No, I'm still at 10". But they weren't anywhere near the wheels.
Couldn't resist a bit of teasing over those narrow 10's
Why did you choose the softest setting on the BMR 5 way adjustable front sway bar..... or do I have it ass backwards ?
I really like how it handles with that setting. The car is completely neutral as it sits.
Well I guess you should've sent me the 18x11s when I ordered my wheels from you, huh?
Just a heads up: if it's a nice Saturday morning and I'm not at an autocross, I'm probably at the local Cars & Coffee at Hunt Valley:
Maybe I'll see some of you there!
Making my S197 dance!
How's everyone's apocalypse going? I thought the apocalypse would consist of more Norse gods battling, busty Valkyries flying around, and a soundtrack by the composer Wagner, but instead we've got COVID-19, mandatory social distancing, and Lady Gaga.
I've been planning for a while now to put a new sound system in the Mustang, because my Sync keeps dying about every 400 miles. But, thanks to said Coronapocalypse, the car audio shops are all shut down.
To kill time, I've started doing some dress up stuff to the engine bay. If you've seen my car in person, I've got a bit of an understated evil theme going on; everything on my car is gray, black, or carbon fiber. You'll recall that a while ago, I partnered with BMR Suspension. Since they were nice enough to send me parts to review, I didn't mind advertising for them with a VERY VERY RED STRUT TOWER BRACE. That was a few years ago, so I've decided to repaint the thing a different color that goes with my theme a bit better. This morning I removed that brace and some other things from the engine bay to paint over the next week or so. Stay tuned!
Also, fingers crossed this damn virus goes back to China where it belongs and I can get my new stereo installed.
I think this looks a lot better. I'm surprised how well it turned out considering I just used a couple rattle cans of primer, automotive paint, and engine paint.
What's that radium thing?
The brace definitely looks better color-matched!
And the lighter engine cover color does brighten things up nicely as well.
Rattle can painting does not always deserve its popular image.
A 285mm on a 10" wide rim is ample for the fronts..on a DD street car. If you are extreme hardcore, sure, use 11" wide rims. I use a 285 front /305 rear combo. For my DD street use, it's ample. Can't rotate though... no big deal. I did have to use a small 3mm spacer on the fronts.
It's a coolant expansion tank and swirl pot that deaerates the coolant. It's far better than the stock milk jug:
It's all about the surface prep. I sanded, degreased, and washed those parts with dish soap multiple times.
Then you have to use a lot of very light coats of spray paint to get it to adhere without running.
