeah THIS IS MY 3000th post!
