The company from whom I got the flasher has gone out of business, but if you google 3rd eye brake light flasher, several other companies are providing.

Today, I ran into this sweet '05 GT at the Orange County gas pumps. Fresh fluid changes and tires and looking showroom fresh!

Great to see you and your son Randy. Your photo makes my car look pretty darn good. Nothing like driving the '05 GT. Totally different experience than the New GT (not complaining though).

Nonsense. No magic here. Just my cell phone snap. Your car makes your car look darn good!

You definitely had a fanatic there. The guy was watching from a far the entire time we were chatting, in awe of your car. I saw that he was still there after we left. Still draws a crowd 15 years later! And still will 15 years+ from now for sure.

I spent an hour peeling the foam and cleaning the glue out of my floor mats. They're spotless now. What kind of foam and glue to use? Closed cell Polyethylene or EVA or ???

The "knocks offs" came out great!! Safety wire is a fantastic extra detail. Great look!

Shocks are a great upgrade too!

Ahlman’s, coil covers and “wheels”:)

Looks great, David! We sell and support Girodiscs Brakes also when you are ready! (Specracer has them on his FGT) Great floating two piece rotors that don't make noise due to their design.

Outstanding- I really like it! The adjustability is a terrific feature and totally worthwhile. This car’s ride is very similar to stock- nice comfortable tourer- but noticeably better planted.
It’s a real contrast to how the same suspension is set up in my other car which has a much firmer ride and quicker response (again, very planted).
These things are great!

I can’t say enough positive things about the Ahlman’s suspension. This is a modification with a level of development that you do not typically get in the aftermarket.

Thank you for such a strong endorsement on this great forum, Dave. Definitely a labor of love for me and we will keep making and supporting these as interest continues to be strong.
