Very nice car! The white wheels look really nice against the blue. I just put a svt brake light vinyl on my car today too.

I saw that you were interested in a Euro grill. Any place in particular that I could find one? I would like to get one as well but I haven't the slightest idea of where to look.

Thanks! For the grill, if you want new, you can try here: European-Parts.net (They have tons of other euro focus parts as well, it's fun to browse)
If you want used, just check the Buy-Sell-Trade forum often, that's how I found mine: Parts & Accessories
Make sure you've got a paypal account, as that's the easiest and most common way to deal on FF, besides a local cash sale, of course.

Thanks a million!

One more question. Was there any modifications you had to do when you installed it?

Not sure, as I won't be putting it in until after I put the Mach's in. (Don't want to lose front turn signals yet) I think sometimes a little trimming of the grille is necessary for the hood latch to work. We shall see.

That's what I did, just keep checking the BST forum.

Projects!!

So, I have four-ish projects going on for the SVT right now.

1. Working with Tom to iron out some kinks in his tune.

2. Borla will be installed this Saturday (finally!), was waiting for a chance to go my wife's hometown where we have access to a lift and a bevy of tools, free of charge via her uncle's small dealership/shop.

3. I'll be building this guy once my paint and tools come in:


4. Mach's arrived!!! Unfortunately USPS was not so kind to the driver's side light, the projector arrived pointing downwards, more on that later:


I'll be painting the chrome inserts, so I began taking out the guts 'n stuff, here's what they look like all torn apart:



What happened during shipping is that part of the silver thing seen below broke off in the white clip guy, which attached to a ball joint for alignment purposes. (The piece is actually upside-down in picture).


I shoved the two back together and they *snapped* into place and seem pretty sturdy, so I think I'm gonna be ok there. I'll throw some superglue on it to firm it up. Then I just gotta take apart the passenger side light, polish up the lenses, prep inserts for paint, paint, reassemble, enjoy!
