Had a large refresh service at Elite Autos Including new wheels and tries, AC recharge, oil line replacement, etc. So far 2900 miles in 5 months of ownership. It's been fantastic.
Like those wheels! Please post pic(s) of the whole car when you get time (y)

Edit: Nevermind, I see 'em in your wheel post ... looks great (y) :cool:

Rims are awesome. Would go with billet engine braces well.

Had the 10 year old Protective film removed. Some minor track related blemishes fixed, & paint corrected.

Then new self-healing Xpel applied including windshield film (different manufacturer that I have forgotten the name) and Ceramic coating.

Oh, and this time we put water-transfer American flags on the fenders and laid the Xpel over the top.

Looks brand new. If it were not for the fact that I never fell out of love with this car, I would say I fell back in love today. Best car I have ever owned, bar none.
.

Edit; windshield was done with Clearplex.

Looks great. Has anyone painted a NFGT in this color?

Great looking car, getting the old PPF brightens it up

Thanks. I hadn't realized how the 10 year old film had turned yellow. Once it was off, it was amazing how bright the stripes looked. According to the installer, yellowing is not as much of a problem with the newer films.

Yes, on the yellowing. I had a 2010 Viper ACR that the film had yellowed. When I replaced it I was amazed at how good the paint looked! You are correct, the newer films are not supposed to degrade nearly as quickly.

Love the look of the side stripes removed while leaving the “Ford GT”.

Paint looks great!

I think it was your car that inspired me years ago. And I thought you were going to point out the Intech.
