Mod update and race-mode, '08 style(56k... probably not)

well alot has happened to the fofo since my last update, so update time!!!

Enjoy

i think this is where i left off...

short throw and rear engine mount... i don't have many pics of this... could probably find some... bigred03 (rob) helped me with the engine mount...



before...kinda...


after... kinda... you get the idea...


hood shocks!!!... dont know if i ever posted pics...
hmmm...


hello my precious!!


measuring... don't worry, rain had stopped...


skip all the drilling and cursing...




then a little night shade.... bradwhite style... just not as efficient


then after a little hand polishing and a couple layers of clear...

the front


back, didn't get clear...



warneej(evan) and 2-D(joel) helped me change the rotors and brake pads, and we decided to paint the calipers while we were at it... came out amazing!!









then a week later i decided to finally replace the resonator with the straight pipe portion of my truebendz exhaust...

this went away




and was replaced with this


i also added hood raisers, but don't have any pics... ill have to take some... you can kinda see here in a couple of the next pics...

ooh, and got new spark plugs...

RACE-MODE!!!!

just got these new numbers... i have decided i hate putting them on... but they are still way better than my last ones!!!

took these today because warneejs thread made me feel like a slacker...

they are of the passanger side because driver side got hit by the sprinklers... yesterday













i thought this just looked cool...


and... ROAWR!!!... don't look at the water spots...



and foci chilling after the race, 2-D's got cut out because i wasn't paying attention, but its right there!!!


this one is pretty grainy because we were across the parking lot and i decided to zoom...

all these pics were taken with my cell phone, so hope you enjoyed them!!!

not hard at all... the only thing is the plastic collar under the shift boot, it has an extender thing that is like 4 inches long... i cut it off then used a lock washer that i bent more to make everything lock down... let me know when you attemt that and ill get you some reference pics...

He can't lower it or it will bump him out of stock class and into modified where he'll be playing with the big boys

The car looks so damn badass on those wheels OMG. They're 4x4.25" old 80's mustang wheels so the offset is ridiculous! Now we just gotta work on this front splitter idea!
