You'll enjoy it. The install you probably won't. Just make sure you have a metal file on hand, you might need to file down the flashing on the pivot arm on the transmission to make it fit properly. And liberally grease the ball stud before reinstalling the linkage.

That little bracket makes a bigger difference than the Tri-Ax shifter did, though.

I'm really just waiting for warmth. Good points on the file and grease. Thx

I'll have to find a file, but today I picked up new grease and loc-tite.

Also, this came in:

With the 'deadline' for the next round of updates a little under three months away now (the first big show of the season) I still have time to keep working on the car to get it ready, and these have a while to cure fully.

Next I need to track down a couple more clips which are unique to the ST side skirts, and new front mud flaps.

In the meantime, a few more photos...



Looks amazing! I would love to do something like this on mine.

Well, they'll be one step closer to going on, soon. This afternoon I dropped them off at work so that a co-worker can wrap them in 3M.

I'm still looking for a set of mudflaps but they may have to wait for now. Mine won't fit the new, larger skirts and the flat mudflaps Ford offers apparently don't fit STs. I'm not keen on Rally Armor either, so I'm still looking. I also still need those two final clips, but I can maybe modify some of the extras I have to make them work.

Have you tried rokblokz? Might still not be what you're looking for, but definitely better quality flap then rally armor universals. Non polyurethane ones. Or whatever they are. They just bend back with all the hp our focii make. :-)

Although. The rokblokz come precut and with hardware for titanium I don't know if the same mounting point is used on the rocker. As there is one point there for mounting.

OEM ST side skirts - installed:

Yesterday afternoon my coworker called to let me know that the side skirts had been wrapped in 3M and were ready to go. I promptly got down to the dealership and picked them up.

I decided that I'd just install them now, and get them out of the way.

Off came the original side skirts, after removing the front mud flaps and an assortment of clips. Note the frozen soap underneath from the car wash; it was cold.



The clips were moved over to the ST skirts. Fortunately I only broke one during removal but had lots of spares.



These little flaps were pulled off of the stock pieces and installed on the rear of the ST skirts. They fit right on and I assumed that was correct...but when I saw an ST at the car show today I noted it didn't have them. Hmm.





Regardless, with those on the skirts were clipped in place and I tidied up.



It was fairly late when I finished up last night, so quality shots were hard to get. Today following the trip to the car show I was able to get some relatively decent ones though, even though the car is dirty again.





Boy, do they make the stock 16s look small though. You'll also note the rear mudflaps are still on. I've yet to remove them.
