    Thanks for sharing your pictures John? Question, what and where did you get those front mud flaps and did the tail gate badge come with the car?

    @ warehou.. my mate is in Campbeltown NSW and he says its 45c there ??  that is just a wee bit too hot even for me a total sun/heat worshipper. You are welcome to this -1c cold wet white snow stuff !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    These blue rim savers are from Rimsavers.ca, which is a product from the UK, now selling in Canada.  Originally, I found them on http://rimsavers.com/

    I first used them on the Z06 and was very happy with the product:

    Record heat here in Sydney…Hopefully will ease off now into Autumn otherwise February remains hot generally.

    Snow would be refreshing

    Hey John, nice pics!  Have you driven in snow conditions or did you get it after the thaw?  I’m curious b/c I intend to take mine up into the mountains in Northern California (Tahoe) and am wondering how it handles snow?  Did you get the winter tire package?

     

    Thx,

    John
