All I did was choose Golden Yellow Metallic. But even cooler when the CEO likes it also. Thanks DBK!

He wouldn't have liked the photo as much if the color was not GYM.

Farley's GT was in the delivery truck with mine on my delivery day.

Nice license plate. Why no wrap on the exhaust?

Thx on the plate. May be hard to see, but there are 2 layers of ppf on the inside lip of the exhaust and below

Sorry Frank.
I hope he brings his GT to future Rallies as I’d love to meet him. Having Henry show up to the track in his heritage is something I’ll never forget!

I did the same but had the pipes ceramic coated
Not taking any chances with all the hydraulics back there.
I did notice that my transmission runs cooler
not even mentioning the wonderful sound it produces

Roketman, yes sounds way better. Haven't noticed the tranny temp, but will monitor next time I am ought-- May not be until next year now, as its -3 *c here today. But should be warmer next week.
I know what ceramic coated is but not understanding the reasoning behind it. Are the pipes getting too hot and are too close to hydraulic lines somewhere?

I had some of this kicking around from when I used it on the 05 to make a heat barrier for the starter trigger. I wrapped the NGT hydro lines that go to the wing.


I also used this, to wrap the Heffner, but only up near the wing hydraulics, which is also not able to be seen. I left the lower part that can be seen exposed. I like seeing the purple heat tinted TI.


Maybe a waste of time and effort, but I figured, would not hurt to do so.

The track version has no hydraulics back there ,so no issues on it.The street car as you know has a lot of hydraulics back there.I Heffner wrap mine as I did not want to take any chances.

Just had a good friend, who is a master mechanic of the highest order, help do the first oil change. Of course, that essentially means he did the entire job and I was moral support only (or in other words, stayed out of his way). It took him about 3 hrs, being very cautious and methodical.

Have to say, I was much more confidant of him being very thorough and careful than my servicing dealer, as he is far more accustomed to working on very rare cars.

Thanks to Specracer Andy for the tips that helped make it go so smoothly!
