Recent pics of the GT500

Power By The Hour installed the Carbon Fiber driveshaft, McLeod clutch & slave cylinder, 2014 GT500 radiator fan, larger alternator pulley (to slow it down...factory pulley spins too fast), and did an overall inspection to verify everything was still working 100%.  Driveshaft makes it drive buttery smooth and the clutch feels factory, super easy to drive.  As always, the work was flawless.

New install update

Having Power By The Hour install a new McLeod 1200 hp clutch kit with lightweight flywheel.  Was hoping to have a DSS carbon fiber driveshaft installed at the same time but Lethal & DSS couldn't come through in time so now that will have to wait a few months.  Pretty frustrating.

Also having some suspension pieces installed - Maximum Motorsports bump steer kit, Steeda ball joints, BMR sway bar end links, 2013 GT500 radiator fan, BMR driveshaft safety loop, and some other odds and ends.

Legal services - NFA (Gun) trusts

As an attorney licensed to practice law in Maryland, I offer NFA trusts (also known as gun trusts) for law abiding Maryland residents.  My website is www.emeraldcoastguntrusts.com  This is my way of giving back to my fellow gun owners and helping to protect our second amendment rights.  If you are on svtperformance, let me know and I'll give you a discount.

If there is enough interest, I may start doing them for FL residents and VA residents.

First day at Mickyard leaves much to be desired

Well, so far the Mickyard event has been consistent in its disorganization.  From the Pony Cruise to registration and parking, it's been pretty poor in my opinion.  The parking for the display cars is not in a good location either.  At this point, I don't plan on attending another Mustang Club of America event.  I thought this event would be the right choice over Dream Cars Weekend but the communication and organization of Dream Cars has been much better.  Hopefully the spectators enjoy Mickyard and can get to see the show as well as display cars tomorrow and Sunday.

Mustangs at the Mickyard

I'll have my car at Mustangs at the Mickyard (Disney in Orlando).  It's the same weekend as the Dream Car show, Labor Day weekend, also at Disney.  If you see me around, give a shout.  Although I won't have time for a full detail, it should be in good shape for the show.  I'll do a full clay, light polish, seal, several layers of carnauba, and a final gloss enhancer in a few weeks.  This show only has a wax job...ran out of polisher and couldn't get it in time for the show.

New badges installed.

I finally installed the custom badging from Billet Pro Shop over the weekend.  The build quality is outstanding - easily OEM quality.  The attention to detail and ability to customize the badging really sets them apart.  

The install only takes a few minutes and the badges install with automotive 3M tape.  I elected to reuse my factory grill snake which simply reattached with 3M tape.  I attend a show every month and, to my surprise, these badges drew a number of compliments.  They were a huge hit.  I'll take pics and post them up soon.  

New Steeda rear X-brace

I installed the new Steeda X-brace.  I still need to trim the panels but this should give you an idea of how it will look.  I removed the polished Steeda plate and painted it textured black so it blended better.  Fitment is great and I installed it myself in about 30 minutes.

There are a few reasons I went with this brace over the Boss 302 brace available through Ford Racing Performance Parts (FRPP).  First if function.  In my opinion, the Boss 302 brace is marginally functional at best.  It does not tie in the rear shock towers nor is it made of anything substantive.  Second, the FRPP brace does not allow you to retain the rear seat.  Third is price.  The FRPP brace is over $1,000.  The Steeda brace is $299.  Fourth, ease of install...the FRPP is not quick to install.
