    Latest update,
    I put a black upper radiator hose on LOL

    Since I sold my truck I decided to get the windows tinted. I think I made a mistake. I looked at all the sample glass he had tinted in his shop and the 20 % looked really light the 15% looked like what I wanted and limo was to dark. So I opted for the 15%.gave him the keys and went home....I Just picked up the car and its a lot darker than I expected.....I hope I dont get a ticket... theres no AC in the car so the windows are down when its warm and dry and i really dont drive the coupe at night very often...time will tell......

    Its very overcast in this picture bt its pretty dark....... ugh...

    When I first bought my car, it had limo tint on all the windows, and it was retarded dark. Between that and the tinted headlight covers the PO had on the car, it was impossible to drive at night. After getting pulled over for the window tint twice, it had to go. Now I'm starting to think about putting tint on the windows again, but something much lighter. How much they charge you?

    I keeel you!

    Haha, how did I miss this comment? Once I get a new clutch cable in my car, we need to meet up at the track and make Josh come out so he can envy us, since we actually have drivable cars right now.. :p

    You need to give me a heads up when that happens, I definitely need to see that in person, hahaha.

    Yea, last time I was at the track, I was roasting. Can't blame you there.

    A coupe as nice as yours is what made me sell the GTO and start looking for the one I ended up with. I told my wife it'd be cheaper since I didn't have to make a 369.00 monthly GTO payment.

    Let's see......it's only been a year since I bought that thing,:thinking:...If I woulda kept the GTO I'd only be out 4500.00.
    Since I bought that mustang and don't have to make a monthly payment, I'm thinking I've spent just about 1.5 times that YTD.
    :eek:

    Soo, now that I think of it.


    A coupe as nice as yours is what has caused me to just about go broke, put my eye out, and corrupt my every waking moment. Cause me to neglect friends and family, the yard, the house, AND the dog.

    Thanks!

    For having such a nice car:D

    Well first off I had to clean up the garage and make it better looking

    Then I took the exhaust off car. I had American thunder 40 series mufflers. I opened them up and modified the guts and welded them back up

    Then I made these 3" stainless tips and installed them onto the 2.5" Mac exhaust tubes from muffler back I picked up.

    Here they are compared to stock

    I'll try to get a vid with audio sometime soon.

    The gutted 40's sound similar to Mac flowpath mufflers deep at idle and raspy up top. I like it. So far all my mustang buddies have said it sounds great.
