My pal came by yesterday in his Evo. Performance Stage 4 GT500. The car also had 4.10 gears and Nos also. Man those headers sound sweet, I can't wait to get them on my car. Well he let me drive as he was on the hunt for hotwheels. My pal is a huge Mustang fan and has over 6000 hot wheels as well as several 1:18 scale cars. Infact his christmans tree orniments are all hot wheels. I also found 5 red w white stripe 07 GT500 hot wheels at Toys R Us :cool:

Once we returned to my house, he was admiring how clean my car was and checking out my new SHELBY windshild banner. I am surprise I never caught this, but my pal pointed out to me a 3 inch split/rip on the edge of my dash pad. In the area of the defrost vent while he was looking through the windshield.:eek:

Looks like I will be making a trip to the dealer. This is a place I would have never looked and I am sure most don't inspect. So you guys might want to check that area as well for rips along the edge of the dash pad closest to the windshild from one side to the other.

And as for my choice of gears, after driving my pals car, 4.10's are to much for a modded street car. I am going with 3.73's.:cool:

My dash looks good, no rips or splits, I have the leather dash cover. Do you have the leather dash cover or the regular?

Shame on you! Do you know how many pleathers had to give up their lives to cover that dash?

You Neanderthal.

Those are ideal conditions. True Snipe hunters can hunt pretty much anytime.
When is snipe season? Doesn't it open in October? I seem to remember bow hunting snipe with my dad around Halloween years back.

If you can hit one with an arrow, then you are a far better shot than I am.

I use a shotgun with double-ought shot, no muzzle choke.
