    Please graduate 6366

    After many hurdles, some roadblocks, a wedding, a baby girl , it's finally time to graduate after 3 years of accomplishing "my dream"
    6366 MK3 is now ready to hit the road. I picked up the kit at F5 in Oct 2007 and brought back home where it sat in the garage for a year (priorities).
    I would like to thank my wife Stephanie for understand what this meant to me, and supporting and enduring me during the times and "moments" of the build.

    About the car
    The car was built by me, I also did all the body work but gave the final paint to a pro. The colors are Honda Tidewater blue, Vw Satin silver and Honda San Marino red
    The car was a donor build from a 2000 Mustang GT(most parts where replaced or used as cores)
    The engine is a 4.6 SOHC full wire diet with EGR system, Hydro-Boost, assisted steering and brakes with ABS
    Turkey pan air filter ( Perl)
    FFR stainless steel exhaust with cats and Ford Racing headers
    Drive shaft safety hoop
    Finishline Raydot mirrors and fan shroud
    Team III wheels wrapped in Kumho tires 245-45-17 (front)and 335-35-17 (rear)
    Front and rear Breaksteins with FFR front lower control arm and rear FFR 4 link

    The interior has:
    FFR Carbon fiber dash with Autometer gauge in the competition lay out
    Kirkey racing seats
    FFR MK 2 Carbon fiber doors
    Repositionned hand brake with custom carbon fiber trans tunel
    Extented/modified driver foot box (stl_scott)
    Rear dropped trunk floor and battery box (jkleiner)
    Back wall cut out with semi-full hidden Stereo (inspired by Arch F)
    Enjoy the pics

    Thierry, it's hard to tell from photos only, but it looks like your sidepipes sit very close to the bodywork. I sure would hate the see the heat damage your beautiful paint.

    Yeah, i'm a lttle scared myself but i shimmed them out as much as i can. I ordered 4x extra side pipe flange and doubled them up on each side....? I don't know if it's bc of the 4.6 but they are tight. Besides, i plan on driving fast, so plenty of air will keep the body cool eh!

    Wow!! Dave, thanks!. That means a lot to me, especially coming from you! No problem, i could take some better pictures with a setting/landscape or better yet you could do it yourself at the open house.
    My wife and I are already have a picture of us on your website from the 2009 open house, i would be more then happy to add my car.
    I will be there for sure, and should be there with the car if my trailer is ready by Thursday. Otherwise, we could could hook up at the LCS.
    I know you are always REALLY busy at the open house, i will try and get you at a quiet time.

    Because of the "racing theme" of the car, i wanted to keep the carbon fiber dash as clean as possible, so I opted for this set up. Mind you, i'm 6 feet tall and have arms that are longer then average... What i'm trying to say, is that once you are strapped into the seat, not everybody can reach the button in the "stock" console. Some fab a console in the " F5 console", so it' easier hide the wiring and the reach the buttons .
    Here is a couple pics of my set up, i have no final pics on hand of final product, but i fabricated a cover out of the plastic battery box to cover the wires in the engine bay.
