The Day I've Been Waiting For Part II
#1
i finally drove her home today! it felt so good to drive her once again. it took me a little getting use to the torque of the 460 and it being a 5spd car with 3.89 cogs.

in the rear trunk, the rubbers are so tight and new and won't squish, the trunk had to be adjusted high for now and you have to slam it to close. it'll take some time for the new rubbers to squish some.

the rear bumper looks a tad crooked but that could be fixed. i'm really happy how the hood locks came out. they are about the stock location as they used the stock holes in the hood for them.

let me know what you guys think of my Maria!!!

Xoliex, I think the phrase "I'm really happy" in reference to the hood locks speaks for the whole car. If you are happy - you've done good. As to my personal opinion - I love it. A bold step to personalize your car but one that looks good. I like the color combo on the 80 model trucks and Bronco's and it looks good on your Mach 1. It makes it unique. Enjoy the fruits of your labor.

that gave me a good smile this morning. i'm going to take her out on a ride to fill up the tank and change the oil. however, i when i drove home some oil slung around and go on top of the hood. i wiped everything cleaned and now i can't locate where the oil came from. gonna have to trace it today after work.

and by the way guys, my name is between the two x's. name is Olie like the skateboard trick.
