    New build

    I suppose it's the challenge of the build. For those that built model cars and airplanes when they were kids will get it. Some guys want to built their own track / custom car and not butcher up a perfectly good GT. Others bought entire powertrains and supporting hardware from crashed GT cars...

    New build

    There are several of us working on building our cars. Slow process but collecting up parts and working away.

    Foose bumper delete

    When I was working on the GT Program, I had a similar thought; cut the frame rails short (or make my own) and have a body colored snap-on cap (3D printed?). That way you can use al the stock based parts.

    Anyone put Ford GT items on their Xmas lists?

    Was hoping Santa would leave me a Gauge Module (goes in the IP on the LH side) in my stocking; need it to complete my latest build but no luck. And I was good this year!

    Mose Nowland Tribute Video

    Really miss him. He was in my shop almost every Tuesday and Sunday since about 2000 helping with restoration projects and GT builds. We had some great times including restoring his 1926 Model T Doctors coupe.

    2005-06 Ford GT Build from Scratch Project

    Silverbullitt, I've used new boots purchased off ebay to replace the rear lower control arm bushing. The boot size is 22 30 20 and there is an outfit from Bulgari (don't laugh) that sells them. No issues with delivery. If you go on ebay and search "dust boots 22 30 20" you will get hits...

    New tire tech

    Well....I went to go get my new tires mounted at Discount Tire since they came in yesterday..... only to find that 2 of the "new" 4 tires had date codes of 2013 and 2016. Discount tire was good about it since they had agreed when I purchased that the date codes would not be any older than 2019...

    New tire tech

    I went with what everyone seems to recommend and run these days for a street tire. I think if I track it, I'd get a second set of wheels and mount some Hoosiers. Used them for years on my 911 with success: Bridgestone Potenza RE050 265/40 R18 P/N: 101Y XL BSW MB 345/35 R19 P/N: 110Y...

    New tire tech

    They could only promise they would be no older than 2019. Ordered thru Discount tire (exact same price as Tire Rack) . The part numbers have changed since a couple years ago.
