    Purchased a used 2003 GT a few months ago. PO did a lot of good work, and I am continuing daily to make it the best Stang around my area. A blast to drive!

    Wow, since you were new to this site I was not expecting much other than the exterior mods that are visible. Very nice car inside and out!

    Driver's seat turned out killer!!! Still have some tweaking to do, but retained the stock electric slider! That's right, full control electrically. Loving it. Gotta drive it tomorrow and get a real feel for it. Debating whether or not to even use the passenger side. Got everything working like stock minus the lumbar, but haven't given up on that just yet. What do you guys think?

    Those are sick! I don't think you can get the lumbar to work, unless you get into the seat. If I were you, if you do not use the rear seats much, I would do a rear seat delete.

    I understand. I have a 3 yr old, so I can't now. But when it is an option, I defiantly will!
