Its been a bit since the last update. Been fighting some small issues with leaks, and that is a big pet peeve of mine. So much so that I ended up tearing out the transmission, clutch, and driveline to solve a rear main seal leak. I managed to get the first set of LX side splitters from Carters Customs and they really complete the side/aero profile of the car.

Car is back together and on all 4's. Aluminum flywheel, king cobra clutch, high torque mini starter, aluminum driveshaft, and MGW shifter installed. Still sorting out some stuff with the brakes, but got it out to Sonoma for the Shelby Mini-Nats. Feels so much better with the MGW.

Car is currently at Griggs Racing to finish the Watts Link, through the floor sub frames, torque arm, and some other items. I will update when she comes back home.

Things have been a little busy to say the least.

The Foxbody is at Griggs Racing for the completion of the suspension install. Also got the new Carter’s Customs side skirts on.



Picked up a Raptor that I built a set of Signature wheels for. This truck is a friggin BLAST!



The GT350R is about to get a set of lowering springs, GT4 style hood vent from Carters Customs, and a new set of our Signature Wheel Royal Series SV801.



I love this car world we live in

The first cut is the hardest. Been sitting on this Carters Customs GT4 style hood vent for a while. Lots of stress and worry before and during this process. Now that it’s done I can breathe.

Appreciate all the folks that reached out with pics and words of encouragement like Adam Forestwood, Wes Heath, and Adam Carter. Even more appreciative of my bro Robert Gluckman that was a dick, but motivated me to get it done.

Also got the new Signature Wheel Royal Series SV801 on. 20x11 / 20x11.5 came in at 23/24 lbs.

Car has metal flakes everywhere. I rattle canned the vent black until I figure out how I want to powder coat it. First wash with the pressure washer left minimal water under the hood. One of the guys on The Gram is a genius and just lays a towel under the hood vent when he washes. Freaking genius.

You've got balls to be cutting up that hood, especially when the GT500 hood is right around the corner. I look forward to seeing the new wheels, on your GT350 and Raptor!
It’s been tried, and from my understanding it won’t fit. You going to the sac auto show?

Nice looking Ride.

You should have listened to Frank Zappa. When you go where the Huskies go.......

I saw a tricked out Ranger on the way to the airport this morning in Bangkok. It looked like a 80% scale Raptor with an overdone graphics package. Did not get a picture

2020 GT500 brakes are massive.

Swap is going well with minimal issues encountered. Learned a few things I didn’t know. Happy that brake caliper clearance issues will be solved for the GT500 guys, and the Caliperfexion studs are reusable.

Still need to swap the other side, swap lines, and bleed the brakes

Yo T is this just plug and play or will you need to change any braking calibration? Sweet swap man and glad to see you’re doing it 1st.
