    Yeah, don't have one of those...I just have the basic tools. Plus, I'm the type that finds a way to break stuff. I have used a heat gun before...was attempting to dry out the inside of my headlamp after fixing the cracks where water water was leaking in. Managed to warp the plastic; I have Russ (03mmmonroe) as a witness because this happened at his place 7-8 years ago.

    Here's the pics. 1st one is leftmost hole...bolt spotted. 2nd one is the next hole...no bolt. 3rd one is the next hole...no bolt. The remaining 3 holes are the same; bolt on outermost hole, no bolts on the other 2.

    Edit: ok, so the pics came up reversed from how I attached them...so reverse the order...lol.

    You can also use fishing line and "saw" thru the sticky tape. Then use a 3M magic eraser wheel to get the remaining tape off. Finally, clean the surface with acetone. Don't worry, the acetone will not harm your paint.

    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    I'm looking to eliminate the double pump process I have to follow right now to get the pedal hard

    Appreciate your help, but I don't fish so would have to go buy some line. I was thinking the spoiler was just bolted on and that I could take it off/re-install easily. Now that I see it's got adhesive tape I'll just let the paint shop deal with it when I bring my car there to have the bumper repaint job done. If they mess it up then they'll be responsible and have the ability to fix; if I mess it up I'll be responsible and will have to pay someone else to have it fixed...lol.

    F250 day today. 15 minutes to install new V-Leds headlights (Sweet!). 2.5 hours doing deep clean & conditioning of leather seats. Picture doesn't do justice to the before/after...

    Blew up the diff again. Two diffs in 7 months / 880 miles. Maybe a new record??

    This rear REALLY doesnít appreciate clutch drops, power, and the chubby car itís expected to push!

    Last one was Ford Racing and lasted a good few years before I exploded the spiders. This one was a Yukon dura grip that seemed pretty impressive until heading home today. No clue what gave out, one nasty audible pop and neutral city. Even put it in 1st and got out to witness a spinning driveshaft. No crunching sounds like when I shear the teeth of the 4.30ís, not violent left to right body movement like when the spiders binded up and shattered, just a single bang.

    Towed home, put away, will open it up someday this year or next.

    That sucks....sorry to hear about the mechanical maladies.
    I agree with you;
    An 8.8 is marginal at best in a powerful, heavy, stick shift car....
    Sticky rubber too?

    It's obvious that you don't know how to drive or take care of your MM. You need to give it to me...

    Nope! Actually I was rolling at around 40. But they are brand new Nitto 421Qís and as they spin just enough to squeal, the car absolutely plants you into the seats. 1st gear is a complete waste at any speed so I never bother even trying, just immediate shredding and rev limiter. 2nd and up pedaling after 3,500 each gear is such an adrenaline rush!

You need to sell it to me for nothing less than $20,000.

    Yeah Kyle I see you are definitely having some issues. Hopefully this fix I did helps Bud.

    Recently changed the transmission fluid and gear oil.

    Kevin @ Pantherlights got my set of custom projector headlights done. I hope to get them installed by Sunday since they're coming in this Saturday. Very excited for some real bright headlights out of this car.

    Time just keeps dragging on now that they're actually on the way! I decided to go for the top tier Morimoto kit without any bells and whistles. I really like the classy look of panthers in general so it was a no-brainer to go for a clean, OEM look.

    I'm planning on driving this car up the East Coast to visit family this summer so I'm very very glad Kevin managed to get them finished beforehand so I'll have a safer journey north. The price was steep, but I really do think they'll be worth the cost!
