    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    Once again, all orders have been shipped and the recipients emailed tracking information. This last batch of parts arrived pretty quickly. PM me if anyone is still interested. I am glad to make these and ship them as long as Trico does not mind making small batches of parts.

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    Following up. All paid orders have now been shipped and the owners have been emailed tracking information for the labels I just printed. These will be at the post office tomorrow. Thanks for everyone's patience as Trico really drew this last batch out. Enjoy.

    New to GT ownership: Midnight Blue 2006 no-stripe GT in El Paso, TX

    Yep, Shelby had the vinyl stripes done at my request when I bought the car from him. I knew he would take them off unless the next buyer wanted them. Was just what I wanted at the time and he did a great job with them. Shelby is a stand up car guy. Have bought 3 cars from him now. Glad you...

    New to GT ownership: Midnight Blue 2006 no-stripe GT in El Paso, TX

    Its number 366, Build sheets show Dec 2005 dates but I guess it left the plant in Jan. Enjoy! Its a GREAT car. Nice to see it home in Texas. It also has the very first pair of low profile wipers ever made for the forum :-)

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    All orders paid by July 15 have now shipped. I am expecting the next batch of parts in around Sep 8. I can still order parts for these so if anyone wants a set, just PM me. Its unfortunate but since I have been ordering small numbers of parts Trico has gotten slower with scheduling production...

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    Just got a PM from a forum member asking about the availability of the wiper arms. As you may know, I no longer own a FGT as of this week. I am willing and can still make a few more sets if folks would like them but cannot say I will be here at FGT Forum all that much going forward. If anyone...

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    Longer one is passenger side. Lift old one to vertical position, pull release clip at base and they lift off. Bit of trial and error to get right position on new ones. Low as possible without hitting edge of hood. Hose hooks to factory connections. Driver side one is easier to reach from...

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    The ones I supplied with the first batch (2013) were Michelin Stealth 5024. Those are no longer available. I got with my contact at Trico (who makes the arms) about possible other blades with the airfoil and low profile. We came up with a Trico OEM replacement part number that works...

    Ford GT gone and new Z06 at home. Thanks Shelby!

    No, I bought the blue one. The orange with tan interior was nice but it was not me.

    Ford GT gone and new Z06 at home. Thanks Shelby!

    With a bit of a heavy heart, I decided to let my FGT go and move on. Sold the GT to Shelby (Elite Autos) and also bought a Z06 from him. The whole sequence went very smoothly. New Z06 is perfect and quite a car. Thanks Shelby once again for a great transaction. 3 cars now.... Thanks to...

    Tesla Model S P85D?

    I uses both active breaking (integrated with accelerator position not brake pedal) and conventional monoblock disk brakes.

    Tesla Model S P85D?

    I hear a good deal about its acceleration. What I don't hear much about are braking and cornering abilities. With the proper options selected, is it a capable fun driving car?

    Tesla Model S P85D?

    Anyone here own one of these? Still looking for a fun daily and this sounds like a fun car with some practicality. Performance stats are pretty impressive.

    GT Wipers with better visibility and looks

    Yes, the 8024 will fit but they do not have the airfoil shape to keep them on the windshield at higher speed. The 5024 does but its not intended for ice and snow. Yea, not so much a concern for this application.
