Just a little bit of melting for me last night...



Why Ford did you have to make these things round with no keys or slots...

Reason for the replace, bumped a curb in the storm we had Monday. Just a little bent.


Alignment scheduled for Thursday Morning.

RS Wing - Stills Needs Paint

Same price as the ST wing so I went for it, like it more than expected (Still unpainted at the moment)

Your car looks sharp. I like the red strip with the red lug nuts,

What are your plans for painting? Going to go with a solid matching black or add some more color? I've seen some where they paint the inside supports or outward facing parts a contrasting color.

Going to keep the RS impression on the side or fill it in? I dont like that the ebay ones left that on there. Heck, even if i had an RS I would still prefer that to be smooth

Agreed, I do hate the RS imprint. could I just use spray filler and sand smooth before I paint? never worked with filler or bondo before.

As far as color, for now just the tuxedo black. thought about making the top section (flat wing) red.

Who knows!

Naw, deep enough to need application with the plastic spreader - like most Bondo jobs.

And at least a couple layers with sanding between, to get it all filled and level (Bondo NEVER works perfect in one).

Wasn't today but two days ago. I got my car plated, new Michelin Defender tires and installed a new aftermarket radio in my car.
