The last forum I participated in had a thread called "What have to done to your car today?" People talked about just what the title implies. Everything from a good wax job to major mods. It was an ongoing thread and, by the time I joined that forum, it was several years old and covered dozens of pages. I see a lot of threads here that could fall under that general heading. I think the Mustang forum should have something like that.
Anyone else?

Last Friday I treated mine to a wax job and got in some karate practice in the process. :grin:

Technically, nothing today. Last week, I installed Steeda Charge Motion Delete Plates and a Ford Racing GT500 Throttle Body. I did some 2010 OE Style Black Wheels 3 weeks ago. Now I am just waiting to install an SLP Line Lock Kit and put my Nitto 305/40 R18 on the car and light'em up.

Took mine out for a drive earlier this week. She has been sleeping in the garage since November. Next on the agenda will be an oil change and a good wash and wax.

Tuesday I installed a set of factory -style alloy pedals plus a matching dead pedal I got on sale from LMR. The gas and brake pedals were pretty easy. Because the reviews said the 3M tape on the gas pedal was a bit weak I also used epoxy. The dead pedal was a bit more involved. Had to pull the door sill trim, then the kick panel as well as pull up the carpet so I could access a 13 mm bolt to mount the d/p to.
Anyway, it looks great and the d/p makes it more comfortable as well.

Gonna grease the LCAs tomorrow.
Also mash the gas pedal at least once or twice a day.

Snow mostly gone here now and streets are mostly dry, so got the stang out last night for first test drive after installing an Exedy Mach 500 clutch, flywheel and SR Performance Braided Stainless Clutch Line.

All went really well. Clutch was quiet, very precise and buttery smooth, . Going to drive the prescribed 500 miles though before hitting it real hard .

drove the stang to work only to have a 5.0 want to run, she held for a few but the 5.0 pulled away (I had to turn). add supercharger, forged rods and pistons to build list. GDI! it never ends but it sure as hell is fun.

This thread is a good idea. A lot of car/truck/bike sites have similar threads. I`ll insert just one word in the thread title if the OP does not mind, & that word is "with". That will encompass pretty much every interaction you could have with your car. I`ll also make it a sticky.

I ended up swapping out my factory H pipe on my 02 GT for a UPR O/R X pipe. That was pretty fun and it definitely was worth the 160 and day or so I took to drop it in (I am a total noob when it comes to working on my car - every project is a first for me) and I am happy with the results.

Next is a SLP loudmouth cat back :D

New Exhaust

It was last Thursday but I got my Cat Back Exhaust installed. I could not be happier. I went with the Borla S type Cat Back system. Its perfect I was smiling all the way home. It brings the car to life best Mod so far.

Well, after winning the American Picker of the Month Award by means of purchasing a 1 Owner 35th Anniversary(not limited lol) Mustang Gt Convert for $1800.00. Today I made the very first mod ever to the car with the install of a new Cat Back exhaust system. I did drive it around with just cats and str8 pipes for a day and it actually sounded mean as hell. Maybe if I was 20yrs younger, maybe. Next on checklist is 3.73 gear swap along with aluminum drive shaft.
