Of course the first thing that needed to be done is tires! I have always done research before buying tires...before buying anything reall... Show morey...and I decided on these Chinese tires - YES CHINESE! I found a great deal through Wal-Mart. I read and read through the reviews that I could not believe were so high, so I had to try for myself for the money, which I did purchase through Walmart. The reviews were right I have been very impressed! The design is what you would want in a directional tire including a solid center tread to keep down the noise. They are not slippery in the rain. I do not do any racing, but, it is not realy easy to break traction or hear any squalling with the few curves around Wilmington to push. And, they are wearing well. I will definitely consider purchasing again if they are considerably better in price again.

The biggest part of the process, as with any other paint project, is thoroughly prepping. Most people fail because they do not properly prep and get in too much of a hurry. Do not accept less than perfect smoothness, always clean with alcohol before starting each paint color, and blow it off before each coat!
Man, do these steal a lot of glaring!

A true fan of Mustangs know the name did not come originally from the horse. It came from the P 51 Mustang infamous of World War II. I want t... Show moreo start paying tribute to the Mustangs of the past and what better start than where their name actually came from. And, I have the perfect spot for it on top of the big hood scoop. I brainstormed forever how to exactly to do it, besides obviously paying a lot of money for someone to airbrush it because that is one thing I have not yet attempted. I decided to keep it simple and looked up templates on eBay and ordered one in yellow that fit perfectly. I added my own touch with red and white to highlight the American symbol which also goes with the pony carttheme of red, white, and blue. I may have Just come up with an interesting and unique new direction…
