Yeah I know. :/ I believe 2 of the tabs can be simply reglued but I have to be careful not to rebreak them. I might try to use wire for the rest, or maybe even cut out some plastic from something I dont need and make that work. Yeah I was debating on painting them black. Dont I have to bake them in an oven or something?

Tousley doesn't actually stock the tab repair kits. Iirc he has to get them from a source who deals with discontinued Ford parts.

Finally on the car. The broken tabs didnt really matter, they are on the car nice and tight. The passenger side had 2 tabs left, the drivers only had 1. So for one of the tabs I ghetto rigged it with some wire. Seemed to work well. lol All lights have been replaced with silverstars.







A local guy I met recently came and test fitted the mustang wheels. he has the same lowering kit as me and they work for him. I guess my SVT interior and subs are really that heavy! The center caps arent on because they are fragile and didnt want to take them off again.





Oh and ditched the ff sticker and got this.
