Dropped off at Unique Car Care in Andover MA. They have a stellar reputation and put on my first clear bra when I bought my 2014. I pick her up in the morning.

AWESOME BRO!!!
That's the shop that did the ceramic coating on my truck almost 3 years ago. Speaking of which, I need to have it redone soon. Real soon.

I got full hood coverage and it looks great. Glad I decided on the full hood this time.

How do you like the ceramic coating?

I ordered Koni orange shocks and struts for my mustang. Can't wait to receive these.

I see you guys are still getting hammered with snow. Horrible!!
Tony I drove through some hair raising **** with my mustang this winter. Got stuck once for a bit but drove it out. Seriously thinking of an all wheel drive for next winter.
In addition.

this is how we celebrated mustang day (only 2 days late!) busy time of year so to get both kids together outside on a nice day with the cars is not easy.....

Finally painted my pony emblems. I wanted to keep the red white and blue, but I couldn’t figure out a way to paint the silver portions and have the stripes look clean and crisp. I think I dig it this way anyway.

Sounds killer Gabe. Not really too loud in my opinion. Maybe when driving it must be loud.
When did you take the cats off? I thought New Hampshire was one of those states like MA that busted ***** about emissions?

Damnnnn,......yeah Mark. You need an awd vehicle for the winters man.
Better yet, get a 4X4 and never get stuck in snow. lol

That's awesome man.

Sorry for the super late response. I seldom visit this thread.
I LOVE the ceramic coating! If you are on the fence,....do it! Blows away any other detailing product out there. Mine was only warrantied for 2 years, so it's been 3 years this month and I need to have it done again. I can't keep the maintenance up in the winter time obviously, because it's too brutally cold out.
I would love to go back to UCC, but they are even further away from me now, so highly unlikely. There's a shop in Dedham, MA that does the 7 year Opti-Coat Pro Plus and it's warrantied for 7 years,........BUT YOU PAY FOR IT! It's big money! lol

Thanks Tony, the cats are now back on as of yesterday.
Yes, they need to be there for inspections, they do visual and OBD checks, so no real way around it.
Plus, I don't want the possible fine, so they're back on.

So that's what I did to my Mustang yesterday, still working on it today actually, since I had to get new clamps and I ran out of time yesterday - had to get to the first cruise night of the season for the NH Mustang Club

We took the wife's Shelby, she drove

Went out to dinner afterwards, found a nice spot in a nearby parking garage.

Leaving the parking garage at the end of the night, the wifey couldn't stop grinning as she was making that Shelby bark .... LOL

(the "ah, ****" at the beginning was cuz she missed an exit, so we had to loop around; we were on the 3rd floor making our way down)

Hah, I spent more time today looking for parts for my mustang than actually doing anything fun with it. That's what I get for not doing a proper inspection and getting one where the last owner removed the cats, and I need to pass an inspection when I move. Oy vey.

Drove it to work. Second time this week and tomorrow's looking like it's gonna happen again

The boss allows me to park it on the dealership lot, right next to the trailer we work out of. Awesome.

What a nice way to disconnect from the work day ... a nice drive in the 600-horse Mustang

I put the SVT wheels back on today.
They have almost-new front Continental DW 285/40/18 tires and almost-new rear 305/40/18 Nitto 555R's on them.
Much better than 6-year-old Eagle F1's and bald 555R's


And every time I put these wheels back on I realize how much I love the look

Did an oil and filter change on my 2017 GT, its been 11 months and 435 miles. I don't drive her much. the funny thing is my neighbor wanted the used oil for his lawn mowers. I use 5/20 motorcraft semi synthetic. He was joking...
