This is what i have.. LoJack Early Warning Recovery System

I think I paid around $800 for the whole thing including installation at the Dealer. Only PITA thing is that you have to keep replacing one of those watch/calculator battery in the key fob every 6 months or so.

You can't watch the install (on any LoJack) because they hide the brain module in some super uber secret location within the car... but I found it.

Awesome!

You're running out of speed mods left to do at an alarming rate!

With all that power, you'll need a set of BIG brakes to slow her down..

As funny is that is take it off. She might contaminate it with the losing ways of the Chiefs.

That was a good game yesterday. They need to stop winning games in the 4th quarter before they give me a heart attack.

I don't get the Cheese Head thing at all, but it does look funny!


On a Mustang note, I got some new stuff heading my way!

Nothing big, but I ordered the following stuff from MWAG;
Radiator cover w/prop hook delete (just released)
Radiator Extension Covers (with the $11 optional plug)
Fuse Box Cover

All color matched Torch Red.

I needed a change to break up all the OEM black plastic stuff in the engine bay, I hope this will do the trick.

So after all that "No Leo only the rad ext's should be painted." You go ahead and buy the painted rad cover and rad cover exts.



Now bite the bullet and be the first to get the SHR louvers.

I agree with you Leo, Bill needs to take his GQ to the next level and the SHR Louvers are a must. Hands down the best looking mod for louvers, anything else just doesn't stand up to them, IMHO.

Not entirely sold on the SHR quarter louvers. If they looked cool to me, you guys know that they'd be already installed (w/ a write-up ).

Well, what can I say.. you got me there Leo.


Quick Poll...
Getting a custom nameplate on the radiator cover (where the factory sticker would go in that rectangular inset).

This?? Attachment 35124

Or this?? Attachment 35125

I was JUST thinking about what to put in that sticker spot!!!

Where do you get those made?

I like the bottom one better. I would change the name, though.

I'm pretty sure you already know where my vote goes for the name plate.

Just in case though....I vote pony.

Where are you getting it made and how much? Will it actually fill in the whole sticker area?

I want, I want!

Forgot to mention that the finish is brushed aluminum. Pic in the poll just represents the tag layout (not white vs brushed).

Guy's name is Gary Loat. He's from the Mach 1 Forum.

Here's the info he gave me...
The engine bay tag is 2" x 4" and the interior console tag is 1 1/4" x 3 1/2". I don't have a weblink for these particular tags but it's basically the same info on the link here at the Mach1Registry for the Mach 1 ID tags: http://www.mach1registry.com/products/id_tags.htm

The tags are printed on 25 gauge brushed aluminum - the same as the Mach 1 tags.

That's 1 vote for the GT.

That's 1 vote for the Pony.



Keep in mind that it'll be placed against a TR background. My oil cap has the GT logo and my dipstick handle has the pony logo.
Guess this will be the tie breaker!

edit: Tag is 2" x 4".. who wants to go measure that rectangular inset to see what size it is?

How much? $22.50? Can you do a group order and then ship mine to me?

Brushed aluminum would look great...

He may, but I need to get the ball rolling on mine to get it before the Sunset show on the 18th. The guy is in Canada, who knows how long the shipping will take.

I'm leaning towards the pony logo only because there's a little 'red' in the tri-bar.

After looking at both tags......For some reason the GT one looks better. I think it has something to do with the font and layout. The fact that it's brushed as opposed to white doesn't hurt either.

Looks like the 'GT' is winning. Guess there's something alluring about the Blue Oval!
