    You'd think, but the break-in was started as soon as I turned right, out of the dealership. ;) :D The restricted part of the tune was released right after her first track day.

    Here's the Boss staying cool under the iconic bleachers at Shannonville. Had a great day lapping today. Thanks to JDee and friend Norm for dropping by to say hi!

    Great to meet you in person Dave, car looked and sounded good on track. Busy day for Shannonville, saw more spins yesterday than I've seen all year! The drifters were taking the drifting a little too liberally I think! Just as happy I took a pass on that one, it was pretty busy and with Mont Tremblant coming up this week I didn't want to risk anything going on with the car. Hopefully see you again this year, perhaps Mosport or 'bogie? Or a mid-week Shannonville when it's less busy.

    Did some needed repairs to the FakeR's solar battery maintenance system. One leg of one splitter was dead so I could only hook up one type of panel at a time. Which is a pain since we've had a lot of overcast morning and sunny afternoons lately and the crystalline panels essentially don't work without direct sunlight. So i'd have to switch over to the amorphous panel if I wanted to charge while it's cloudy out. Switch over to the crystalline panel(s) to make use of a sunny afternoon. Topped off the Braille B2015 on the plug-in charger, and everything seems fine after a year and a half. The one on the Boss still holds a charge like new and it cycled off the maintainer just fine for two weeks before getting down to 12.44V.

    Too bad there ain't enough square footage on a Tesla to keep it solar charged! I'd be in for that.

    FakeR's solar charging seems to be working. 12.78V measured yesterday evening. Overcast and drizzly all day today and still got a 13.02V reading this afternoon.

    Finally finished the Watson Roll bar, and got the OMP seat in today. The Mustang has been on the back burner the last couple weeks. Thought about starting a build thread, but feel a bit like a hoser, cause for one I haven't even been out on track with this car yet, and two, I feel this is a pretty mild build compared to a lot of you guys on here.

    No pressure either way. Bar and seat look good!

    I installed a Cortex Watts link and a 18MM rear sway bar. Like others have said, the rear seems more planted, more stable.
    Finally got on track. Spent a day instructing my daughter in the Boss.
    Good times!!
    Also had the pleasure of meeting Drlee50. My daughter saw his car and asked me if it was a GT with badges removed. So we went over and said hello. He has removed the Boss stripes and added a very subtle gray Boss 302 logo on the front fenders. BTW. The man can drive.
