    Euro Upper Rear Lights?

    Every place I find these online has an $80 core charge. For a reflector? Wow.

    Fusion Wheels

    Finally got some wheels for the TC. 17x7.5 Ford Fusion with Bridgestone Potenza 215/50 tires. Too soon to tell if there is any handling difference but it sure looks better.

    GT2.5

    So far, so good. I've got just under 5k miles on it now. Did one 1700 mile round trip from Baltimore to Birmingham for a race with one bike and all my gear in the van with no issues. Lack of aftermarket support in the U.S. is a bit disappointing. Only thing I miss is a backup camera since i have no windows but that'll be taken care of when i get around to replacing the head unit. Picked up a camera to add to the Clarion VX405, Rockford amp and Kenwood sub. Now i just need some warmer weather to do the installation.. I like the stripes a lot but I agree that something is missing. I'll do wheels in the Spring and go from there.

    Backup Camera Recommendations

    The blind spot mirrors just need to be separately adjustable. I sometimes wonder about engineers and accountants. And what's with no fold down left armrest on the driver seat? I guess if that's all I have to bitch about, must be a pretty good van.

    My audio project

    I've already looked and my pillars are empty, no wiring. Plenty of room for the tweeters there though. Running the wires should be pretty easy as long as the crossovers will fit where i'm planning on putting them. I'll post pictures when i do it.

    My audio project

    I'm about to do the same thing with component speakers in the door and pillar. I have the base factory radio with no screen and it looks like there will be room to put the crossovers in the dash behind the fascia where the cd unit is on the upgraded factory systems. Where did you mount your crossovers?
  7. Looks like you got the last one. They show as out of stock now.
  8. I've always liked Ford performance cars, Shelbys, Mustangs, the GT, especially in white.So....it only seems right that I pay homage with my new '16 TC XL van. Here's step one, the GT stripes. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2061452/IMG_0277.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2061452/IMG_0279.JPG https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2061452/IMG_0278.JPG Next will be to paint or hydrodip the black side panels the same dark blue as the stripes and add a white GT2.5. Wheels after that. Just wish they made Torque Thrust Ds that fit
  9. The wire is 8 gauge with a 60 amp fuse at the battery. I mounted a fused 1 to 4 power distribution block under the floor just behind the passenger seat. The trailer wiring, a 2 channel 50w amp for front speakers and a powered subwoofer will get fused power from there. Amp will be under the floor too with the sub under the passenger seat. I'll post pictures when i get around to doing the audio installation.
  10. Here are the Ford instructions - PDF Photos are here - pictures
  11. Just took a few but too big to post from my phone. I'll do it when I get home this evening.
  12. Not in mine. Nothing back there at all. I wanted to do a factory install anyway.
  13. I just wired my trailer lights. The Ford instructions had me run it from the battery box across the front to the passenger side then up through the fender. There's a rubber plug under the trim piece just in front of the passenger window. That comes out above the front passenger kick panel. Worked great. Can take some photos tomorrow if you'd like.
