Took the chrome off the caps, cleared them, and put on new vinyl bubble logos.







Finally got her lined up! Very happy I started close to where it needed to be. Turn in is sharp and feels really sorted in turns.









Also this weekend was the Pittsburgh Vintage Gran Prix...





Even made a 240 friend!!





Everyone really, really liked the car. Even ran into the Mustang Marketing Manager and it blew his mind.

***Still taking it super easy, still in the tuning process.

That caster spec is horrible. Do you have your ball joints mounted backwards?

Is that possible? What should it be? What are my options using stock LCAs?

**Also, he did say that this just a starting point. Seeing as though I haven't even felt out the whole gas pedal at this point, I know these wetting will change.

I do have a power ZF rack, but I probably changed ball joints several years ago. I'm not sure what they are.

Power steering ball joints (offset).
LEFT: PN 274118. RIGHT: PN 274119 (RIGHT side pictured below).

Manual steering ball joints use the same part number for either side.
PN 274117.
