I put new tires on and had a alignment before this trip.
A little tire wear should help the mileage figures. Did you have them set toe-in to stock spec or zero it out?

All flat black is within easy reach, but lately I'm liking :

Plasti Dip - Raw Titanium over Camo Brown

Your "redneck" is a brand to me rather than an adjective. If this is the quality of a redneck, my work is the quality of a sea urchin.

I like your back yard.
It's my buddy's place.

I haven't put a lift in my shop yet. Soon. Very soon....

I like the Plasti dip...

Quality of a sea urchin...??? Lol...You got to be kidding. Not only does that Mustang of yours look fantastic, it gets kick ass mileage to boot. You're way to kind.

I meant the Insight lol. I won't be doing a boattail for the Mustang, at least not anytime soon.

And I thought "what's a more half butted quality than a redneck?" For some reason, "I bet a sea urchin couldn't do that!" popped into my head, and I went with it.

You just inspired me to redo my Kammback and make a full boat tail. Awesome work and good choice of materials. My plan is to make a frame like yours and cover it in foam then fiberglass inside and out. Maybe it will look as clean but probably not.
