    Climate Control Issue

    Gents: While driving home from Atlanta, I noticed an issue with Climate Control in my 2005GT. Fortunately, the A/C blows cold (thank god) through the main forward facing vents. I did however notice the rotary control that allows you to select if air blows thru lower vents, 'regular' forward...

    Ceramic Coating

    Forgive me if discussed before - you guys think it is worth ceramic coating over Xpel, or mostly BS? Pretty pricey - about $2000/car for the coating here I'm told.

    How to mount non-carbon wheels...

    Gents, My GT is getting close. Ordered it with carbon wheels. I already bought a 'spare' set of non-carbon wheels from Ford that I'm thinking of powder coating a different color. I know it's been discussed, but I can't recall - Apparently one needs to do something 'special' to use them on a...

    Mustang 350R question

    Curious - are the stripes on the new 350R's removable vinyl, or painted on? Been toying with the idea of one, but not a stripe guy for whatever reason. Also, curious thoughts of owners on car in general. Have ridden in one and really liked it. Didn't get to drive.

    Gents- As I need to replace my rear toe links (see other thread), I was advised to have 4 wheel alignment done afterwards. I have a friend who is a great race mechanic who can replace the suspension bits, however I don't have much faith in my local Ford dealer to do the alignment. The local...

    Was talking to some guys at the Rally about how I might get my car to run a bit cooler. Car is frequently 210+ in our hot Florida temps. It had been suggested that I add some water wetter to my engine coolant. 2 quick questions: Wondering if can just pour some in the engine coolant reservoir...
