    Foam bumper support...will I sag without it?

    Apparently the shop that fixed my car almost a year ago didn't properly re-install the foam bumper support so when I was isolating some rattling sounds I took off the front bumper and the foam support just fell out, and not in one piece. :mad: I know it helps in a front-end impact but I can't...

    Trunk hard to close and clunks over bumps...any ideas?

    Since I got my car back from the shop it makes a clunk from the rear, and it sounds like the trunk. I noticed a couple of things with it when I took a look: - the springs that are supposed to cushion the trunk when closing don't have those rubber pads on them anymore - it's hard to close...

    A couple new pics of the car fresh out of the shop

    After 21 long days, I finally have my car back. Here's just a few shots I took on my way home. - The car didn't get a full re-paint, but it got one hell of a blend job. - They replaced the Cobra bumper, which was the one big thing I was worried about. - Using the money they would have spent on...

    Crashed the stang...*update 3/02 Cobra bumper ftw!*

    Update 3/02 My comment about not getting the bumper replaced was based on the estimate sheet I had read but when I went to call the shop I found out they went ahead and ordered a Cobra bumper. However, the order placed was for an 03-04 Cobra bumper so I had to correct them with the right year...

    Put the car on the dyno

    I had the car dynoed stock when I got her on a Dynojet and she made 225rwhp and 267rwtq. I thought it was time for an updated run with my limited mods and our local shop, SS Performance Group, just opened with a Mustang dyno. For those who don't know, Mustang dynos are known for reading lower...

    More complications from my wheel theft...

    When my wheels were stolen, they jacked up the car by the gas tank and the radiator support. Well the body shop didn't see the damage to the tank because the plastic gas tank cover was hiding the damage. Turns out they damaged the pump and the tank pretty badly. The only reason I found out...

    What a difference 'new' headlights make

    I bought a set of used (but still far better shape than mine) headlights and swapped them over after doing a bit of cleaning up first. Still need to align the beams but otherwise I'm in business. Before After Before After

    Would Replacing Door Panel Inserts Fix Problem with Fitment?

    My door panel inserts fit like crap and I guess it's just from being old or worn? Would replacing them with new ones fix this problem because it's the one part on my interior that bugs the crap out of me. The bottom part fits fine but the top part of this piece pops out and won't ever stay in...

    Clutch/flywheel help...

    So a few questions: - Is going from a 11" to a 10.5" clutch worth it, and what would I need to do this? - Do the benefits of an aluminum flywheel justify the extra cost over billet steel? - Are there any brands I should avoid? I was thinking about an aluminum driveshaft while I was at it...

    Highlight of my weekend: new wiper blades

    I always thought the silicone wiper blades looked just as cheap (and twice the cost) as the normal metal-arm blades. So I spent the extra $2 and bought some of those 'hybrid' wiper blades that uses design elements from both.
