It was time to do a little test drive around the yard with the little baby mechanic, to make sure it rolls around fine and turns fine with no issues etc.

I enjoyed the usage of a brick as the fine adjustment tool for the door, good idea. No noticeable pulling one way or the other in your brief test drive?

It was time to remove the headliner and those annoying blown airbags. The headliner is such a pain, maybe ill just strip the interior and remove all 4 doors and drive it like a jeep lol. AFter that was done it was time to drive to to an alignment shop and get everything checked out and adjust what needs adjusting.

Baby Mechanic and I removed the front silly chrome mustache from the truck, well mostly because it was damaged, but it does in fact look like a freaken mustache and i would love to find one just all black, anyone know why some get the chrome mustang and some just get the black lip valance even tho the models seem to be identical?

i found a few with the front lip just black without the chrome mustache, so they made both different kind, so what ill do is order at the dealer the part that matches the VIN of the truck with the all black.
