Go here to see how to make your seats fully recline which is pretty useless unless your a traveler.

Dear Kyle F,

Here they are:

1. Buy a Brake Caliper Paint Set for $49.95 and paint your brake calipers...
2. Take a Magic Marker and paint the "Mustang" on the inside door sill panel in the same color or alternate color of your car...
3. Buy a roll of 1/4" pin striping tape for about $4.95 and tape the outline around your tail light bezels...
4. Buy a small bottle of hobby paint and carefully paint the inside of the "GT" logo in an alternate color of your car...
5. Buy a "Black Out" panel for between the rear tail lights (Tape is cheaper than lexan), you'll find this on ebay...
6. You can buy a wide striping kit off ebay for about $49.95 and with a little luck and alot of help, put wide racing stripes down the center of your car...
7. You can always get chrome license plate frames (under $10.00 each) which will add to the look of your car...
8. I saw on ebay a pre-cut window tinting kit for the Mustang GT for about $39.95 that will let you tint your windows (state laws ???)...
9. Under the hood, you could buy the "hood struts" from Redline for $59.95...
10. Also on ebay, I got a chrome radiator cover (very sweet) for about $59.95 which will dress up the engine compartment...
11. Not to mention, there are other engine dress up wire looms in different colors or even front strut caps for about $6.95 a pair which will add to the mods under the hood...

Good Luck and Welcome to the Forum, Dave :eyepoppin :eyepoppin :eyepoppin :eyepoppin

You can lose weight if you're overweight - that's not only a free performance mod it'll give back money since you're buying less food :winks

A bit rude for a post to a young lady...

Maybe us guys are proud of our beer guts but you'd better look out she's gonna get you back for that one!

I'm a newb, and im not sure if the 05's have it, but you can remove your air silencer on your air box...that'll free up a few horses if they have one. There's an article on it somewhere in the tech section.

Deat DTWest,

There was a guy on ebay selling these flat black plastic discs with a 7/16" hole in the middle which is used to cover the top front shock tower gap...

These discs go over the actual upper shock bolt and hold tight... Try Item #7986222412 on ebay for the product...

Don't have a picture of them (will take one this weekend), but they work to cover that large upper shock mounting hole inside the engine compartment...

They cost me $6.95 and were mailed to me via USPS...

The "wire looms" can by purchased from any auto parts/accessory store like Western Auto, Auto Zone, PPE Boys, etc... Just get them in your favorite color and size, and start rapping any wires that look obtrusive...

You are correct... I am not a lady, and besides the girl in my picture only weighs 120lbs.... if she loses anymore weight it will be form the wrong parts:worship

I am married, she is just a friend, that also knows my wife.

I only wiegh 190lbs, and I am 6' tall... so I don't know if I could really lose anymor e weight
