    Just removed the front license plate frame, got a couple finishing nails and bent them so they would fit in the holes securely and painted them to match. Beats spending $30 on Bumper Plugs.

    Additionally, I changed the size of my DIY center caps from 2.0 inches to 1.5 inches and made them darker than before.. after further thought I liked the idea of the smaller ones better. I also wasn't completely satisfied with how the other ones came out.

    For only $4 at Home Depot it was absolutely worth it!

    Next I just need to touch up in a couple of imperfections where the larger caps had originally covered.

    Hey man, I've got the TKR wing at full deflection. I've got so much downforce on the highway I could do a loop. I see mustang drivers eyeballing the wing and drooling.

    Simple and cheap eBay pickup definitely gets the job done. Want to keep leather as clean as possible from everyday use and fits like a glove!

    Had ordered it from eBay. Enjoyed the look so far but want to try something new this year. Trying to see if someone would swap the dash trims instead of me taking it off.

    Replaced a cracked turn light and a cracked fog light. It was an absolute mess. The previous owner installed some crazy tri LED setup that had non standard connectors, so I had to splice in a new connector to get the H11 beams to work, but they're still a bit dim for my taste, much dimmer than the LED's I had before. The removal and installation wasnt bad, but now I'm having issues. IMG_20180719_182325187_HDR.jpg

    As you can see below, the passenger side went right back in. the drivers side took a lot of force and fumbling to get it lined up correctly. The issue being, even with it installed over the two plastic clips that it locks into, it's still hanging much too low. The bumper is all bolted up but I have absolutely no idea what I can do to get it put on correctly!

    Left side, looking good.

    Right side, looking awful.

    IMG_20180719_192233732_HDR.jpg

    Any ideas?

    Mendel or bisco called the rear bumper one saggy butt syndrome, I will call this one the saggy boob syndrome.

    i have the same problem on one side of my rear bumper, i think the little clip behind the bumper thats supposed to clip into the fender is broken or bent.
