Ian,
a suggestion for your rear hook loop. use adhesive backed velcro to hold it in the up position. then there's no chance of it rubbing on the paint.

looks real good though! have fun at the track today!

Ian or Steve what offset are those wheels?
Rick, those are +45 offset all around. that was the perfect offset to use front and rear for a flush fit to the body. with more camber, the front can take less offset. -2.5 degrees is best with a +35 wheel, but matching it on the rear makes the rears stick out. i am always concerned about being able to rotate tires, so i recommend going with a +45 all around and when its time for some extra camber, add spacers up front so you maximize your footprint and keep the wheel flush with the lip.

Ian, thanks for posting the pics! I will bet that adding sticky tires and lightweight wheels turned that car into a whole different animal. just wait until you get your aluminum driveshaft on. you will be amazed at what that bugger does for you!
 
Yeah its a CRD but ive not tuned it yet, im only using it to pull the Mustang! so its not used enough to warrant spending money on it

If you do decide to tune it, Green Diesel Engineering is who I used. MPG is up, swirl motor is eliminated (yeah!). They also have the ability to turn off the DPF and allow you to run a test pipe.

I'm currently getting about 17 mpg towing the Boss on a 2100# uhaul trailer. Hoping to improve that with the new 1350# trailer I'm picking up Friday.

Prior to the Green Diesel tune, I had an InMotion USA tune which functioned fine, but didn't give the increase in MPG that the GDE tune is providing.
