As I pointed out, look at the difference in clothing at Tachy's venue vs mine. It is Fall here and two days of rain. You remember what that is Ed?

Ed, do you have a mount on the front of your GT for your cone?

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.
Ah! Got it. I never actually saw them before Rich refinished them and I thought he told me they were red. Now I need to get the calipers on my '06 GT finished in Speed Yellow as well so the cars match.

Speed yellow calipers look spectacular. Great color choice.

The original black just get lost in the wheel.

Car looks great! Where do people get the "GT" decals, like you have placed in front of the rear wheels? I would like to get some made in white. Is everybody just having a local graphics/film shop make them, or...?

Maxemus made them for us, but I believe you could make them easily with a Cricut machine.

Guy who did my wrap was able to download it then cut it. Anyone who does “ wrapping “ should be able to do it easily in any color

Plus one on the above. Huge very positive difference.

Where did you get the GT behind the driver's door? It looks good.

First Show in a long while and my Girl was a big hit and featured at the registration entry spot! Over 65 1/38 model Ford GT’s were given to the kids, (and their parents wanted them too) and we all had a blast!

Additional pictures: I have posted A (Only in Texas Mopar) for your entertainment! My Girl always looks good entering a show in Track Mode but always check out the entrance elevation off the Main Street into the park!

That Mopar looks like a mixed up Rubik's Cube. Terrible

Ha! It was already there. My friend owns the restaurant so he had my space saved & my martini ready as I pulled up!
