Added some new goodies


Recommended Posts

I've been putting a lot into the my SGT lately and figured I'd share with all. So here is a list of what I've done recently and some pics to go with. I also gave the rear diff the rusty but treatment while I was adding the suspension parts. First I added the Steeda billet rear lower control arms, did that last month, I got the Steeda adjustable panhard bar and the heavy duty panhard bar brace from Kevin Culver (dig it) since he did some upgrades to his suspension and had them for sale. He also sold me the FRPP lower control arm relocation brackets which I installed this week. That was when I did the rusty but treatment. I also added the Bobs Axle reservoir kit since my rear was venting really bad. Install on everything was very easy. The rusty but cleaning not so easy, lol. Talk about being sore the next day. And finally today I put the Moroso power steering tank on after I had the caps machined to work together at the local machine shop. I have two more parts on order at the moment both from Steeda, the 1 piece driveshaft and the adjustable upper control arm and mount. Anyway enjoy the pics. First few are before and after of the rear end.

Thanks guys, Finally got the driveshaft that was on back order. Didn't snap any pics of it installed, I'll get some next week, I have to get the car back on the lift to install the Borla's I ordered from Shelby. Install was pretty simple though and I had no issues at all. out with the old clunker and in with the new shiny one.

 

On a side note, went to a great car show today in NC hosted by the Chrome Ponies, despite the weather it turned out to be a great show. Had the opportunity to meet Kryptonite (Russ) and see his beautiful LL Shelby GT clone, as well as meet the very well known RUFDRAFT. Enjoyed the conversations and good times today. Thanks guys

Ha!!!! that was you at the show yesterday. Your car is incredibly nice, and clean. Thanks for coming by and supporting us. I'm glad that the weather turned better as the day went on. Hopefully you can make it to our picnic / Mustang cruise too. Ruff will be coming out with us on that also. Thanks again.

Hey Ken, thanks, it was a pleasure meeting all you guys. That's one beast of a car you have, one day I'll get mine to that level or close to it. I'm looking forward to the picnic/cruise. I'll pass it on to our club and let you know for sure if we're coming.

The Borla’s arrived from Shelby today :happy feet: :happy feet: , which means I’m taking a half a day tomorrow and going to the hobby shop to put them on :yahoo: . It’s like Christmas with all these parts arriving. I’ll post pics and try and do a before and after video for sound difference.

Jeff,

 

That '05 Legend Lime Tribute SGT is my buddy Russ' car. He did a pretty good job with it.....

 

(and for all you haters, there's already a thread started about his car, so lets not trash up Jeff's thread)

 

He did a great job with it, literally the only thing he doesn’t have is a CSM#, everything else is the same thing that came our cars.

 

He told me that he knew you when we spoke. He parked next to me and the rest of the guys from our club and I invited him over to sit with us.

 

He was also very clear about his car, even stated on the car show registration that it was an SGT clone. Either way, it looked great and it was nice to meet and talk to Russ.
