I have a set. They are being ceramic coated and done tomorrow. I have the black lug nuts as well, but not the longer studs since no carbon fiber wheels for me. I want tires I can drive on when it is cold here. You guys remember "cold?" Under 45 degrees.

Your shirt?
Per several sources, the Hawaiin shirt is the uniform of bitter retired white Trump supporters, so that fits the bill.

Gentlemen,

When I ordered my new GT I wanted gloss black brake calipers to match the ones on my 2006 GT. Surprisingly black was not one of the options early in 2017 (it's available now). How about yellow then? No, that's not available either. So I ordered red and that was fine UNTIL....I saw my buddy Chris's Speed Yellow calipers that he had custom made by The GT Guy. With a little prodding Chris sold me his take off calipers (also red) that were still sitting in Rich's shop and he worked his magic again making me a set that match my exterior paint perfectly.

Three weeks ago I sent my new GT to Sanderson Ford for some final warranty work, oil change, and inspection before my warranty expired on September 29 and ace new GT tech Brian Naylor put them on. I absolutely love them and they really stand out. Peggy doesn't like them but girls don't know anything!!

Hard to believe I've had that car for 3 years now. It's been back to Atlanta twice and all over Arizona. 5300 miles on the car and 7000 miles in the trailer going to events. I love this damn car!!!!! Cheers.

Chip

I think Chris and Rich ripped you off. They say "Bambo."

I personally like the yellow calipers on your car better than the red. (y)

First car show since Covid. Made a couple of young Ford enthusiasts and many more older ones smile today! Great to finally see local car buddies!77E0A783-237A-4D8E-9860-D210A82E8D24.jpeg7B611787-A786-4EDD-9F75-150E708022AF.jpeg77E0A783-237A-4D8E-9860-D210A82E8D24.jpeg7B611787-A786-4EDD-9F75-150E708022AF.jpeg

First car show of its type in St Louis area. Had some elements of a Woodward cruise. Only my two GTs but lots of Lambos and Ferraris. Who knew St Louis had such a car culture. Lots of muscle and iron. Held at Edwardsville, IL Sunset Hills country club ( home of Raj Nair) Nice event except very windy. Cars ended up being full of leaves. Note the difference in attire

They came out great Chip but you already know that. The only small correction I would make to your story is my take off calipers were black from the factory. I figured why pay the extra money for red since black was free and I was going to swap them for yellow.
