Cool. How do you like the new brakes ?

They're great! Only problem is when I was driving home car was pulling to the right. It had a nail in it. Got it fixed..then on the way home tire sounds funny again..turns out the guy had it up to 45psi when the rest are at 35psi. I think it's good now but it seems like every time I replace somthing that didn't need to be replaced there's a problem. :roll:

Looks great. How much did it cost to have the keyless pad painted?

Yes? How much :). It'd be nice to not lock my keys in my car anymore. Only have one set! Err...

When you buy the pad from Ford it comes w/ a black cover and a primed cover. I went on ebay and got a can of JP (Silver birch) paint that only 1 seller had. I just used that and then a coat of clear on it..perfect match. The dealers I called said they don't stock the spray cans..only touch up so Your probably better off just going on ebay. Oh, the can was 15 bucks plus like 5 shipping from CA.

Why'd you switch over the lug nuts? Having the studs exposed like that is only going to cause problems.

I didn't. I had 16" steelies w/ hubcaps and bought the 17" premier rims. I haven't gotten the covered lugs yet, but I don't see how it could cause any problems?

Exposed lug nuts rust. Why do you think Ford put those under hubcaps and used closed-end lug nuts on alloy wheels? It's not for aesthetics.

Be my guest. Take my wheels and tires too. I could use some new ones!
