    Not only are they more appealing by design, its also funner to pimp the older and rarer parts

    Default Mustang Bullitt Wheels Acquisition

    I got new wheels today for the summer, just for looks and such, since i still have the turbines with tons of life left to them.









    one tire has a gash that i am not thrilled about at all but w/e it holds air.

    those will look so good on that car. the gun metal on the wheels will work well with the brown and the black out treatment.

    that gash in the sidewall is an accident waiting to happen. other than that the rims look nice.

    are you getting new rubber?

    if your gonna use the tires just dont plan on doing any highway interstate driving... i'd really hate to see you get hurt or fuck your car up.

    i think i am gonna replace the one bad tire and then have fun with them. I dont want a blow-out either luckly the other tires are clean and have no gashes. The man i bought them from was obviously a bad parallel parker.

    Sweet!!!! Wait a minute; is your CV a daily driver or a project car? Though now that I think about it, your car weighs enough that you should have traction in the snow even with the Bullitts. Can't wait to see pics of them installed.

    My car is a daily driver. :cry: but its ok, i love driving it. And well the current wheels i have on in my sig are winter tires, and these bullitts will be used as summer cruisers and i still have my turbines to have fun with as well.

    Thanks Pete...and i looked over the gash and turns out it was more of a flap than a gash. i ripped the flap off and i see no chord so i think i will be safe for a bit with that tire. I will still make some smoke though.

    Default NEW DEW WIPE!!!

    Couple days ago I purchased a pristine condition passengers side dew wipe for a full windowed two door. I have a vent windowed two door, but moding this perfect condition item should be no big deal. I got the item from WagonMan (Pete) and I could not be more satisfied with the condition of it. It is flexible and feels o so new, I am truly estatic because the brandy new one TeamFord never arrived. Here are some pics of the fine piece of dew wipe.







    With the addition of this item to my collection I am only looking for a passengers side window channel run and a drivers side dew wipe, because I was fortunate to get a brandy new drivers side window channel run from TeamFord a while back.

    not to sound like a n00b but to this day, i have no clue to how them door sil moldings come off. my 1981 ford chassis and electrical book only states the type of clip but not the removal, install looks pretty straight forward. i tried to rip some off a mark VI to replace mine at a wreckers but couldent make it lol

    There are a couple of screws holding them in addition to those clips. After the screws are removed then you pry upward hoping for the best.
