    Yeah, I'm on the fence. I love the Terminator, but I'm weird about it. I only take it certain places. Put 4,500 miles on it last summer (March-November was good weather) This year I've put on 800 miles. (March-now) The new wore off, so I've been storing it. What I really mean, is I like having a Mustang I can take everywhere and not worry about it....so it's gonna suck to get rid of this thing.

    DEAL!!! Oh the Terminator would pull way more, but I don't think I could let it go. In reality it's just a car. I should take the most money I can get and be happy with the fox. It doesn't matter how fast your Mustang as long as you are happy with it.

    I think there is alot of guy on here that share this feeling with you as well.

    I probably put 50 miles on my black notch this year and ive but 22K on my 2002 mustang since march.

    Driving a mustang thats nice but not mint is the key, that way you really dont give a hoot when a rock flies up and nails the hood, or you can go to a movie and not wonder if anyone is fing with your car.

    my buddy just sold his 04 cobra that had 12k on it for the same reason

    This is very true.. One of the reasons i still have my fox - It ain't fast but i'm happy with it!

    I told you man... Read: Iron Fist, Lead Foot - you have a new outlook on your Terminator

    Yeah, my car never goes to the movies, bar, restaurant, never parked in the street, nothing. Come to think of it, I don't think I'll be able to do that with the fox body either. People like to steal those and even though this one has all the 97 stuff in it and PATS is still working, some dumbass still might wanna get cute and try something.

    Also i gotta ask. Have you ever used repro trim pieces? I installed some roof line trim parts and the fit on the left side is absolute chit. And the drivers side isnt THAT bad, but no where near the stock ones, only reason i bought new ones is that trim black paint sucks balls and keeps flaking off. Have you used any that are good?

    I never use repop trim peices. All that stuff out there is garbage. I only install OEM used peices from the yard. Those roof line peices are always in rough shape. I sanded them with 320, then spray urethane primer on them, repeat sanding and priming until smooth then shoot them with flat black.

    Hmm...I have never had any of my stuff flake off. I've used duplicolor and SEM. Both stuff is great.
