    I did lay out all the pistons so they would go back in their respective cylinders. Not sure if this was overkill or not given the low mileage on these but I always prefer to be safe than sorry.

    The stickers came from here (R&G decal):

    https://www.amazon.com/Brembo-Pisto...43413607&sr=8-2&keywords=brembo+caliper+decal

    The paint was VHT high temp primer, high temp caliper yellow and high temp clearcoat that I ordered online too (can't order directly from VHT's website, kinda annoying). I did all fours brakes with 2 cans of primer, 3 of paint and 1 of clear.

    Some updates to the car last weekend, while the new seats are coming over from UK this week.

    OEM vs GT350 black shifter

    OEM air filter vs blue K&N washable filter (matches almost the Grabber blue too :) )

    Brake fluid reservoir cover

    Then front hubs off the car to fit the ARP studs and OP Mustang spacers. Kinda bugged by how much surface rust these got in just 2 years of driving, considering I don't even drive it in winter...

    [​IMG]

    Caliperfexion studs and extensions for the front calipers

    [​IMG]

    Before and after the front spacers :

    And FTBR adjustable camber arms and toe links on the rear.

    Yes, Corbeau Revenge X for the driver and Pro Series X for the passenger. Custom trimmed with blue stitching, alcantara cushions, custom logos and finished with a carbon fiber shell.

    They look awesome! If you don't mind me asking. Where did you get the seats from? It looks like Corbeau does not offer their motorsport line up over here in the US(unless I am missing something on the US webpage).

    I've been a customer of Corbeau UK for a while now with my track car in Germany so I custom ordered these from them. Created a bit of a stir with Corbeau USA apparently but the latter is currently building custom mounts for them (apparently UK and US seats have different width).

    You said it. LOL.

    Those are gorgeous seats. Is there a Corbeau USA equivalent?

    My wife was pretty ok with turning them into office chairs when they won't be legal anymore in 2025 :D

    The equivalent in USA would be the FX1 from Corbeau, but I think Corbeau USA can get you in touch with the HQ in UK for a set of motorsport seats.

    Fsvt713, weren't you at M1 Cars n Coffee last weekend? I dropped by (with my wife's Austin Mini) and there were quite a few 350s hanging around :)

    Yes I was. Had my 2013 GT there about midway to turn two. Parked next to a newer viper for awhile.

    Seats are in, for now. Drove it yesterday. I need to get all fluids changed this week, have an alignment to get everything back to 0 to have a good base to start from to setup my track alignment with the new arms and everything.
    Seats will come back out as I want to lower the driver seat a little more and move it forward on the sliders for my wife (i am not using the sliders all the way back to be in my optimum position anyway) and I will add a bracket for the 5th and 6th harness straps that go under the seats. I will also build another bracket to fit the seat track position sensors in a correct location so they can do their job properly.
