Good choice

Chris the owner is a good guy, and Troy the tuner is solid.

I've been on a panda tune for almost 3 years

G2 caliper paint

https://www.amazon.com/Temperature-L...+caliper+paint

Its brush on, but I wouldn't recommend using the brush that comes with the kit. There is a time limit w/ this paint as well, because it comes w/ a special hardener you mix into the paint, so once it's mixed, you only have so many hours to work, but its not like you have to rush with it. one kit was enough to do at least 2 coats on all 4 of my GTO calipers, plus some touch ups afterwords.

G2 is the best. Every other DIY kit has chipped on me.

i did more things.





Special shout out to Ford for an awesome wiring job behind the battery box (couldn't they have covered it better?), and a fucked up bushing (shift cable mount).





Thanks @Boomba Racing (Kamil) for taking care of me when I was indecisive and didn't know if I wanted the whole kit or not. I'm glad I did the kit, holy FUCK does it make a difference. I feel like I went from a sloppy fifths Hefner girl to a nice tight virgin.

Please tell me they cited him as #1 with running a read light. I'd hate for this to be considered your fault if someone was trying to make a light.

thanks everyone for the good vibes. I'm feeling pretty rough today. Arm is constantly throbbing. I see an Ortho doc on tuesday.

No RS for now. I want to switch focus off the Focus

I'm thinking newer truck, then remove 6.0 from old truck and install in Camaro. But we'll see how everything plays out first.
