    I’m honking and waiving from here and I’m not even a Cowboy’s fan. Loving this progression. Keep the photos coming.

    Here are some additional pics (mainly buffing, but what a difference it makes). Kory took it upon himself to add a little flare to the Fenders as well, said they needed something to tie them back into the body he felt they were just hovering out there. Wasn't sure when he first told me, but once I saw them, I knew exactly what he was talking about they look amazing. Steering Wheel was covered in the Blue Vinyl as well and first pics of Trunk and Carpet. Aaron was busy buffing so I didn't want to uncover the passenger compartment to take more pics...

    Ran out to the shop today and Kory and his team were knee deep into the final assembly. Between some of my electrical wiring and trying to uncover parts that hadn't been seen in several months, getting to the Goodguys show continues to be a challenge, but we are still very hopeful. There may be a few things that will require buttoning up later. Here are some updated pics though, points of interest may be Taillights in, Headlights on, Ford Racing Air Cleaner on, Side Mirrors on, Door Pops, Safety Pins and Window Switches in...

    Lots of work being done at the shop today, but at about 2:30 I called and told Kory that I just didn't think a Goodguys appearance was going to be in the cards. His guys had been at the shop since 3am working to finish out things and made good progress, but just small details kept popping up. I had forgotten to wire for a dimmer switch and the set-up on the stereo and cameras was taking a bit longer I think than anticipated. Heck, it took me nearly 3 hours just to get the Fuel Cap installed and the Filler Tube . It was always my intent to have the car done for this show. I had promised a good friend that I work with and who has helped out on the build a couple of times, that the last GG's Show was going to be the last one we walk into as spectators...so I am a little disappointed about that, but it is better that everything be done right. And don't get me wrong, Kory and his team were working their tails off, but never once have I got the sense they were short cutting anything. Anyway here are some pics of the day and I am sure we will have this thing rolling out in the next few weeks!

    Just a few updated pics this week, but first I will try to anticipate a few questions some of you may have based off some of the questions I have already received today...

    First, although Kory and his guys continue to work through some wiring and final details on the car...it is not complete as of today.

    Secondly, although I am extremely disappointed with the Boys performance in the last two games, I do not require a suicide watch (I am loyal and faithful to a fault, but I am also pragmatic).

    Finally, I am not changing the paint scheme on the car nor do I regret going with the star.

    Now here are the few pics I had mentioned...

    Rear Backup Camera...
    IMG_E7032.jpg

    Star Tips Installed...

    IMG_7047.jpg

    Amplifier & Rear Speakers...

    IMG_7038.jpg

    Defrost Vents...
    IMG_7039.jpg

    Hood Scoop Vent...
    IMG_7040.jpg

    And just a Cowboy faithful pic...

    Was wondering what was happening . Decent location for the backup camera, is that a license plate holder there as well?

    Well said Seth. I lived 30 miles from the Pat's Statium until 2016. They will always be my team.
    I did like the Cowboys back when Roger and Tom lead the team.

    Is that a Focal sub or is that a speaker? I am about to set the sub location behind the drivers seat and if that's a sub I did not think it could fit in that location.

    I was informed yesterday by Kory that they continue to struggle with the wiring on the vehicle... I don't believe they are challenged in the sense of what needs to be done and how to get it done, but more with regards to the fact that there are things that they are having to re-route, change or terminate that during my portion of the build I shielded or loomed (very well, Kory added) and as they uncover any issues or need to change some of those items they are having to chase down those leads, re-route or rerun completely. So in this instance my attention to detail is likely costing me more time and subsequently more money. Just one of things as a first time builder you have to learn from. It's funny, I think (and appreciate) how tactful and professional Kory was trying to be since I did the initial work, but I somehow think that he truly just wanted to say "you idiot, why did you cover all of this wiring?"

    I know my son feels for you as he is the one that has redone the wiring routing three times! He finally said last month that if we do this again he will layout and then undo the harness completely, temporarily test and fit everything, then put it into the final state. He said we may end up using a bag of small zip ties but that's easier to undo than trying to take off the heat tape and other electrical tape on the conduit covering the wires. For us lessoned learned for sure.

    Hopeful that SM1 will be back home in two weeks! They made some huge progress with the wiring this week. All headlights, turn signals & taillights operate as they should with indicator lights working on dash as well. Hardtop & Door wireless contacts are in and operational as well as the LED to indicate that the door safety pins are NOT engaged...
