It was wrenching time on the SHelby this weekend!!! It hasn't been on track since Grattan but I'm slowly preparing for the next trackday in September. My girlfriend helped out also as we put the camber plates on the front suspension (would have been a great time to fit the lowering springs, but they're currently sold out and FP can't give a delivery date so I'll do it next winter!) and the Steeda sleeve inserts on the rear subframe. It will be on jack stands tonight again as I didn't get the time to set my camber on the rear while I was under it, we were running of daylight
I've also put the windshielf visor stickers from RPI Designs yesterday, so nice to not have that ugly white sticker in my angle of vision anymore!
I have to clean the car tonight and fix a couple stone chips on the front before it gets its Xpel clear bra on Friday, after that I will be able to drive it without worrying about the paint anymore. That's going to feel good!!
I took the opportunity to have the car on jack stands and with the wheels off to take some measurements of the front splitter assembly in order to design my own "GT4" splitter this winter, along with the front canards I've already done (but not fitted). I also took some measurement to build a couple of brackets to setup a cooling duct going from the cooling opening in the front area of the wheelarch liner and attach it to the hub in order to cool my brakes properly.
I also have to modify my Steeda hood struts to make them fit the GT350 (i don't like the RedLine ones, ugly logo, looks very ricer to me, so I went with the Steeda, even though they are supposed to fit only S550 GTs and Ecoboosts...), also get a strip of rubber to fill the gap between the headlamps and the hood/fenders to reduce the amount of air getting sucked under there.
Winter will be busy with the harnesses and cage installation, as well as a couple other things on the suspensions / brakes. We'll take the Shelby to a bunch of GridLife events next year along with the Cooper S that my girlfriend will start tracking next month (we also did the suspensions, brakes, alignment and a couple other things on it before taking care of the Shelby). Busy weeks and months ahead of us, combined with busier work schedule (hence why I'm really late on giving the tshirt graphic to Rick!!!!!) and the old Barracuda to get ready for Dream Cruise. Sounds like it's time to add another car project on top of these no?? lol
