Talking First wax job, had to take new pics

Detailer-spray first, then a coat of Meguiar's Carnauba Wax, then a short drive to an empty parking lot nearby for some pictures :evil: :























As for the stuffed panda in the back seat ... that's just Ted ... my faithful companion everywhere I go ...

He was my Mom's. She passed away 2 years ago. I recently moved in with my GF and we don't really have room for him in the apartment, and even if we made room, her 2 cats would probably get cat hair all over him, so I'm avoiding that by having him hang out in the Mustang

Great pictures. Looks like the trees are peaked. You don't need a drop if you need to drive it during the snow months.

Now I know why Mustangs have back seats, I knew there had to be a reason.

Thanks guys.

The drop will come, but I'm starting with the rear-only "55D" kit for Brembo-equipped cars, to lower the back 1/2" to give the car a more level look.

This car rides pretty stiff as it is, I don't really wanna make it ride any harder, and with the roads around here I'd rather not go lower than stock for now ... bringing down the rear will minimize that huge gap at the back and make the car look "right" in my book

Almost ran to the window to make certain my car is still outside. Then I noticed the Recaros and sat back down. :-) Looks good man!
