I might do a hood strut but otherwise I’m really happy with this car as is. And the sound is intoxicating!
Not really a downside. Just means that the car is a perfect fit!

I agree with the hood struts, that should be something Ford puts on all of them. Might look into adding an Oil Catch Can/Oil Separator. I do not think they comes with one of those either.

New toy

I finally got a chance to shoot some pics of my new project. 2001 Mustang Convertible V6. It has a blown head gasket but so far I have found a place to replace the engine. I found it for 400.00. It has new Goodyear Sports and leather interior.There is only one tiny ding about the size of a dime right behind the fuel door.

Took her out to top off the gas tank yesterday. 43 degrees out and sunny.
I haven't driven this beast in a while. What's this third pedal for again?!?!? LMFAO

I need to do the same. A few weeks ago when we had that day in the 50s I got an oil change and cleaned her for hibernation. Then I realized I didnít top off the gas and add STA-BIL.

Wrapped my exhaust

During the summer I took my Mustang to the track just to get a feel for her and after about 10 to 15 mins of track time the rear diff over temp light flickered on. So I looked at how close the exhaust pipes wrapped around the diff. So I figured I would wrap the pipes to keep the heat away from the diff.

Looks great. Ford should make that color available for all models.

I ran some errands today with my wife and realized that I have put about 2,300 miles on my Stang in the last 10 months. Since we have our two-year-old granddaughter on weekdays we put most of our miles on my wife's CR-V. We have a car seat in it. At this rate the question is will I reach 100 before my Maria does.

Spark plugs. Look a little dirty and some yellow glazing on the top. I know I fouled them a little bit when the car flooded one night, the yellow though...maybe too much WOT lately

I would but I've got the old heads that eat spark plugs. I went with E3 because they're one-piece. Car's running much better now...except the gas leak coming from somewhere around the fuel rails. ~13 years is starting to catch up with the old girl (BTW -- I think it's hillarious it stops showing 1/10ths of a mile after you hit 100K. It's like Fords saying "What are you counting for anymore? Your car's old now..."):

Spare tire kit

I put togather a spare tire kit. The cost was under 500. And if you have ever had a flat on aa busy street or freeway the only choice you have is having your car towed to get a replacement tire. This happens to me once with a different car with very bad memories.
