My Blue \'n Gold SVT with Mach 1 lip and VF rear mount.

Got the Mach 1 Mustang lip (Ford P/N 3R3Z-17626-AAA) from FORDSVTPARTS (sponsor) and installed it about 11:00 Friday night before JF. Since it was clean - I figured I'd post some pics. Did the mount a while back too.



Before:



After:

It's kinda odd how the SVT lip is shaped... I like the Mach one on there, very nice. Hot car!

The mount is nice - it definitely helps the 1-2 shift when you're really gettin' on it. I didn't notice a huge difference, but my wife definitely did.

Install on the lip was easy - trim off about 1/8 of an inch from the backside so it sits flush with the bumper, test fit using some spring clamps and follow the line fo the fascia to trim the ends. Somebody else did a write up - let me know if you're lookin' for it. Took me about 2 hours in the dark, on my back.

The lip was perfectly straight out when I put it on but after about an hour of ____ mph it was a little wavy in front. It's not a perfectly rigid piece at all - as you can kinda see in the 5th pic. I think I'm gonna try hitting it with a heat gun to straighten it out some.

Thanks for the complements.

It's sitting in my garage. It's beat up and waxed up fairly good. And for the hassle it would be to ship it - I don't know if I'd mess with it.

What kind of jerk would do that?



Your car looked really good going down the highway on the way to JF. I keep thinking of painting my 5-spokes a dark bronze/gold and putting them on that Euro. You might by wrxish, but I would be 2.5 RSish.
