Nice ride. My cousin is a pilot, he used to fly in (to Louisville) from St Louis just to pick us up and take us to their house for swimming. Then he would fly us back that niht. He was trying to get those hours, you know how it goes.

I like the Ford blue on the brakes. Is that heat paint or just regular paint? Do you have a shot from further back, not so close to the wheel? I'm pondering blue myself, on my black car, you just don't see a lot of blue.

Car is the bomb man, hope my sedan turns out that nice.

Wow i had no idea someone bumped my thread months ago. Thanks for the compliments, The car has been replaced on a temporary basis as I bought a 12 back in july. She's working winter duty now but still looks great when detailed.

As for the paint, its Ford blue engine block paint, nothing special, just made sure I cleaned the calipers real good before painting. Ive driven maybe 80,000 miles since then, the paint is still sticking and no chips in it.

Flying to pick up wheels is awesome!!!!

Do you still have your sub in it, that is badass as well - looks OEM. Could We see daylight pics of it?

Congrats on the 2012 purchase, but I am still a bigger fan of the MK1's! Need moar pics!!!!!
