2006 Ford Mustang GT Performance Brakes and Wheels Install - Project MILF - High-Heeled Horse
Once all of the bolts were...
Once all of the bolts were tightened and the brake lines were hooked up, the brakes had to be bled. Each caliper has two bleeders, one inner and one outer. We started on the passenger-side inner bleeder, working our way around until both sides were bled.
This is what the finished...
This is what the finished product looked like before the new rims were slapped on. The entire assembly looks a heck of a lot meaner than the factory brakes.
Even with the shorter sidewall,...
Even with the shorter sidewall, Project MILF's ride quality wasn't too bad. We felt the bumps a bit more, but by no means did we need to invest in a kidney belt.
|All These Bills!|
|Every time we open our mailbox, we find more bills. To slow down a future foray into Chapter 11, we're keeping tabs on our expenditures for Project MILF. Remember, this tally includes prices for parts only. In addition, the prices for the tires and wheels are the front two and the rear two combined. To find the individual cost of each wheel and tire, take the price listed and divide by two. The original cost of the car and labor rates are not included as there are variables to both figures.|
