Yeah you're right. I'll probably get that done when I yank the tails again to polish them.

Lol. I don't. But I like to see behind me when I'm backing up more than I like the look of them completely smoked.

I'm glad you left the backup light clear, it looks better and it's significantly safer. I do agree to tint the third brake light as well. Also, I hate to be "that guy," but...NEEDZ MOAR LOW.

Edit: Just saw that you addressed this. Oops.

Working on an SVT wing and rear bumper.

Already have an SAP front and Roush sideskirts. Once I get everything together I'll get them painted and installed. Probably sometime early next spring.

Lol. It's okay. Be that guy.

I had a choice between tinting tails or dropping it this weekend. I pulled off my tire to see how much of a PITA that rear lower control arm bolt was gonna be and I felt it start to bind up when I tried taking it out, so I screwed it back in. Decided to wait until I had a sawzall so I can cut the damn springs and remove them rather than mess with buying one or possibly two lower control arms.

Drop will happen in two weeks. I'll be sure to post up pics.

Originally I was going to go for the FRPP suspension setup. 1.5" drop, designed by ford, and only $320 shipped from Tousley for springs AND dampers.

However, I managed to score a really nice set of H&R sport springs from another member for only $65. So I bought the FRPP dampers for $140 and am going to see how it rides. Total cost will be a little over $200. Not bad.
